Peer Review Process

International Journal of Business, Law, and Education applies a blind peer review process. In conducting a review, at least three experts are assigned according to their fields. Editor-in-Chief or editor, by the field of research (the list is on the Editorial Board page), provides acceptance/rejection decisions. A summary of the editorial process is given in the flowchart below.

    After submission, this check is initially to assess: Suitability of the manuscript to the journal scope and templates; Qualification and background of authors; and Reject poor manuscripts.
  2. Blind peer-review
    The process is blind peer review, To assist academic editors, the International Journal of Business, Law, and Education staff handles all communication with authors, reviewers, and the external editor. An editor will check the status of manuscripts and the identity of reviewers at any time. In conducting a review, at least three experts are assigned according to their fields. Reviewers are given two weeks to write their reviews. Reviewers are asked to provide their report within one week to review a revised manuscript. In both cases, extensions can be granted on request.
  3. Editor Decision
    An editor makes good decisions on manuscripts after peer review (the list is on the Editorial Boardpage). The editor can select from: accept, reject, ask the author for revision, and ask for an additional reviewer. If there is any suspicion that a paper may contain plagiarism, the editorial office will check using the Turnitin software
