Review Process

Each manuscript is reviewed by the editors and, if it meets sufficient standards, is sent for double-blind review by at least one editorial board member selected by the journal team based on their expertise. In the review process, there are at least two reviewers for each manuscript for the relevant topic. The judgment of the first reviewer will be the editor's top priority in making a decision, if there are only two reviewers. It takes three weeks for reviewers to complete one round of the review process. Generally, potential reviewers will be selected based on their reputation in international publication numbers and research quality. For the next step, the editor sends an invitation letter to each prospective reviewer. Once the potential reviewers are notified of their availability for the review process, the editor can create an account for each reviewer and then submit the manuscript through OJS. All review processes are conducted by double blind review and managed by the editor in OJS. The outcome may be to accept the submission, revisions required, resubmit for review, resubmit elsewhere, and reject the submission. The submitting author is given the opportunity to correct the article based on suggestions received from the reviewers. Specific information on whether the article is accepted and published or rejected is provided to the submitting author in writing. This process takes an average of 12 weeks until publication.
