Peer Review Process

The received manuscripts will be forwarded to one linguistical editor to check out the plagiarism and evaluate the author/s writing quality. In case, the similiraty rate is high, and/or the manuscript's writing level is unacceptable, then the manuscript with the plagiarism report and/or the linguistical editor comments will be sent to the author/s to fix it. The next step is sending the modified manuscript to two reviewers with an evaluation form. If one of the selected reviewers reject the minuscript, the managing editor will have to send it to a third reviewer to evaluate its scientific importance, results, and validity for publishing. 

The third step comprises resending the reviewer comments to the author to fix them. Therefore, two authors out of three at least must agree the manuscript's soundness for pulishing to be accepted.
