The criteria by which reviewers are asked to judge submissions are good English, knowledgeable in international relations and global issues related to international relations issues, current active researchers, and have one or more recent publications in peer-reviewed journals.

Recommended reviewers

We may ask authors to recommend suitable reviewers on submission of their manuscript. When recommending reviewers, the following points should be considered:

-        Authors should not recommend reviewers with whom they have a conflict of interest, for example, a close collaborator or colleague.

-        Recommended reviewers should not be at the same institute as any of the authors listed on the manuscript.

-        Institutional email addresses should be provided for recommended reviewers, wherever possible.

Typical time taken to conduct the reviews is between 2 - 4 months.

The principles for recruiting reviewers and the selection of reviewers for a particular manuscript is the responsibility of the Section Editors and is based on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations of authors and editors, and the Editor’s own knowledge of a reviewer’s past performance. As part of our editorial procedure, we confer with potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to review. Reviewers should bear in mind that even these initial messages or conversations contain confidential information, which should be regarded as such.

Peer Review Process: Every manuscript submitted to Global & Strategis is independently reviewed by at least two reviewers in the form of "double-blind review". Decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation. In certain cases, the editor may submit an article for review to another, third reviewer before making a decision, if necessary.



The review process is strictly confidential and should be treated as such by reviewers. As the author may have chosen to exclude some people from this process, no one who is not directly involved with the manuscript (including colleagues and other experts in the field) should be consulted by the reviewer unless such consultations have first been discussed with the Section Editor. Reviewers must not take any confidential information they have gained in the review process and use it before the paper is published. Even after publication, unless they have the permission of the authors to use other information, reviewers may only use publicly published data (i.e. the contents of the published article) and not information from any earlier drafts.
