Peer Reviewers Process
In the reviewing process, there are at least two reviewers for each manuscript in the related topic. In addition, the author(s) can also propose the candidate of reviewers. Judgment from the first reviewer will be the main priority for an editor to make a decision if there are only two reviewers. In the case of three reviewers, a decision will be made by at least two reviewers. Three weeks will be needed for a reviewer to complete one round of reviewing process.
Generally, the candidate of reviewers will be chosen based on their reputation in the international publication number and quality. Next step, The Editor sends the invitation letter for each candidate of the reviewer. After the candidate of a reviewer is informed of their availabilities for reviewing process, the Editor creates an account for each reviewer and then sends manuscript by OJS.
All reviewing processes are in double-blind review and managed by the editor in the OJS.
