Peer Review Statement

Articles published in JBH go through a peer review process intended to establish the relevance of the work for the readership of the journal along with its quality and originality. Manuscripts submitted will first be screened by the editor and then those deemed of interest will be sent to reviewers in the field. It is a blind peer-review process. Using guidelines provided by the journal, the reviewers then make one of the following recommendations: Accept with or without revisions; not recommended for publication at this time but providing suggestions for revisions (revise and resubmit); not recommended. The editor will then consider the recommendations of the reviewers, make a decision on how to proceed, and communicate the results to the author. The decision to publish lies solely with the editor and the editorial board, whose primary responsibility is to the JBH readership and the scholarly community in general.
