Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

1.A designated member of the editorial board will make an initial assessment about the quality and suitability of a submission in terms of scope, originality and plagiarism. This assessment it allows our qualified reviewers a better usage of their time and resources. Paper written within the guidelines regarding the structure of the paper is thus very important.

2. Once the designated internal editorial board member is satisfied about the suitability of a submission, it is sent to two anonymous peer reviewers for their comment.

3. The reviewer will assign marks and make comment about following six categories:

– Originality of the paper

– The value of the research question and research gap.

– The soundness of the conceptual and technical or methodological framework.

– Insightful discussion in result and discussion section

– The policy implications of the paper

– Academic writing quality.

4. The decision/remarks/suggestions will be communicated to the author(s).

Appellation Procedure:

  • If the author does not agree with the reviewer’s corrections, the author has the right to send an appellation to the editors’ office in the format “reviewer’s corrections – author’s comments”. This document is to be sent to the reviewer, and the editorial staff determines conclusively.
  • If no decision is reached, the editorial staff appoints another expert.

The editorial board considers all manuscripts on the strict condition that:

  • the manuscript is your own original work, and does not duplicate any other previously published work, including your own previously published work;
  • the manuscript is not currently under consideration or peer review or accepted for publication or in press or published elsewhere; the manuscript contains nothing that is abusive, defamatory, libellous, obscene, fraudulent, or illegal;
  • for all manuscripts non-discriminatory language is mandatory. Sexist or racist terms must not be used.
