PEER REVIEW PROCESS
The duration of the review process is dependent on reviewers’ responses. IJATE expects review processing might last for approximately 6-12 months. However, please note that the review process can take more time depending on the number of rounds the reviews need to take place.
IJATE's ETHICAL POLICIES FOR REVIEWERS
Conflict of Interest Statement: If you notice a conflict of interest after the review of the referee has started, inform the editor immediately so that another referee can be appointed to evaluate the article.
Double Blind Status: The referee ID is not shared with the author. To help protect your identity, do not include your name in your evaluation. Also, please do not contact the author if you know. Authors should also be confidential from the referees during the evaluation process. If the manuscript sent to the referee (s) is not blind, the referee(s) should inform the editorial office and not evaluate this manuscript. After such an information received by the editorial office, appropriate blind review will be provided and a different referee will be assigned to the manuscript.
Referee Attitude: As stated in the IJATE’s website on Ethical Principles and Publication Policy section, “ Referees should not use the information in the study for their own benefit prior to the publication of the article”.
Reporting Ethical Concerns: Referees also have the responsibility to report any ethical concerns, including, but not limited to, ethical concerns about copying, cheating, suspected plagiarism, or the misuse of/potential harm to humans or animals in research.
Fraud: It can be very difficult to detect a deceptive fraud, but if you think the findings in a manuscript is wrong, contact with the editor.
Writing the Review Result: Dear journal referee, please submit your comments, suggestions, and opinions on the text of the article using track changes, in addition to the relevant comment boxes in the online evaluation form.
