Guide for CiSE Reviewers

This guide for reviewers contains information about basic considerations that should be applied when reviewing a manuscript that has been submitted to CISE, and about the editorial standards of the journal. Other relevant information about the journal's aims and scope and editorial policies can be found at 'About CISE'.
Submitted manuscripts are usually reviewed by two or more experts. Peer reviewers will be asked to recommend whether a manuscript should be accepted, revised or rejected. They should also alert the editors of any issues relating to author misconduct such as plagiarism and unethical behavior.

CISE operates using a closed peer review system.

Publication of research articles by CISE is dependent primarily on their validity and coherence, as judged by peer reviewers and editors. The reviewers may also be asked whether the writing is comprehensible and how interesting they consider the article to be. Submitted manuscripts will be sent to peer reviewers, unless they are out of scope or below the interest threshold of CISE, or if the presentation or written English is of an unacceptably low standard.
