Peer review is a major quality maintenance measure for any academic journal. Sudan Journal of Surgical Sciences and Research usually invites experts in the relevant fields to analyze the scholarly work from every perspective, including its writing, the accuracy of its technical content, its documentation, and its impact on and significance to the discipline.



The journal follows a double-blind review to ensure impartial editorial decision-making. The process involves that both the reviewer and the author are anonymous with the assumptive advantages of:

  • • Author anonymity limits reviewer bias, for example based on an author`s gender, country of origin, academic status or previous publication history.
  • • Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation.

Depending on the reviewer (s) commentary and recommendations, manuscripts may be rejected or accepted for publication or it may be sent back to authors for revision. After the assistant editor receives the revised manuscript, it is assigned to the reviewer(s) once again for approval of changes. The final decision to publish is left to the Editor-in-Chief
