Peer Review Process

The manuscript submitted by the author will be reviewed by an international committee of reviewers to ensure that the manuscript presents a high quality research and original scientific work. The steps followed by the Asian Online Journals during the review process are given below.

  • After receiving the manuscript the corresponding author is sent a confirmation email
  • The editorial board screens the manuscript and sends it to the referees for blind review (the referees are selected according to their expertise in the field).
  • All manuscripts are evaluated according to the reviewers’ guidelines. On the basis of their evaluation, the referees recommend the paper either for publication or for rejection or they can suggest some necessary changes if it is needed.
  • Finally the editorial board takes the final decision for publication of the article. If a paper is accepted for publication, the corresponding author is issued an acceptance letter.
  • Normally, the review process is completed within four weeks.
