Peer Review Process

When a manuscript is submitted to the journal, it is assessed to see if it meets the criteria for submission. If it does, the editorial team will select potential peer reviewers within the field of research to peer-review the manuscript and make recommendations for the benefit of the entire scientific community.

Sometimes authors find the peer-review process intimidating because it can lead to the rejection of their manuscript. Keep in mind that revisions and improvement are part of the publication process and actually help raise the quality of your manuscript.

Peer review is a positive process, an integral part of scientific publishing that confirms the validity of the science reported peer reviewers are experts who volunteer their time to help improve the journal manuscripts they review and they offer authors free advice.

Through the peer-review process, manuscripts should become:

More robust: Peer reviewers may point out gaps in the manuscript that require more explanation or additional experiments.

Easier to read: If parts of the manuscript are difficult to understand, it is necessary to clarify or fix them. After all, if an expert cannot understand what you have done, it is unlikely that a reader in a different field will understand.

More useful: Peer reviewers also consider the importance of the paper to others in your field and can make suggestions to improve or better highlight this to readers.

Of course, in addition to offering authors advice, another important purpose of peer review is to make sure that the manuscripts published in the journal are of the correct quality for the journal’s aims. Type of peer review {Double blind}.
