Peer Review Process

JISDeP is an open-access journal. All of the research articles submitted in this journal will be provided in an online version and can be free fully downloaded. All submitted manuscripts are subject to stages of the editorial process including a double-blind review process. Once a manuscript is submitted to the journal through an online submission process, an assigned editor will do an initial screening to examine the eligibility of the manuscript for a full review process (for example, whether it is in compliance with the focus and scope of the journal). If it passes the initial screening, the manuscript will be blindly reviewed by two reviewers, and a third reviewer may be added in case the two reviewers have differing opinions on the review results. Considering review reports by the peer reviewers, the journal’s editorial board will finally deliberate on the final decision, whether to accept or reject the manuscript.
