Peer Review Process

The Black Sea Journal of Engineering and Science adopts a fast and effective time management approach by ensuring the validity and reliability of the studies published in the journal. Therefore, the acceptance period of the research article/s sent to the journal is planned as 60 days on average. This time may change according to the return time of the reviewers and the responsible author who will make the necessary corrections.

Initial Manuscript Evaluation

Each submitted manuscript is pre-reviewed by the journal’s editor(s) for its suitability for the Black Sea Journal of Engineering and Science. The manuscript may be rejected before the peer-review stage if it does not fit the scope of the journal. In addition, the manuscript is sent back to the author in case it is not well-written. Checking of the manuscript by a native English speaker is recommended if it is written in English. If the manuscript is found to be suitable for peer review after the first evaluation made by the editorial office, it is sent to at least two reviewers.

The policy of Peer Review

Black Sea Journal of Engineering and Science employs a double-blind peer review, where both the reviewer and author remain anonymous throughout the process.

Reviewer Evaluation

Manuscripts needing revision are electronically forwarded to the author(s). The author(s) should consider the reviewer's comments very carefully and explain each comment or criticisms one by one; they should also prepare a detailed explanation in case the author(s) do(es)n’t agree with the reviewer’s critics. The article is considered as a new submission if it is not revised and returned to the editor within 60 days. The editor makes a final decision after consulted revisions and corrections made by the author(s).

Final Evaluation

After favorable opinions of reviewers, the Editorial Board is made the final evaluation. The articles accepted for publication by Editorial Board are placed in an issue sequence.
