International Standards for Reviewers:
Peer reviewers play a central and critical part in the peer review process and at least two reviewers should review a manuscript. A clear communication between IJONMES and the reviewers is essential to facilitate consistent, fair and timely review.
The reviewer candidates should provide IJONMES with personal and professional information that is accurate and a fair representation of their expertise, including verifiable and accurate contact information.

Reviewers do not interact with one another openly.
The International Journal of Modern Education Studies (IJONMES)’s reviewers perform work for the journal on a volunteer basis and they are not paid as all journal teams do their work on volunteer basis.
Articles are submitted to the reviewers without the name of the author or institution. However, if the reviewer still guessed who the author was, and if the reviewers were employed at the same institution as any of the authors or have been recent (eg, within the past 3 years) mentors, mentees, close collaborators or joint grant holders, they should not agree to review.
The reviewers should respond to an invitation to peer review within a reasonable time frame.
