Annals of Coloproctology (ACP) has an online submission and peer review system at

All papers, including those invited by the Editor, are subject to peer review. A manuscript is first reviewed for its format and adherence to the aims and scope of the journal. If the manuscript does not fit the aims and scope of the journal or does not adhere to the Instructions for Authors, it may be returned to the author immediately after receipt and without a review. Before reviewing, all submitted manuscripts are inspected by Similarity Check, a plagiarism-screening tool powered by iThenticate (

ACP uses a double-blind peer-review process, which means that the reviewers do not know the identity of the authors, and vice versa. All manuscripts undergo peer review by at least three reviewers with relevant expertise who are selected by the Editorial Board. If the data need professional statistical review by a statistician, statistical editing is performed.

The Editorial Board has the right to revise and edit the styles and structures of the submitted manuscripts within the context if necessary. Once the decision on publication as accept, revision, or reject is made, it is directly notified to the corresponding author. After the final draft of the manuscripts are proven to be appropriate according to the publication policies and the styles of the journal, the decision of publication is finalized, and the expected publication date will be given. Rejected manuscripts are not to be considered again.

The decision to publish will be made by the Editorial Board of the journal after peer review. ACP’s average turnaround time from submission to decision is 4 to 8 weeks. The Editor is responsible for the final decision whether the manuscript is accepted or rejected.
