Peer Review Process
Publication of articles in International Journal of Accounting, Management, Economics and Social Sciences (IJAMESC) is dependent solely on scientific validity and coherence as judged by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will also assess whether the writing is comprehensible and whether the work represents a useful contribution to the field. IJAMESC acknowledged the effort and suggestions made by its reviewers.
Initial evaluation of manuscripts
The Editor will first evaluate all manuscripts submitted at a maximum of 4 weeks' time. Although rare, yet it is entirely feasible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the aims and scope of the IJAMESC. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to expert reviewers for review.
Type of peer review
Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two experts who will be asked to assess whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether the manuscript duplicates work that has already been published, and whether the manuscript is clear enough to be published or not. The method used is double blind peer review. Another round of review process will be carried out if the first round is inadequate. The review process can take up to 8 weeks to obtain an article suitable for publication.
Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. The editor’s decision is final.
