Peer Review Process

From the moment the article is received on the website until it is published, the paper will go through different stages as per the following order:

1- The initial review stage (1-3 working Day)

At this stage, articles with the proper structure based on the "Guide for Authors" are sent to the editorial board of the journal for review. Articles with the appropriate scientific content which are consistent with the aim and scope of the journal, will be initially approved and the editorial board a will select a reviewer of their peers for them.

2- The Review stage (18 working Days as average)

The articles that have been approved in the previous stage are sent to at least three reviewers who have an opinion on the subject of the article, and after the review, articles are divided into one of the three categories according to the outcome of the review:

  1. Articles that need no correction and can be published as they are;
  2. Articles that can be published after revisions based on reviewer's comments;
  3. Articles that are not publishable.
3- The Revision stage (5 Days)

At this stage, the author or authors of the article must make revisions based on the reviews within a maximum of 5 days from the date of receiving the article or explain their reasons for not needing revisions through the journal website.

4- The final acceptance stage (7-14 Days)

After revising the article based on the reviewer's comments or providing sufficient reasons for not needing revisions, the article will be put in the publication queue and a written letter about the final acceptance and publication of the article will be sent to the author.

5- Publish the article

After acceptance, the article will be sent to the editor and page designer. After that, the authors will receive the final version of the article for Galley Proof. After publishing, all articles in PDF and XML formats can be downloaded for free on the website.
