Please note that all submissions to IPRR undergo a strict initial review for completeness before being assessed by an Editor, who will determine whether they are suitable for peer review. In the event that an Editor is listed as an author or has any competing interests regarding a manuscript, another member of the Editorial Board will oversee the peer review process to ensure fairness and impartiality.

While Editors will consider the peer review reports when making a final decision, they are not bound by the opinions or recommendations therein. Moreover, a concern raised by a single peer reviewer or the Editor themselves may result in the manuscript being rejected outright, so authors are advised to take care in preparing their submissions. We take the quality of our research articles very seriously and strive to ensure that all publications meet the highest standards of credibility and accuracy.
