The manuscripts found to be appropriate in the initial evaluation will be sent for double-blind peer review .

After pre-acceptance for publication, presentation will be required of:

i) the manuscript with the English reviewed;

ii) proof of payment of the publication fee; and

iii) certificate of English language revision of the text (the costs will be the responsibility of the authors).

The English language revision is waived for authors that are native English speakers. The BJVM provides a list with suggested English reviewers.
