Peer Review Process

All articles will be reviewed based on the journal’s scope and author guidelines. All articles will also be checked for plagiarism through iThenticate or Turnitin. Manuscripts with a plagiarism rate of more than 20% will be rejected automatically.

Once the paper has been assessed for suitability by the editor, it will then be double-blind peer-reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees. The editor will select the reviewers. The factors that are taken into account in the review are relevance, soundness, significance, originality, readability, and language.

The suggestions from the reviewers should be categorized into: (1) may be published without revision; (2) may be published with minor changes; (3) may be published after major revisions; and (4) should not be published. If the reviewers do not agree upon the acceptance of the article, the final decision will be in the editors.
