PEER REVIEW PROCESS:
The evaluation procedures are under constant review and the HFSP secretariat works closely with the members of the review committees and the Council of Scientists to ensure that all applications are assessed fairly and thoroughly. One editor will usually take each article through from start to finish. The HFSP's team of research editors aims to read all of newly submitted research articles within three days. If your article is potentially suitable for The HFSP that editor will ask a senior colleague to approve it, and, if that succeeds, he or she will send your article to two external peer reviewers. Usually the final result of the paper review is sent to the authors within 12-14 working days.
