Peer Review Policy
Initial manuscript evaluation
A soft copy of the manuscript to be submitted to the IJREAM two ways, via online submissions and email. Authors, who
want to submit their papers in IJREAM for review, submit their paper through the submission process. Manuscripts are
firstly evaluated by the Editor-in- Chief and Asst. Editors, responsible for the scientific area that the manuscript
deals with. At this stage manuscripts may be rejected without peer review if it is felt that they are not of high enough
priority or not relevant to the Journal. This fast rejection process means that authors are given a quick decision and
do not need to wait for the review process.
Policy of peer review The peer review process for journal is essentially a quality control mechanism. International Journal for Research in Engineering Application & Management (IJREAM) employs double blind reviewing, where both, reviewers and author, remain anonymous throughout the process. The reviewers are not members of the Journal's Editorial Board. All review process are in English Language
Peer Review Process Manuscripts that are not instantly rejected are sent out for peer review, usually to two independent reviewers who are determined by the Co-Editor, responsible for the scientific area that the manuscript deals with. Manuscripts may also be sent out for statistical review. The peer review process takes place entirely on International Journal for Research in Engineering Application & Management (IJREAM) Editorial Management Board, where all reviewers are registered as well. Reviewers are chosen from the Journal's reviewers list or, when necessary, after online search, according to their expertise.
Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript's originality, methodology, contribution to the literature, presentation of results and support for the conclusions, and appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies. They might accept the manuscript, reject the manuscript or might require a minor or major revision for style and/or content. For the publication of papers, two positive reviews are required. In case one reviewer's report is negative while the other is positive, the paper is forwarded to a third reviewer for additional evaluation.
When a revision is recommended by the reviewers, the authors are obliged to proceed making those proposed adjustments to their paper, taking into consideration their specific feedback and suggestions, and then resubmit the revised version of manuscript within a submission timeline. Revised manuscripts resubmitted after this deadline of submission timeline will be considered as a new submission and peer review process will start from the beginning. Reviewers may request more than one revision of a manuscript. Manuscripts which are not accepted for publication are not resent back to their authors.
Final Evaluation After the favourable opinions of reviewers, the paper is accepted for publication by the Editor-in- Chief and the responsible Co-Editor and is placed in an issue sequence.
