Peer Review Policy
The peer review process for journal publication is essentially a quality control mechanism.
After an editor receives a manuscript, the first step is to check that the manuscript for quality, originality, validity and whether appropriate method has been followed. If it does, then the editor moves to the next step, which is peer review.
Peer review is the critical assessment of manuscripts submitted to journals by experts who are usually not part of the editorial staff. The editor will send the manuscript to two or more reviewers. The peer reviewers will then prepare a report that assesses the manuscript, and return it to the editor.
After reading the peer reviewer's report, the editor will decide to do one of three things: reject the manuscript, accept the manuscript, or ask the authors to revise and resubmit the manuscript after responding to the peer reviewers’ feedback.
If the authors resubmit the manuscript, editors will sometimes ask the same peer reviewers to look over the manuscript again to see if their concerns have been addressed. This is called re-review.
The final decision on the manuscript is taken by the editor. Only when there are any conflict issues, the editor-in-chief of the journal is involved.
Journal decision-making process
After a paper is submitted to a journal, the journal editor screens the manuscript and decides whether rejected if it is found to be of insufficient quality, outside focus and scope of the Journal or if they are considered not original.
Editors-in-chief have full authority over the entire editorial content of the journal and the timing of publication of that content with no interference from journal owners.
