Review Process

 | Post date: 2017/02/5 | 


Peer review process flowchart in JNFS is shown in the following. Manuscripts are sent sequentially to the executor Manager. Executor Manager initially evaluates the manuscript and sends it back to the corresponding author or forwards it to the editor-in-chief. After initial evaluation, the manuscript is sent to an expert for plagiarism evaluation. Editor-in-chief solicits reviewers (typically two external reviews) to review the manuscript. The reviewers’ evaluations are compiled by the editor-in-chief and sent to the corresponding author. Decision on acceptance/ rejection is made usually within six weeks after manuscript reception. The Editor-in-chief informs authors whether the text should be revised or is rejected. Minor revisions are expected to be returned within four weeks of decision; major revisions within three months. Manuscripts not revised within these time periods are subject to withdrawal from consideration for publication unless the authors can provide extenuating circumstances. The final decision on manuscript's reconsideration will be made by Editor-in-chief. However, if authors dispute a decision and document good reasons that why a manuscript should be reconsidered, there will be a rebuttal process. In this case, authors should sent their documents to the editor-in- chief.
