Peer Review Policy

IJPES will continue to be published online four times a year (January, April, July and October) starting in January 2021. Manuscripts can be submitted in English. All manuscripts submitted for publication will undergo rigorous peer review, based on an initial editor screening (format of the manuscript, originality of the study, language used) and then a double blind review process by at least two anonymous reviewers.

The reviewers are usually chosen from either the Editorial Board, or the Reviewers Panel. Typically, the editor will seek reviewers’ feedback before considering your submission for publication. In that case, the editor will wait until he/she receives all reviewer comments on your submission. The editor will then email you directly with a decision. Editorial Board is the only authority to enable the communication between the author(s) and the manuscript reviewers.
