Information For Reviewers

Peer-Review Process
The journal will adopt double blind peer review whereby both the author and reviewers don’t know each other. The submitted manuscript will be preliminarily reviewed by the Chief Editor and the Managing Editor and any manuscript that appears not to abide with the journal Manuscript Guidelines will be sent back to the Author with comments for corrections or rejected outright.

The corrected manuscripts will be assigned to at least three competent peer reviewers in the subject area for blind review. If two reviewers out of the three agree with the manuscript contents and standards, then the manuscript will be eligible for the publication and final comments from reviewers will be sent to the author(s) for revision. If two reviewers out of three disagree with the manuscript contents and standards, then the manuscript will be rejected outright or conditionally.

Additionally, no more than four weeks will be spent for retaining of article under review prior to removal from the journal database (this refers to delays by authors in revising article as per comments by reviewers). At most 10 days will be spent for review, and additional 10 days for accommodating cases of delays.
