Peer Review Process

Authors must submit manuscript through the system for being considered published in Journal of Engineering Researcher and Lecturer. For being published, the manuscript must go through a peer review process (blind-reviewing process). We only publish articles that have been reviewed and approved by highly qualified researchers with expertise in a field appropriate (at least two reviewers per article).

The steps for the reviewing process are in the following figure.

The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions:

  • Accept without any changes (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper in its original form.
  • Accept with minor revisions (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections.
  • Accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors.
  • Revise and resubmit (conditional rejection): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision-making after the authors make major changes
  • Reject the paper (outright rejection): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions
