Reviewers guide

So far as possible, Icelandic Agricultural Sciencepeer review process relies on electronic communications among authors, editors and reviewers. Requests for reviews are sent by e-mail. The review request includes an electronic copy of the manuscript for review. The manuscript is supplied in confidence, solely for the use of the reviewer.

Review Format

Icelandic Agricultural Sciences has a particular format for reviews that can be downloaded electronically in a Word-format here:

Reviewer's Guide.doc

Reviewers are asked to deal with any points that they consider have an important bearing on the scientific validity of the research reported or the effectiveness with which it has been communicated.

Submitting a Review

Reviews can be submitted by completing the Review form and send it as an attached file to the editor in chief (editor@ias.is). Reviewers are also encouraged to use the reviewing options in Word (Tools/Track changes) to add more detailed comments for the authors to the manuscript itself – and send it as well as attachment.

Anonymity

Reviewer anonymity is protected as much as possible by deleting any indication of the reviewer's identity (other than may be provided in the body of the review) from the electronic files or other material supplied to authors.
