Guidelines to Referees

MYCOBIOTA is a peer-reviewed journal.

MYCOBIOTA is a journal, committed to rapid editorial decisions and publication. The reviewers are asked to respond promptly. If they anticipate a delay, longer than previously expected, they should in due time to inform the editor so he/she can keep the authors informed or if necessary, to find an alternative reviewer.

The reviewers’ identities are not released to authors or to other reviewers. The reviewers should remain anonymous throughout the review process and beyond. They should not identify themselves to authors without the editor’s knowledge. If, however, the reviewer has revealed his or her identity to the author, the authors have to inform the editor, as soon as possible. Conversely, the Editorial Board does not accept attempts by authors to reveal the reviewers and/or to confront them.
