Peer Review Process

Pediatric Urology Case Reports is an online-only, international, peer-reviewed, open access journal. The CARE checklist is the main framework for the Electronic Review Form of this journal.

The undersigned author(s) certify(ies) that the submitted manuscript is original, is not under consideration by any other journal, and has not been previously published. All submissions to the journal are initially reviewed by the Editor and his Associates. At this stage manuscripts may be rejected without peer review if it is felt that they are not high enough priority or not relevant to the journal. 

Pediatr Urol Case Rep (Editor or Associate Editor) reviews new submissions according to its guidelines. When they meet all criteria, Editor-in-Chief sends two referees (double blind) and all manuscripts are read by reviewers, and revisions to the manuscript may be required. If the decision conflicts between two reviewers, it will be send to third peer reviewer. The typical review will take in 2-4 weeks. When the manuscript is received from peer reviewer there will be one of the following outcome and the Editor-in-Chief may decide to: 1) accepted manuscript without revisions, 2) invite authors to resubmit the manuscript after minor or major changes while the final decision is kept pending, 3) or reject the manuscript. When the manuscript is returned for revision prior to acceptance, the revised manuscript must be submitted within one week after the author's receipt of the referee's reports.

 Each manuscript will be accepted (sometimes on a conditional basis pending suggested changes) or declined based on the reviewers’ comments, and Editor-in-Chief’s decisions. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability. In the case of a controversial ground breaking manuscript that could have far-reaching impact on the field, further reviews may be sought. The decision ultimately rests with the Editor-in-Chief. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated.
