All reviews are independent assessments of the full manuscript on a double-blind basis (anonymous author-anonymous reader) by at least two recognised specialists in the broad area of the manuscript’s focus, using the following criteria:

  • the soundness and relevance of the social science scholarship to HSRC research priorities
  • the importance of the subject matter and originality of the approach
  • the strength of argument
  • the clarity of the organisation and quality of the writing
  • the clear theoretical framework, as well as conceptual coherence

Reviewers’ reports are submitted to our independent Editorial Board for consideration. The Board, in turn, makes recommendations on the publication or not of manuscripts under review.
