Peer Review Program

    a prompt, unbiased, independent and critical peer review system

In our peer review system, we ensure that submitted works are reviewed by independent, unbiased, critical and transparent reviewers. The manuscript submissions are reviewed by unbiased and experienced reviewers, and the editor assigned to the manuscript ensures compliance with our editorial policies and guidelines.

Those manuscripts are not considered for review if they have also been submitted simultaneously to other journals. Papers published in peer-reviewed conferences are also ineligible to be submitted for a review under our Peer Review Program.

The authors agree that, while their manuscript is under review by our reviewers, it will not be submitted to another journal.

Our peer review program applies to each and every submitted manuscript without exception. Below, you will find more details about our peer review process:

  • An editor ensures that at least two reviewers are invited to peer review the manuscript.
  • The authors’ information, including their affiliation, is removed from the manuscript, while it is shared with the assigned reviewers. This is to ensure that the reviewers can undertake review without any bias, pressure, favours, or without getting affected by the seniority/juniority of the authorship.
  • The comments and observations of each of the reviewers are received and are processed for an editorial decision. The reviewers’ comments and observations are shared with the authors for their required actions.
  • An editorial decision is formed based on reviewers remarks to either accept or reject a manuscript.
  • In the case of an accepted manuscript, the authorship of the manuscript is shared with an editorial report recording a decision based on the summarized reviewers’ remarks and the content originality examination report.
  • Our peer review system is designed to ensure an efficient, quality-based, unbiased, transparent, and independent peer review.
