A quick glimpse at double-blind peer review [Flowchart]

This is an excerpt from a document prepared by Editage under contract with SciELO aiming to support the elaboration of SciELO guide on types of peer review.

Double-blind peer review is one of the alternative approaches to single-blind peer review. In this approach, both parties involved i.e., the authors and the reviewers are unaware of each others' identities. All indicators of identity such as names, affiliations, etc. remain hidden throughout the review process. 

This flowchart outlines how the double-blind peer review process works. Feel free to download a PDF version of the flowchart and use it as a handy reference.
