Peer Review Process

Peer Review Guidelines

The journal has a rigorous reviewing procedure. Each submitted paper is first evaluated for its style consistency and appropriacy of the topic after being checked for plagiarism. The document is returned to the author for more work before being resubmitted if it appears to be incorrect or inappropriate. At least two members of the editorial and advisory boards, as well as outside reviewers, assess the papers after they have met the original submission requirements. Based on the opinions provided to the Editor in Chief by the board members and anonymous reviewers, a final decision is made regarding the status of the work. The Managing Editor will then inform the corresponding author of the final decision, which can be Accept as it is, Accept with minor modifications, Accept with major changes, Revise and Resubmit as a new work, or Reject. Contributing authors may expect a decision within 4-6 months after submission (at the latest), and the Journal team works hard to keep the review process as brief and reasonable as feasible.

Accepted papers will be placed into issues after waiting in line. Contributing writers should be aware that they could have to wait up to two years for their work to be published in an issue due to the volume of submissions we receive and the backlog of accepted papers. It is advised for writers looking for an early publication opportunity to submit their work elsewhere.

Authors of accepted papers grant the Journal and RAZI University. Press the exclusive right to publish their works online at the Journal website. While readers are free to download published articles and use them for academic or investigating purposes, they are not permitted to be reproduced in any form or venue without the Publisher's prior written consent.
