Peer review process

The peer review process is used to assess the quality of scientific work unbiasedly. This system considered a benefit to journals, can guarantee scientific papers’ validity, reliability and originality. Although this process might take longer, it is essential for scholarly publication.

The articles will be checked to see how much they match up with other published manuscripts. Reviewers are asked to report any faults or plagiarism cases in manuscripts.

  The standard maximum length of reviewing process in this journal is 16 weeks, and the minimum period is about 5 weeks  It is essential to notify that in a few cases, this period might get longer or sometimes even shorter due to different reasons including quick or late authors or reviewers’ feedback, cancellation of reviewing process, inappropriate responses of authors to comments or proofreading and journal guidelines, misconceptions in submission process etc.

Editors, mainly editor in chief first observe the manuscripts sent to this journal through the management system. If the manuscript’s scopes are appropriate (based on defined scopes), if the editors find out that they include new and novel subjects, if the structure of articles sounds acceptable and if they follow journal rules and if no unethical issue is determined, the manuscripts will be sent to the peer reviewing process.
