Peer Review

The reputation of a journal and the significance of any reviewed publication primarily depends on the quality of the peer review process. Peer review is the process used by scholarly journals to make sure that the articles published meet the standards of the disciplines laid.

At Emres Publishers, we are committed to upholding the highest standards of academic integrity and publication quality. The reputation of our journals and the significance of the publications we review primarily depend on the meticulous peer review process we employ. Peer review serves as the cornerstone of scholarly publishing, ensuring that the articles we publish meet the rigorous standards of their respective disciplines.

Manuscript Submission and Initial Screening: Authors submit their manuscripts to our journals, and the journey toward publication begins. Upon submission, our dedicated editorial office conducts an initial screening of each manuscript. This screening assesses whether the submission aligns with the criteria and guidelines set forth by the journal. If the manuscript does not meet these criteria, the authors receive feedback and are invited to revise and resubmit in accordance with our guidelines.

Double-Blind Peer Review: Manuscripts that successfully pass the initial screening proceed to the heart of our peer review process: the double-blind peer review. In this crucial stage, the identities of both authors and reviewers are kept confidential. The manuscript is sent to an editorial board member who possesses expertise in the subject matter. The editorial board member, in turn, assigns the manuscript to at least two individual experts, known as peer reviewers, who are well-versed in the specific field of study.

Peer Review Evaluation: Our peer reviewers are entrusted with the responsibility of providing a thorough and constructive evaluation of the submitted manuscript. They critically assess the paper, considering its originality, methodology, clarity, and overall contribution to the field. Reviewers employ a ranking system ranging from 1 to 6, with rank 6 indicating a strong recommendation for publication and rank 1 signifying rejection for publication.
Reviewers offer comprehensive feedback and recommendations in their evaluations. If they believe that changes are necessary for the manuscript to meet our publication standards, they provide specific suggestions for improvement. Additionally, reviewers may identify any language-related issues, such as grammar, punctuation, or spelling errors, that require correction.

Editorial Decision The recommendations and comments from our esteemed peer reviewers are vital in shaping the editorial decision. The editor carefully considers these recommendations, alongside an assessment of the manuscript's overall quality and relevance to the journal's scope. Based on this comprehensive evaluation, the editor makes one of the following decisions:

Transparent Feedback: Throughout the peer review process, our aim is to provide transparent and constructive feedback to authors. Reviewer comments are shared with authors, allowing them to understand the strengths and weaknesses of their work. Authors are encouraged to address reviewers' feedback in revisions, ensuring that their research contributes effectively to the scholarly community.
