Pre-submission Review

Pre-Submission Review

This project will aim to facilitate publication of scientific manuscripts regarding public health in Iran by providing a scientific critique before submission of the manuscript to a journal. SAPHIR fellows will volunteer as ad-hoc reviewers and will provide their area(s) of expertise to the authors. We will ask the first or senior authors to contact the reviewer directly. The authors will acknowledge both SAPHIR and the fellow reviewer in the final paper. If the comments of the reviewer led to substantial changes in the design, analysis and major revision of the paper, then the reviewer de-facto becomes a co-author. There will be no fee for this service.
