Peer Review Policy

We are committed to the prompt evaluation and publication of fully accepted papers in the International Journal of Innovative Research and Scientific Studies (Online ISSN: 2617-6548). To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous process. Characteristics of the peer review process are as follows:

  • Manuscripts with contents outside the scope of the journal will not be considered for review.
  • Submissions usually will be reviewed by two experts suggested by the editorial board.
  • In addition, Academic Editors will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed. Authors will be informed when Academic Editors decide further review is required.
  • All publication decisions are made by the journal's Editors-in-Chief on the basis of the reviewers' reports. Authors will be notified promptly if their papers are not accepted.
  • All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents. We also expect our Board of Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as confidential material.
  • Editors and reviewers involved in the review process should disclose conflicts of interest resulting from direct competitive, collaborative, or other relationships with any of the authors, and remove themselves from cases in which such conflicts preclude an objective evaluation. Privileged information or ideas that are obtained through peer review must not be used for competitive gain.
  • Our peer review process is confidential and identities of reviewers cannot be revealed.

Note:

The International Journal of Innovative Research and Scientific Studies is a member of CrossCheck. All manuscripts submitted will be checked for plagiarism (copying text or results from other sources) and self-plagiarism (duplicating substantial parts of authors' own published work without giving the appropriate references) using the CrossCheck database. Plagiarism is not tolerated.
