Reviewers who repeatedly decline to review manuscripts following their formal inclusion on the journal's website will be removed from the list of reviewers at the Editor's discretion.

Notes for Authors
There is no charge to submit your article and have it published in the journal, and there is no charge for color printing. Nova offers a number of optional publication services that carry fees, but authors are not required to select these services, and the services won’t be offered until after acceptance of the articles. These services include Open Access, article offprints, discounted print copies of the journal issue, and licenses for use of the published articles.
Submission of an article implies that the authors will assign the copyright to Nova if their article is accepted for publication. A standard Copyright Transfer Form will be provided to the Corresponding Author of each article during the page proof stage of production.
Authors will receive a complimentary PDF of the full final issue and a complimentary PDF of his or her final article upon publication.
Authors may deposit and display the proofed versions of their articles in and on their personal non-commercial and affiliate non-commercial repositories and websites at any time. The same may be done with their final published articles only after a period of one year has elapsed from the day of publication.
Original or review articles submitted to
Journal of Stem Cells
are sent for peer review to at least three reviewers. This number of reviewers can increase if some of the reviewers fail to respond, or if there is a conflict between the reviewers on the decision making process by the Editor. If some of the reviewers' comments are severely adverse in nature then the Editor will seek the response of additional reviewer(s). A final decision to accept or reject the article is made by the Editor after seeking a suitable response from the authors to the reviewers' comments. The revised version of the article may be sent back to the same reviewers before a decision is made. The authors' responses and rebuttals on the reviewer(s) comments on the revised version of the manuscript will determine the decision of acceptance or rejection of the manuscript / article.
