Peer review process

by admin

Each Article will be checked by editorial office and the final decision for publication passes through 2 steps:

  1. The editorial team can reject the article without review for two reasons:
  1. The article is out of the scope of the journal
  2. The article is missing important sections

If the article passes this phase, the editorial board member will make a second review where it evaluates the quality and innovations of the article for the final review process. The final peer review process is double blinded. The editor in chief will make a decision after receiving a peer review reports with recommendations as follows:

  1. Accepted
  2. Minor revision
  3. Major revision
  4. Rejected

The whole process will last from 30-45 days, including the third review. At the end of each stage of the process the correspondent author will receive a reply via email for the status of the article

The reasons for the decision will be communicated to the authors. When the decision is evaluated as with minor/major revision, and authors followed with revisions but which according to the reviewers remains unsatisfactory, the editor in chief has the right to reject the article.
