Guidelines for OMEGA Reviewers

General

The goal of OMEGA review process is to evaluate the accuracy and significance of the submitted manuscripts and to provide the authors with constructive and timely feedback.

All submissions are to be reviewed for overall fit according to the Aims and Scope of the Journal. Please see www.OmegaJournal.org/aims.html.

The Editor-in-Chief first screens all submissions.

It is OMEGA policy to use a single-blind review process by at least two referees. (i.e., referees know the names of the authors but authors do not know the names of the referees). The primary responsibility of the referees is to review the paper with respect to correctness and exposition. Referees are free to comment on whether the article fits well with the journal objectives but the Editor-In-Chief makes the ultimate decision on that.

OMEGA requests that all referees complete their reviews within 6 weeks in order to permit prompt feedback to the authors. Revised papers should be reviewed within 4 weeks.

Items to look for

Here are some items the reviewer should consider during the review process:

Does this manuscript make a substantial contribution to the literature?
Is the topic appropriate?
Is the literature review appropriate?
Is the paper intellectually stimulating?
Are the procedures, methods and data analysis appropriate?
Is the paper technically sound?
Should material be omitted or added?
Should material be moved to or from an appendix?
Is the paper clearly written?
Is there a concise abstract?
Is the grammar satisfactory?
Are the references complete?
Is the title appropriate?
Does the paper have applied value?

Referee Report (http://www.ees.elsevier.com/omega/default.asp) (you will need to login EES as a reviewer)

The referee report may contain two parts.

·

The first part is to the Editor to be shared with the authors.

In the first part of your report please include:

Major comments – list all changes you would like to see in the paper.
Minor comments – typos, length reduction, indicate whether you wish to see/no need to see the revised paper
Recommendation – Accept; minor revisions; major revisions; reject. Include the reasons for your recommendation

Please submit your report via EES. You may also upload a .doc or .pdf type files of your report.
