Annual of Navigation reviewing procedure

Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two independent reviewers from outside the institutions of the authors’ affiliation; a double-blind review process is practiced, i.e. the reviewers do not know the identities of the authors.

Affiliation of the reviewers must be in the other institution than authors’ institution and if it is possible one of them from another country than the nationality of the authors of the manuscript.

The review must be provided in the written form by means of the filled checklist followed by reviewer’s comments with a clear statement on acceptance or rejection of the manuscript.

The names of the reviewers are listed every year at the web-page of the journal as well as in the paper version of the journal.
