If the paper was not published in a particular journal it may still have been submitted to and subject to review from said journal. When we send you requests for verification of reviews we simply ask that you confirm whether the review occurred. If you are unable, please decline to verify and leave an appropriate comment so we can let the reviewer know. Please also note that reviewers are no longer able to request editor verification.
Why did I receive a message asking me to verify a review when the paper being reviewed was never published in my/our journal? Print
