Peer Review Process

 After a paper is submitted to JIPE, the editor/publishing board first establishes if it is within the journal's domain of interests and meets the journal's requirements for style and quality.

  1. If the paper meets the standard and the concept of the journal, it is sent to reviewers. JIPE uses a double-blind review. Papers which are within the journal's domain but do not meet its requirements for style or quality, may be returned to the author for revision.

  2. Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection of the article about three months after submission of the manuscript.

  3. The reviewed papers are returned to the authors with reviewers’ feedback and suggestions for improvement or an indication of the reasons for a rejection.

  4. The decision regarding publication is made by the editor after considering the reviewers’ recommendations. The editorial board is under no obligation to provide justification for its decision.

  5. The text of the paper should be edited in accordance with the Submission Guidelines.
