Peer Review Process

In the reviewing process, there are at least two reviewers for each manuscript for the related topic. The peer reviewing process uses a double blind review system. Three weeks will be needed for reviewer to complete one round of the reviewing process.

Generally, the candidate of the reviewers will be chosen based on their reputation in the international publication number and the study quality. For the next step, the editor sends an invitation letter to each candidate of the reviewer. After the candidate of the reviewer has been informed of their availability for the reviewing process, the editor can create an account for each reviewer and then send manuscript by OJS.

All of the reviewing process is done by way of a blind review and is managed by the editor in OJS.
