IJSCER operates a rigorous double-blind peer-review process. This is a assessment with at least two independent reviewers, followed by a final acceptance/rejection decision by the Action Editor. A summary of the editorial process is given in the flowchart below. The following provides notes on each step.
Immediately after submission, this check is initially carried out by the executive editor to assess:
• Suitability of the manuscript to the journal/special issue;
• Qualification and background of authors;
• Ithenticate plagiarism check: We will generate a report showing text duplication and potential plagiarism, along with advice on where to modify text and add further citations.
Once this is done, the manuscript is sent to an action Editor based on the subject of the manuscript and the availability of the Editors. All manuscripts shall be handled by an action Editor who does not have any potential conflict of interest with any of the manuscript’s authors.
If the action editor finds that the manuscript is not of sufficient quality to go through the normal peer review process, or that the subject of the manuscript is not within the journal’s scope, the manuscript shall be rejected with no further processing.
