Wachholtz Verlag offers Open Access in the golden and green standard, i.e. publications can be simultaneously accessible on the Wachholtz site and on the site of the author and/or the institution. We generally ensure the high quality of our publications by means of a peer review process by our editors, external experts or a specialist editorial board. We are a member of the Crossref foundation and support the mission statement of the ENABLE! community.
In order to check that a text has been peer reviewed, the following steps are necessary:
a) Publisher receives manuscript or publication request.
b) Publisher reviews its quality and checks the qualification of author/editor.
c) Publisher requests from editor written confirmation that there has been an independent peer review carried out by experts.
- The peer review is organized and done by the editor; the publisher does not take part in the process and has no influence on it.
- Peer review reports are evaluated by editors, the authors may reply to them. Acceptance or rejection is ultimately decided by the editor
