Peer Review Process

All submissions can be made using our online journal systems. The editorial office will determine whether or not a manuscript is suitable for publication and meet the journal aims and scope before being processed further to the reviewing processes. Thus, those manuscripts submitted that meet our expectation/requirement will be process processed through peer reviews. Our representative will contact the author(s) once the results are available. The editor has full authority to make one of the following decisions upon received reviewers.

Publish as is:

  • Conditionally accept with minor revisions (editor will check)
  • Conditionally accept with necessary changes as recommended by reviewer
  • The article should be thoroughly changed
  • Reject.

Every article that goes to the editorial staff are read by the editorial staff. Those manuscripts evaluated by editors to be inappropriate to journal criteria are rejected promptly without external review. Manuscripts evaluated to be of potential interest to our readership are sent to the peer reviewer. Reviewer are unaware of the identity of the authors and the authors didn’t know the identity of reviewers. After that, the articles will be returned to the authors to revise. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer recommendation.
