operates via a single-anonymized 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. This format is the traditional model of peer review that most reviewers are comfortable with, and has a history of facilitating dispassionate critique of a manuscript. Prior to peer review, the Editorial Team assesses all Manuscripts to determine which are worthy of peer review. All published articles, including Data Notes, are peer-reviewed. Overall editorial responsibility for the journal is with the Editor, with Editorial Board Members acting as handling editors.
