Peer review process and responsibility of the reviewers

The Editors-in-Chief will perform an initial appraisal of every submitted manuscript based on its work with the main target and scope of the Journal. Manuscripts submitted to the Journal will be approved by the Editor-in-chief followed by formal peer review process conducted in collaboration with editorial board members. The article is subject to assessment by the Executive Editor, Assistant Editors and Associate Assistant Editor and it is their moral and ethical obligation to accept or reject the article based on the merit, without any conflict of interest. The editors are expected to accept the article for peer review when they are reasonably sure about the quality and authenticity of work, while doing so the anonymity of reviewers will be preserved.

Peer review is the major quality maintenance measure for any academic journal. In this process, experts in the relevant fields analyze the scholarly work from every perspective, including its writing, the accuracy of its technical content, its documentation and its impact on and significance to the discipline. Reviewers play a pivotal role in scholarly publishing and their valuable opinions certify the quality of the article under consideration, establishing a standard for evaluation within research communities.

The final decision to publish the revised manuscript is made by the Editor-in-Chief.

The Editors-in-Chief and Executive Editor will communicate the overall result of the evaluation (rejected, accepted or accepted with modifications), including the reviewer's comments (Review process of the Journal attached)
