Tobacco Prevention & Cessation uses the online system "Editorial System" for manuscript submission, peer review and editorial handling. Submissions received by e-mail will not be considered. The journal does not have submission fees.
Receipt of a manuscript is acknowledged via automated email from the online submission system. This included a manuscript tracking number, which should be provided in all correspondence with the editorial office with regards to that manuscript. We kindly request that only the corresponding author be in contact with the editorial office, on behalf of all of the manuscripts authors.
All articles submitted to Tobacco Prevention & Cessation undergo peer review. External reviewing of manuscripts is double blind. In all cases the manuscript is also reviewed by at least one member of the editorial board and the Editor-in-Chief.
Authors may suggest reviewers that are qualified to peer review the manuscript, provided that they have not collaborated closely in the near past and that they are not from the same institution. Authors may also note peer reviewers who they would not prefer to review this paper. While the authors suggestions are taken into account, the Editorial Office reserves the right to handle peer review at its discretion.
