Peer Review Policy
The submitted manuscripts are reviewed by a Triage / Screening Editor for originality of work, methodological suitability and plagiarism. The articles which fall within the journal 's reach and have satisfactory content are allocated to a minimum of two reviewers for peer review. Both the authors and the names of the reviewers are concealed in the peer review process to ensure a high-quality, objective and unbiased peer review for each paper that is submitted to the journal. To reply to the review mail, the appointed reviewers are given one to two weeks, and another week to review the manuscript. The average amount of time needed for manuscript examination under standard submission takes around 1-2 weeks. The reviewers submit their comments to the Editor for further study.
The manuscripts are accepted for potential publication on the basis that they are only addressed to one journal at a time and have not been published, submitted concurrently or approved for publication anywhere. This then reviews the paper and tells the author whether the paper has been accepted for peer review or rejected. When refused, the author is told accordingly.
The Editor can publish the manuscripts unchanged once all reviewers submit their comments, take into consideration, or reject the manuscript after minor / significant changes. In case the authors are aware of changes as suggested by the reviewers to send a final version of their manuscript to the study, with all the necessary changes. Once the authors have made changes and accepted the revised manuscript is reviewed whether it meets the publishing ethics criteria and the author.
The editorial workflow offers the Editors the right to reject the individual manuscript because of the inappropriateness of content, inadequate consistency or factual inaccuracies of results.
