Peer Review Process

All manuscripts will be sent to external reviewers unless they are outside the scope of C.I.M. Reviewers are asked to declare any possible conflicting interests.

Authors are asked to provide the contact details (including e-mail addresses) of at least three potential peer reviewers for their manuscript. These should be experts in their field of study, who will be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript.

Suggested peer reviewers should not have published with any of the authors of the manuscript within the past five years and should not be members of the same research institution. Members of the Editorial Board of C.I.M. may be nominated. Suggested reviewers will be considered alongside potential reviewers identified by Editorial Board members.
