Peer Review Policy (Double-blind Review)

All the articles submitted to Tourism Spectrum will undergo the Double-blind review process. Authors on submission to the journal will remain anonymous to the referees throughout the review process. Authors are responsible for anonymizing their manuscript before submitting their paper. A checklist is provided here to help authors with this process.

i) Do not include author names or affiliations anywhere in the manuscript, or in any Supplementary Information files (or in any file names).

ii) Provide a separate title page giving all the author names and affiliations (when you reach the “File Upload” stage on submission, please choose the file designation “Title Page”).

iii) Do not include an Acknowledgments section containing author names in the manuscript on submission. The information can be added to the manuscript after completion of the peer review process.

iv) Do not include work in the reference list that has not yet been accepted for publication.

v) When referring to your own work within the paper, avoid using terminology that might reveal your identity (e.g. avoid phrases such as “we have previously shown [reference]”).

vi) Do not sign rebuttals at revision stage with author names, nor appeals.
