Peer Review Process

This journal uses double-blind peer review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.

In general, prospective reviewers will be chosen based on their reputation in the international publication number and study quality reviewers. For the next step, the editor sends a request letter to each prospective reviewer. The peer-review process involved at least two reviewers for each manuscript selected based on their expertise. The reviewers should complete the review within two weeks in each reviewing round after the review request was sent.

The decision to accept for publication is based on the peer reviewer's recommendations, based on which two acceptance recommendations are required. If there is a difference in the two reviewers’ recommendations, the editor has the right to seek the third reviewer's consideration. The final decision to publish is made by the editor-in-chief, editorial committee (national or international advisory board) by considering the advice from reviewers.

The article review process usually takes average 8 weeks. This review period depends on the editors and reviewers duration in reviewing the manuscript.
