Scientific books published by Aalto ARTS Books are subjected to a peer review before the publishing decision. Manuscripts are sent to at least two experts designated by AAB for peer review. The reviewers have to meet the following criteria: ‘The reviewers are PhD level researchers or other expert parties external to the editing board and independent in relation to the manuscript to be reviewed.’
The peer reviews are anonymous in both directions. The expert receives an anonymous manuscript for review, and the peer reviewer’s identity is not disclosed to the writer. Exceptions can be made in a manner agreed in advance.
