Double-Blind Peer Review Process

This journal operates according to the double-blind peer review model and so the respective identities of the author and reviewer remain hidden.

Furthermore, the followings are the details of the reviewing process in this journal:

  • The editors determine whether the manuscripts comply with the writing guidelines.
  • If the manuscripts comply with the writing guidelines, then plagiarism check will be undertaken. We use Turnitin as the plagiarism-checking software. The maximum similarity index is 20%.
  • After passing the second step, the manuscripts are reviewed by two reviewers (blind peer-review). The reviewers do not know the authors' names or identities during this process, nor do the authors know the identity of the reviewers. The reviewers are the Editorial Board members.
  • Most submissions receive an initial editorial decision within 4 weeks until 7 weeks from the submission date.
  • An article shall be reviewed by maximumly of one month working days per reviewer & be sent back to the Editor.
