General Peer-Review Process

In summary, all manuscripts submitted for publication in our journals undergo strict and comprehensive peer-review. The review process is single blind. If the manuscript is deemed appropriate for full review, it will be reviewed by a minimum of two external reviewers.

The submitted manuscripts shall be subjected to a thorough initial check, including a Plagiarism Check conducted within the Editorial Office. Leading the peer-review process shall be an Editor – usually the Editor-in-Chief or a board member of the journal, working alongside the Editorial Office. It starts with a Preliminary Review by the Editor (which is completed no later than 10 days after the manuscript submission).

Upon acceptance for full review, the Editor will collect a minimum of two review comments and prepare a decision letter based on the comments of the reviewers (to be completed within four weeks after the preliminary review). The decision letter is then forwarded to the Corresponding Author requesting an appropriate manuscript revision (to be peer-reviewed again, if necessary). The author shall subsequently receive a request to format the manuscript according to SCIRP’s template before proceeding into the typesetting and proofreading stage with the publisher. Prior to the online publication of the manuscript, the author will receive a PDF copy produced by SCIRP for checking.
