Peer-review & Editorial Process
Each submitted manuscript that falls within the scope of the Proceedings goes through a double-blind review. Editor-in-chief has the authority to decide whether the article needs to be processed for the stage of reviewing and if the article does not fit the scope and very poor standard, it may not be sent for review. After the initial desk evaluation, typically the Editor-in-Chief will select two scholars in the field who will read and comment on the manuscript and make a recommendation regarding publication. Reviewers are instructed to evaluate the clarity of the research question, the soundness of the methodology, and the alignment of the conclusions with the evidence presented.
The Editor-in-Chief has sole and final authority for all editorial decisions. The Editor-in-Chief may request additional rounds of review, consult with additional reviewers, or request that authors make revisions to the manuscript before it can be published.
When the manuscript under review is returned for revision to the authors, the anonymous reviewers’ comments are attached to it. After the author(s) edit the manuscript according to the recommendations of the reviewers, they submit the manuscript again through the system for initial review and admission to re-review. The corrections made to the text should be indicated in a different color from the main one, so that they are visible to the reviewers for a second review.
A manuscript will be fully accepted only after all the revisions required by the editor and the reviewers have been made. Accepted articles will be submitted to copyediting and proofreading by the Associate Editors and the whole time from submission to publication is expected to last about four months.
