Upon submission, all manuscripts undergo a rigorous peer-review process to ensure the quality and validity of the research. The journal adheres to a double-blind peer-review policy, where the identities of both the authors and reviewers are kept confidential.
Initially, submitted manuscripts are screened by the editorial team to verify adherence to the journal's guidelines and suitability for the journal's scope. Manuscripts that meet these criteria are then assigned to at least two independent reviewers who are experts in the relevant field. These reviewers assess the manuscript based on criteria such as originality, relevance, methodology, analysis, and contribution to the field.
Reviewers provide constructive feedback and recommendations to the authors after the review process. Authors are allowed to revise and resubmit their manuscripts based on the reviewers' comments. The final decision on whether to accept or reject a manuscript rests with the editor-in-chief, who takes into account the feedback and recommendations provided by the reviewers. Look at the chart >
