Peer Review Process

  • Two reviewers independently evaluate the quality of the submitted manuscripts. In case of a tie in their recommendations a third reviewer may be assigned.
  • Reviewers are required to send back to the editor the revised version of the manuscript together with the completely filled "Manuscript Review Form". 
  • To ensure double-blind peer review, it is very important for reviewers to remove their names or any information about them from the reviewer’s version of the manuscript, especially when review is made through “track changes”.
  • Reviewers’ comments and reviewers’ version of the manuscript are forwarded to the author.
  • The author does the necessary corrections and revisions and submits a revised version of the manuscript to the editor, along with a point by point description of how they have answered the comments and concerns of the reviewers by filling the" Authors Response to Revieers Form". 
  • The editor again sends the revised manuscript out for review. Typically, at least one of the original reviewers will be asked to examine the revised version of the article.
  • The editor examines the reviews and decides whether to accept the manuscript, invite the author to revise and resubmit, or reject the manuscript.
  • Final acceptance or rejection rests with the editorial board who reserves the right to refuse any material for publication.
  • Although the manuscript is judged as acceptable for publication on the basis of content, the editor reserves the right to modify the typescripts to eliminate ambiguity and repetition and for clarity purpose. However, the final proof-reading will be done and confirmed by the author.
