Review Policy

The journal follows a double-blind peer-review process for publishing the manuscript, meaning that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers and vice versa throughout the review process. The process involves the submission of a manuscript by an author to a journal for consideration. After initial screening by the journal editor, the manuscript is then forwarded to two or more expert reviewers who are unaware of the author’s identity. This ensures that the review process is impartial and that the manuscript is judged solely on its merits.

The responsibility of the Managing Editor:

  • The Managing Editor will assess the article submitted by the author and send to the internal reviewers for primary review.
  • The internal reviewers initially reviewed the submitted manuscript to ensure that it complies with the journal’s publication ethics, author’s guidelines, and research areas of the journal.
  • Checking the plagiarism of the submitted manuscript and accepting the plagiarized free manuscript for external review.
  • Sending the manuscript to the Editorial Team for evaluation upon fulfilling the journal’s criteria.
  • Responsible for publishing after receiving the galley proof from the author, including proofreading, copy editing, and resolving any issue arises.

  • After satisfying the publication area, the manuscript sends to multiple reviewers who are experts in the same research area.

  • The Editor-in-Chief will decide whether the article is acceptable to publish or not.

The responsibility of the Reviewer:

  • The reviewers provide feedback, suggestions for improvements, and recommendations to the managing editor to decide whether the article is acceptable or needs to request some changes from the author’s side.
  • The reviewers are responsible for providing unbiased feedback in a competent and written format timely.
  • The reviewer's responsibility is to review the manuscript to ensure that it complies with the author's guidelines.
