Peer Review Process

The submitted manuscript is first reviewed by an editor. It will be evaluated in the office, whether it is suitable for the Jisip Unja focus and scope or has a major methodological flaw and similiarity score by using Turnitin.

The manuscript will be at least two anonymous reviewers (Double Blind Review). Reviewers' comments are then sent to the relevant author for necessary actions and responses.

The suggested decision will be evaluated in an editorial board meeting. Afterwards, the editor will send the final decision to the corresponding author.

Review Outcomes

Utilizing feedback from the peer review process, the Editor will make a final publication decision. The review process will take approximately 4 to 12 weeks. Decisions categories include:

  • Reject - Rejected manuscripts will not be published and authors will not have the opportunity to resubmit a revised version of the manuscript to Jisip Unja.
  • Resubmit for Review - The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. However, It will require a second round of review.
  • Revisions required - Manuscripts receiving an accept-pending revisions decision will be published in Jisip Unja under the conditions that minor / major modifications are made. Revisions will be reviewed by an editor to ensure necessary updates are made prior to publications.
  • Accept - Accepted manuscripts will be published in the current form with no further modifications required.
