Rigorous Peer Review

FUP ensures that all research output, in both journals and books, is thoroughly peer review by external reviewers, and offer the option of open peer review if required. Publications of a commentary or opinion nature may not be sent for external peer review but will include extensive editorial review and revisions. Through membership of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), our editors and editorial boards receive ethical guidance and professional networking. All of our journals adhere to the COPE guidelines for best practice.
