IEEE Transactions on Neural Networks and Learning Systems: Information on Comments Papers

Here is some information on how a “comments on” paper (CoP) will be handled by TNNLS.

  1. CoP is reviewed by one of authors of the paper commented on + at least two independent reviewers.
  2. If reviewers suggest a clear acceptance or rejection – over.
  3. If editor finds the CoP worthy of publication but there is a disagreement between the authors of the paper commented on and other reviewers then the authors of the commented on paper should be given a chance to submit a rebuttal paper (RP).
  4. The RP will be reviewed by an author of CoP and two other independent reviewers.
  5. If reviewers suggest a clear acceptance or rejection – over, else Editor makes the decision and that is final.
  6. If both CoP and RP are accepted, they will be published in the same issue.
