PEER REVIEW

Pattern Recognition and Image Analysis  is the journal in which all articles are peer reviewed. We use a single blind peer review format. The final decision on the publication of the manuscript is made by the Editor-in-Chief together with the Deputy Editors-in-Chief, and, if necessary, together with other members of the editorial board.

Any invited reviewer who feels unqualified or unable to review the manuscript due to the conflict of interests should promptly notify the editors and decline the invitation. Reviewers should formulate their statements clearly in a sound and reasoned way so that authors can use reviewer’s arguments to improve the manuscript. Personal criticism of the authors must be avoided. Reviewers should indicate in a review (i) any relevant published work that has not been cited by the authors, (ii) anything that has been reported in previous publications and not given appropriate reference or citation, (ii) any substantial similarity or overlap with any other manuscript (published or unpublished) of which they have personal knowledge.
