Peer Review Process

All manuscripts undergo blind peer review. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors as soon as possible. The Editorial Board will re-review manuscripts that are accepted pending revision. Authors whose contributions need revision will be sent reports of the needed modifications and are given enough time to respond to them. The Journal has no tolerance  for plagiarism and the journal uses plagiarism detectors. When plagiarism is detected and confirmed, the article is immediately rejected and other porcedures may be taken against the concerned author.

Publication Fee

While the traditional model relies on restricting access to published research in order to recoup the costs of the publication process, the open access publishing model treats publication as the last phase of the research process. Open access publishing proposes a relatively new model for scholarly journal publishing that provides immediate, worldwide, barrier-free access to the full-text of all published articles. Open access allows all interested readers to view, download, print, and redistribute any article without a subscription, enabling far greater distribution of an author's work than the traditional subscription-based publishing model. Many authors in a variety of fields have begun to realize the benefits that open access publishing can provide in terms of increasing the impact of their work. In an open access model, the publication costs of an article are paid by the authors, or by their supporting institution. In addition, authors who publish in our open access journal retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a “Creative Commons Attribution License,” enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. The research articles and book reviews' processing and publication fee is 150 US Dollars. The authors that need fast reviews can follow the Fast Track Review System and pay extra 50 USD for each paper. In this case, they can get the feedback of peer-review within one week after which an official letter of acceptance is delivered. A certificate of publication is also delivered after the publication of the article.
