2.1. Initial Screening
After the successful submission, the editorial board will conduct an initial screening of the submitted papers to ensure that the manuscript meets the scope of the journal, the basic structure of academic papers, and minimum editing standards. The editorial board will eliminate manuscripts that do not meet the minimum standards, do not meet the journal scope, or have a high similarity rate with an original article or conference publication. For papers that have serious moral problems or may cause serious adverse social impact, the editorial board has the right to reject these manuscripts after consulting relevant experts. Manuscripts that pass the preliminary screening will be submitted for peer review.
2. 2. Review Process
If a manuscript goes through the preliminary review and enters the peer review stage, the Editor sends the manuscript to at least two peer reviewers to obtain their consent for the review of the manuscript. These reviewers are selected on the basis of their knowledge and experience in the subjected area included in the manuscript. They are provided with the title and abstract of the manuscript. The reviewers are finally approved by the Editorial Board of the Journal. The reviewers are invited in confidence to give their assessment and recommendations on the suitability of the manuscript and provide comments for the author(s) and Editor. The identity of author(s) is not disclosed to the reviewer and the manuscript is reviewed blindly by the reviewers. Similarly, the identity of the reviewers is also not disclosed to the authors without written permission form the reviewer.
The review process usually takes four to six weeks. However in circumstances beyond the control of the Editor this time could be extended.
When the review comments are returned, if the reviewer gives revision comments, it will be returned to the author for revision and resubmission. If two reviewers accept this paper, then it may be considered accepted. However, even though the manuscript is accepted by the reviewers, the editor may reject on the basis of poor originality, quality, relevance, presentation and recommendations. If, in the end, two reviewers reject the paper, it will be rejected. If one reviewer accepts the paper and another rejects it, the decision of the editor is final and the author will be notified. After deciding to accept a paper, the editorial board will re-check the paper for plagiarism and format so that the content of the paper can conform to the publishing format Global Vision Press (GV Press).
