Peer Review Process

The author’s manuscript initially reviewed by the editor in chief, who has complete authority to accept or reject a submitted manuscript on the basis of suitability to the aim and scope of the Journal and scientific merits.

If your manuscript is accepted for peer review process, it will be send to the section editor who is an expert in the relevant field. Section editor sends the manuscript to at least two reviewers. Editors may also act as a reviewer. The Author may be asked to revise the manuscript according to the revision comments uploaded by each reviewer and/or editor.

On the basis of comments of reviewers and/or editors, one of the decisions among the “Accept Submission”, “Revisions Required”, “Resubmit for Review” or “Decline Submission” can be selected by the editors.

If the decision is “Accept Submission”, than the manuscript will go to the Editing process.

If the decision is “Revisions Required”, the manuscript will be available to be accepted without another round of review, after the author have been incorporated the minor changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors.

If reviewers or/and editors address major issues with significant changes that must be reconsidered in the manuscript, a second round of review may be initiated by selecting “Resubmit for Review” decision. In this case, the Author will be asked by an e-mail with an attached outline of major issues to incorporate changes prior to resubmitting it to the Reviewers. For the second round, the section editor may send a request to the reviewers from round one or select other reviewers, but the manuscript will usually be returned to the original referees for evaluation.

In case, “Decline Submission” option is decided for the submission, the manuscript will not be accepted to publishing in this Journal and moved to the archive with ‘Declined’ status.

Once Author’s submission has been approved for publication, it is considered in editing (copyediting, layout editing and proofreading).
