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 the initial evaluation, the manuscript is sent to an expert for plagiarism evaluation. Later, the manuscript is blinded by eliminating the authors’ name, address, affiliation, and study location. After this stage, the manuscript is sent to reviewers (typically two external reviews) selected by the editor-in-chief to review the manuscript. In other words, the peer-review process of the manuscripts is double-blinded; reviewers and authors are blind about each other. 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 and major revisions are expected to be returned within four weeks and three months, respectively. 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 the Editor-in-chief. However, if authors dispute a decision and document good reasons about reconsideration over a manuscript, there will be a rebuttal process. In this case, authors should send their documents to the Editor-in- chief.
