Data collection

 The publisher keeps regular electronic records of the key review information and documents related to the manuscripts accepted for the review process:

  • For refereed manuscripts that are not published, the recorded data must include at least the name of publication and names of authors mentioned in the publication proposal, as well as the names of referees.
  • As concerns published refereed manuscripts, the recorded data must include at least the publication proposal by the authors, opinions issued by the reviewers, decisions on the publication made by the editors and sent to the authors.
  • This is not public data and will not be regularly reported to TSV (Federation of Finnish Learned Societies). However, the publishers will commit themselves to providing TSV or TENK (Finnish National Board on Research Integrity) with the details and documents related to an individual peer reviewed article if asked to do so.
