For some articles, work with the assigned Associate Editor to review the authors’ revisions. Make recommendations for final decision or for additional reviews or revisions if required.
  • For the Deputy Editor, pre-review all brief reports and non-major articles to decide whether they should be sent for peer review, pre-reviewed by an Associate Editor, or refused without review. When sent to Associate Editor, make final decision with guidance from the Associate Editor.
