Cerebellum & Ataxias operates 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.
Cerebellum & Ataxias is edited by Professor Mario Manto and an international group of Associate Editors. Submitted manuscripts are assigned to an Associate Editor who is responsible for overseeing the peer-review process. In general, the reports of at least two reviewers will be considered when deciding on acceptance or rejection of a manuscript; a further reviewer may be invited in cases where these reviewers disagree. Final decisions rest with the Associate Editors and Editor-in-Chief, who aim to provide an initial decision within three weeks.
