Peer Review Process



  • Initial Review: The editor evaluates the submitted manuscript to determine if the content is suitable for the journal. Manuscripts with contents that are not suitable for the journal will be returned immediately to author(s).

  • Peer Review: Submitted manuscripts that have passed the initial review are subjected to double-blind review, where both authors and reviewers remain anonymous during the review process. A minimum of two reviewers are assigned to evaluate and provide recommendation for a manuscript. 

  • Decision: The editor makes final decision on the acceptability of a manuscript based on the comments and recommendation of the reviewers.
