Peer Review Process

Manuscripts submitted by the authors are subject to a preliminary screening based on appropriateness of the theme and quality of the content of the manuscript. Those manuscripts that are cleared the initial screening then undergo a double-blind peer review process. Two reviewers in the same or related field are assigned by Editor in Chief in consultation with Coordinating Editor to carry out the review based on the evaluation criteria. Based on the evaluation report of the reviewers, the Editor in Chief and the editorial team then make a final decision for acceptance or rejection of the paper.

Peer review process normally takes from 12 weeks to 16 weeks. However, in some cases it may take lesser than 12 weeks or more than 16 weeks. It is assured that the whole process will not take more than 20 weeks.

If the paper is accepted with reviewers’ comments, the paper will be sent to the author with them and the author will be given a maximum period of 4 weeks to pen the suggested improvements and resend to the Coordinating Editor. Authors are kindly requested therefore, to follow the guidelines for the authors when submitting the papers initially and finally, the improved papers before the deadlines as mentioned above.
