Peer Reviewed Process


IJSMER follows a quick evaluation method in order to substantially reduce the time to publication. Submit the original article without any plagiarism with copyright material. After initial evaluation, the manuscripts are sent to two reviewers which are determined by editor and / or editorial board. If necessary the number of reviewers can be increased by editor or editorial board. The reviewers are chosen from referee board according to their expertise. The submitted papers will be blind reviewed by two experts out of whom one expert will be an international expert. One positive report from the reviewers is necessary.

Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript originality, methodology, and contribution to the literature, presentation of results and support for the conclusions and future work as well as appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies. Reviewers might accept the manuscript, reject the manuscript or might require a revision for style and / or content. Reviewers will return the review comments within 3 days after receiving the paper. The final decision for each submission will be made once the review report is received by Editor-in-Chief.

Revised manuscripts returned after one month will be considered as a new submissions and peer review process is started from the beginning.
