Appeals and Complaints

Authors may appeal an editorial decision if they feel that the decision to reject was based on either a significant misunderstanding of a core aspect of the manuscript or concerns regarding the manuscript-handling process.

To raise an appeal about manuscript peer-review, first decision, manuscript revision, editing, and/or second decision, please contact the Science Editor Development Department Director, Jia-Ping Yan via email: j.p.yan@wjgnet.com.

To raise an appeal about manuscript production, including typesetting, and/or online releasing, please contact the Production Department Director, Xiang Li via email: x.li@wjgnet.com.

For either type of appeal, please quote your manuscript number ID and an explanation of your rationale for the appeal in your email.

To raise a complaint regarding editorial staff, publishing policies or processes, please contact the Baishideng Office via email at: office@baishideng.com in the first instance.
