peer review process

Step 1: Editor Assessment

When your article is received by the journal's editorial office, the editor or editorial office will give it a preliminary desk review. They will make sure that is generally appropriate for the journal.

If your article doesn't pass these preliminary inspections, the editor may reject it right away. This is referred to as a "desk reject," and the editor decides to make this choice based on their extensive experience and topic expertise. Having this preliminary screening in place might help you make a judgement quickly if your paper isn't appropriate for the journal. This implies that you can rapidly submit your manuscript to a different journal.

Your paper will advance to the next step, peer review, if it successfully passes the initial evaluation.

Step 2: First Round of Peer Review

The editor will next locate and make contact with more researchers who are authorities in your field and request that they evaluate the manuscript. Every research item typically needs to be reviewed by a minimum of two independent parties. Each journal's goals and scope will provide a detailed description of its peer review process.

The reviewers will be requested to read your content and provide feedback. Additionally, they can be asked to advise the editor on whether your manuscript is appropriate for that journal's publishing.

The editor will communicate their choice to you after receiving and weighing the reviewer reports, as well as after performing their own evaluation of your work. You will receive the reviewer reports as well as any extra editorial advice.

Congratulations! Your article is ready to advance to publication if you receive a straight acceptance. Please be aware, though, that this is uncommon. You'll need to edit your essay a lot and submit it again. Alternately, it's possible that the editor determines that the journal needs to reject your manuscript.

Step 3: Revise and Resubmit

Before your work is ready for publication, the editor and reviewers frequently have suggestions for how to make it better. They may merely make a few simple suggestions (referred to as "minor amendments") or demand more significant changes before your manuscript can be accepted for publication (referred to as "major amendments"). Authors frequently inform us that the reviewers' remarks can be quite beneficial in ensuring the quality of their content.

The editor will review the changes when you resubmit your work. They frequently ask the reviewers to rate how well you addressed their criticisms when they send it out for a second round of peer review.

After then, if the editor feels that the modifications you've made are insufficient, you can be asked to make additional edits or the paper might be rejected. If your edits have raised the paper's quality to the level required by that journal, it advances to the following stage.

Please make sure you formally withdraw your work from consideration by the journal before you submit elsewhere if you do not intend to make the changes recommended by the journal and resubmit your paper for consideration.

Step 4: Accepted

Your article has been accepted and you will receive an email to confirm. Your article will move through the final quality checks and in to Production where it will be processed for publication. You will be emailed by the Production Editor with a timeline and be provided with a link to a platform called Publishing at Work where you can continue to track your article’s progress
