The Peer Review Process:

Alive2green has introduced and is committed to a minimum of 10 chapters or half of the chapters whichever is greater to be peer reviewed in all the handbooks. The concept of Peer review is based in the objective of the publisher to provide professional, academic content.

“Peer review is a generic term that is used to describe a process of self-regulation by a profession or a process of evaluation involving qualified individuals with the related field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards, improve performance, and provide credibility” Wikipedia July 2010

Alive2green Peer Review Process:

The Editor will allocate a reviewer to the article and send it to the specified reviewer who will be well acquainted with the topic. Reviewers will remain anonymous to the contributors.

These reviewers will return an evaluation of the work to the Editor within 3 days, noting weaknesses or problems along with suggestions for improvement (in a word document with the changes tracked.) The outcome of the reviewer’s recommendation would be one, or a combination of the following:

• to accept the article as is
• to accept the article in the event that it’s contributors make certain changes
• to reject the article but to encourage revision and invite resubmission,

The Editor then evaluates the reviewer’s submission and is under no formal obligation to accept the recommendations. The editor may then also add his/her opinion of the article and the context/level of the publication before passing the decision back to the contributors. The contributor will then be required to submit the amended /revised article within 3 days.
