Peer Review Process

  • All manuscripts submitted for publication are subjected to plagiarism screening. Reports created by the screening system (iThenticate ) will be evaluated by editor in chief or authorized subjects editors for final decision.  

  • Manuscripts passed plagiarisim screening then undergo rigorous peer review, based on an initial editor screening (format of the manuscript, originality of the study, language used) followed by a blind review process by two or three anonymous reviewers.         

  • The reviewers are usually chosen from either the Editorial Board, or the Reviewers Panel. Typically, the editor will seek reviewers’ feedback before considering your submission for publication. In that case, the editor will wait until he/she receives all reviewer comments on your submission. The editor will then email you directly with a decision. Editorial Board is the only authority to enable the communication between the author(s) and the manuscript reviewers.
