Editorial Policies

Peer-Review Process

AIMSCI Cell Med Press adopts a unique peer-review process for both its journal manuscripts and book manuscripts.

Peer-Review Process for Journal Manuscripts

As an AIMSCI-sponsored journal with no manuscript processing and publication fees, Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) strives to contribute to the advancement of science by publishing cutting-edge knowledge on reactive oxygen and related species/entities (including antioxidants) in chemistry, bioscience, and medicine. The Journal publishes articles of the highest scientific quality and integrity and emphasizes the quality rather than the quantity of the publications. In this regard, all manuscripts submitted to ROS will undergo a two-phase review process. The manuscript will be first evaluated by the Journal’s Editorial Review Committee consisting of three internationally recognized experts in the field for its scientific merit and broad impact. This editorial review typically takes less than 3 working days. Manuscripts judged to be of significant scientific merit and broad impact will then undergo the second phase peer review by at least two outside experts in the field. On the other hand, manuscripts judged to be of limited scientific merit and little broad impact by the Editorial Review Committee will be declined without further undergoing the second phase peer review.

The eventual acceptance of a manuscript for publication in ROS will be primarily based on assessing the peer reviewers’ comments in four areas including (1) the originality, (2) the quality, (3) the potential impact, and (4) the readability of the work in conjunction with the recommendations by the Journal’s Editorial Review Committee.

Peer-Review Process for Book Manuscripts

All AIMSCI Cell Med Press books are peer-reviewed, meaning that before sending to prints and digital publishing, the book manuscript will be first sent to two outside experts for comments, and the book author will then be asked to incorporate the reviewers’ constructive comments into the final book manuscript. The outside peer-review process is sponsored by AIMSCI Cell Med Press, meaning that Cell Med Press covers all the expenses incurred during the peer-review process.

Serving on the Editorial Board

The Reactive Oxygen Species (ROS) Editorial Office greatly appreciates the support and contributions from the members of the editorial board. Serving on the editorial board of ROS or any other future Journals of Cell Med Press does not bear any obligations though the board member is encouraged to submit and/or recommend manuscripts of sufficient quality to the Journal. Appointment for serving on the editorial board of ROS is currently on a 3-year term. The board member may decide to discontinue the appointment at any time by sending an email notice to the ROS Editorial Office (ros.editorial@aimsci.com) without providing any reasons. Likewise, the Journal Editorial Office reserves the right to terminate the board member status at any time during the 3-year appointment term without any stated reasons.
