Peer Review Process

A manuscript submitted is evaluated through Initial Review by Editorial Board. If the article matches the journal requirements in terms of the scope, originality, novelty sufficiency of experimental data, and format, at least 2 (two) peer reviewers are assigned to review the manuscript with the Double-Blind Peer Review Process. After the review process is finished, the assigned editor makes the decision for the article. If the article needs revision, the manuscript is returned to the authors to revise. After that, the editor makes the final decision (accepted or rejected). In each manuscript reviewed, peer reviewers will be rated based on the substantial and technical aspects.

Authors could recommend potential reviewers on the cover letter. Journal editors will check to make sure there are no conflicts of interest before contacting those reviewers and will not consider those with competing interests. Reviewers are asked to declare any conflicts of interest. Authors could also enter the names of potential peer reviewers they wish to exclude from consideration in the peer-review of their manuscript, during the initial submission progress. The editorial team will respect these requests as long as this does not interfere with the objective and thorough assessment of the submission. Assignment of the peer review is based on the expertise and experiences in research and publication relevant to the field of the manuscript to be reviewed. The number of citations and an h-index value of peer reviewers is parameter examples for consideration in assigning as a reviewer.
