Urgentia operates a conventional single-blind reviewing policy in which the reviewer's name is always concealed from the submitting author.

Generally each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible, and an editorial decision is generally reached within 5-6 weeks of submission.

Please note that in any papers where the Editor-in-chief is an author the processing of the manuscript is handled by an Associate Editor and the Editor-in-chief is totally blinded from the procedure and will never have access to the peer reviewer details.
