Peer Review Process


The manuscripts are primarily evaluated by our internal screeners who check the articles for any methodological flaws, format, and their compliance with the journal’s focus and scope. A notification will be sent to the authors with the submission code allocated. All future correspondences should be based on the code. Employing a double-blind peer-review, the articles will be reviewed by at least two peer-reviewers and additional reviewers where it deems necessary. Their comments will be passed to the authors and their responses to the comments along with the reviewers’ comments will then be evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief and the Editorial Board. The final review process will be discussed in the editorial board sessions. Base on the comments, and the journal’s focus and scope, the Editor-in-Chief will decide which articles should be published.
