  Peer Review Process

This is a process by which experts (as reviewers) evaluate scholarly the articles submitted to the journal. The objective is to ensure high quality published scientific results. However, peer reviewers do not make the final decision to accept or reject papers for publication. At most, they recommend a decision. The decision-making authority rests solely with The Journal editor and the journal’s editorial board. The Journal decision-making process includes the following steps:

  1. 1. Registration in the Journal’s website by the corresponding author and providing the full affiliation of all authors. Hereinafter, the paper with the proper format, as requested by the journal, can be submitted to the journal.
  1. 2. After a paper is submitted to the journal, the Journal’seditor and/or a member of editorial board screen the manuscript and decides whether or not to send it for full peer review. At this stage the paper may also send back to the author to reformat the paper or any other corrections (if any) to meet the minimum requirements of the Journal.
  1. 3. Only after clearing the initial screening, three peer reviewers are allocated to review the manuscript. This is also done by the editor or by a member of the editorial board.
  1. 4. The peer review is a double-blind process, which means that both the reviewers and authors identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.
              1.5. The Journal’seditor considers the peer reviewers’ reports along with the evaluation form (completed by the reviewers)    and make a final decision as follow:

  1. 6. As soon as the corrected version revision of the paper along with the responses to the reviewers’ comments are submitted to the journal (normally within two weeks), they will be checked by the editor and then are sent to one of the reviewers for final consideration and recommendation.
  1. 7. Based on the full peer review steps the final decision is made by the editorial board.
  1. 8. If a paper is rejected, the corresponding author will be formally informed by the Journal administrative office.
  1. 9. A formal letter of acceptance is issued by the Journal’s office for the accepted papers. This letter is sent to the corresponding author after the authors pay the paper process fee of 1m IRR.
