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.
- 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.
- Authors will be notified of acceptance or rejection of the article about three months after submission of the manuscript.
- The reviewed papers are returned to the authors with reviewers’ feedback and suggestions for improvement or an indication of the reasons for a rejection.
- 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.
- The text of the paper should be edited in accordance with the Submission Guidelines.
