Peer Review Policy

Policy

1. All articles submitted to the journal undergo a rigorous editorial review and double-blind peer review process. Each manuscript is evaluated by at least two subject expert reviewers, selected based on their expertise and relevance to the manuscript's topic. Reviewers provide objective feedback on the quality of content, literature review, research methodology, discussion, arguments, and conclusion. This multi-reviewer approach ensures a comprehensive evaluation of manuscripts from diverse perspectives and enhances the quality and validity of published research.
2. All manuscripts are reviewed fairly based on the intellectual content of the paper, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, religion, citizenry, political values, age, disability, sexual orientation, or socioeconomic status of the author(s).
3. Any observed conflict of interest during the review process must be promptly communicated to the Editor. Reviewers are expected to disclose any potential conflicts of interest and, if necessary, recuse themselves from reviewing manuscripts where a conflict exists.
4. All information about the manuscript, including reviewer comments and editorial decisions, is kept confidential. Reviewers are anonymous to the authors, and any communication regarding the manuscript is conducted through the Editor to maintain confidentiality and fairness in the review process.

We are disclosing here review parameters so that authors can understand the review process and its efficiency.
