Peer Review Process
All manuscripts that are sent in are first subject to a pre-process check that is performed by the editorial board. Here, the manuscript is checked if it complies with all of the agreed upon points in the checklist during the submission process, such as the style format, language and authorship.
After passing the preprocess check, manuscripts are then sent to the editor-in-chief, where it will be checked for other factors mentioned in the submission guidelines, such as the originality, similarity rate and figure’s clarity.
Finally, the editorial board/ editor sections will assign the manuscript to two evaluators who specialize in the research paper’s subject, where it is subjected to a double blind review.
A preliminary decision will be sent to the author, informing him of any issues/ criticisms of the submitted manuscripts. The author must then amend the manuscript with the editor’s recommendations and resubmit the manuscript.
The final manuscript will be checked and a final decision will be performed based on the reviewers’ recommendations, as follows:
- Accept submission
- Revisions required (Minor / Major)
- Resubmit for review
- Reject the submission
