Peer review process
JSSN is a peer reviewed journal. Our aim is to provide all authors with a supportive, efficient, productive and quick editorial process.
Peer review process is double blind. Manuscript is sent to atleast two reviewers. Once we get comments from the reviwers we send the feedbacks to the authors. It usually takes 4 weeks to a maximum of 3 months for the peer review process to complete. Authors are requested to answer the reviwers comments and queries.
Submitted manuscript will be first accessed for scope of journal, completeness, language, ethical and legal issues. If found appropriate for consideration it will be sent for external peer review. The submitted articles are sent for online peer review through the OJS.
Two independent external expert reviewers will review the manuscript individually for scientific and technical basis of the work.
Based upon the reviews received from the peer reviewers the paper may be accepted without changes, accepted with minor or major revisions or rejected with or without possibility of resubmission. However, independent from the comment received from peer reviewer final decision regarding the acceptance and rejection will be made by editorial board.
