Confidentiality and Pre-publicity

Confidentiality

 

SALR keeps all details about a submitted manuscript confidential and does not comment to any outside organization about manuscripts that are either under consideration or that have been rejected.

 

After a manuscript is submitted, correspondence with SALR, referees’ reports and other confidential material, regardless of whether or not the submission is eventually published, must not be posted on any website or otherwise publicized without prior permission. The Editorial Board Members themselves are not allowed to discuss manuscripts with third parties or to reveal information about correspondence and other interactions with authors and referees.

 

Referees of manuscripts submitted to SALR undertake in advance to maintain the confidentiality of manuscripts and any associated supplementary data.
