Peer review process

All manuscripts submitted to Paracelsus Proceedings of Experimental Medicine undergo a peer review process by international experts in the field. The peer review process is single-blinded as reviewers are anonymous to the authors. Reviewers are asked to respond in a timely manner to the editors' requests to evaluate a manuscript. Editors and reviewers will apply the highest scientific publishing standards.

The Editor-in-Chief and the publisher are responsible for ensuring high-quality peer review. All decisions are made after careful evaluation and are final.
