A double blind peer-review procedure has been used for all the manuscripts submitted to Toxins, February 19, 2016 10:39
Effective on the first issue of 2016, a double blind peer-review procedure has been used for all the manuscripts submitted to Toxins: authors’ names will not be known to reviewers until the paper is published. The rationale for this change is a growing concern that bias—both deliberate and unconscious—can affect the review process. We feel that a double-blind review procedure will help preserve objectivity in the peer-review process. Technical details on preparation of a manuscript for double-blind peer-review can be found in the Instructions for Authors section of the Toxins website: http://www.mdpi.com/journal/toxins/instructions.
