An international peer-review system for a Chinese scientific journal
Abstract:The characteristics and requirements of a world-class journal were considered in establishing a rigid peer-review system for scientific papers submitted for publication in the English-language Journal of Zhejiang University SCIENCE [JZU(S)] from 2002 onward. Four hundred and thirty-five contributions were received between January and December 2002, and these were sent for pre-publication review to appropriate leading scientists in the USA, the UK, Ireland, France, Canada, Australia, Austria, Germany, New Zealand, the Netherlands, Finland, Poland, Portugal, Italy, Israel, Spain, Greece, Belgium, Sweden, Switzerland, Japan, Singapore, Slovakia, India, Greece, the Czech Republic, Mexico, Hong Kong, Macao and Taiwan. Our experience showed that such an international peer-review system plays an important part in ensuring the high quality of a journal's contents and in helping it achieve an international reputation.
