As of 10 May 2021, the JRAI uses double-blind review. This means that the reviewer is unaware of the author’s identity and vice versa.
We acknowledge that in a field such as anthropology, the most appropriately qualified reviewers may have previous or existing professional relationships with authors and do not view this as a necessary barrier to review. However, reviewers should not be close colleagues of authors or have close personal relationships, which might compromise the capacity of a reviewer to make a free and fair assessment. If you suspect a conflict of interest, please alert the editor.
We do not assign papers to members of the editorial team where such potential conflicts of interest exist.
