Confidentiality & Anonymity

Inquest performs its review process strictly confidential and ensures all the personnel involved in the review process treats the process with the same respect. All the reviewers are strictly restricted from directly contacting or consulting the contributors who have worked directly on the submitted manuscript unless it is already discussed and approved by the Editorial team. Reviewers are also restricted from taking knowledge from any confidential information they might have gained during the review process and use it before the material is published.

Inquest will not release the identity of reviewers to the authors unless they ask to be identified. The Editor-in-Chief and Associate Editor names are published with accepted papers, but the reviewers will remain anonymous for various reasons.
