Journal of Inflammation operates using a single-blind peer-review system, where the reviewers are aware of the names and affiliations of the authors, but the reviewer reports provided to authors are anonymous. The benefit of single-blind peer review is that it is the traditional model of peer review that many reviewers are comfortable with, and it facilitates a dispassionate critique of a manuscript.
Prior to January 2010 the journal operated under a policy of open peer review, meaning that a 'pre-publication history' including signed reviews was published alongside the articles. If you wish to request details of the pre-publication history for an article published during this time, please contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Edited by Paul Kirkham and Adriano Rossi, Journal of Inflammation is supported by an expert Editorial Board. Publication of research articles by Journal of Inflammation is dependent primarily on their scientific validity and coherence as judged by our external expert editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field.
Affiliated with the British Inflammation Research Association (BIRAs).
