Peer Review Process

Each article is reviewed by at least one reviewer who are chosen from our panel of experts in their respective fields.The review process is at least 6 months. Each submission will go through the following review process:

  • Technical  and content screening
  • Double blind review
  • Revision by author/s if required
  • Editorial screening/decision

 

After the article has been reviewed, an official review is created. Reviewers will then make proper recommendations regarding the publication of the article based on the following categories:

  • Accept submission: The article is accepted for publication by the JEHS. Minimal revisions are required by the author to ensure that the article is ready for publication.
  • Revisions required: The article is accepted for publication by the JEHS, but the author must first address several issues regarding its content and / or structure before it is ready for publication.
  • Resubmit for review: The article needs substantial revision of its content and / or its structure and the article cannot be accepted for publication presently. However, because the article shows promise, the author should revise the entry and then resubmit it to the JEHS for consideration.*
  • Decline submission: The article is not accepted for publication. The article’s purpose, content, and/ or use of research are not appropriate for the JEHS.

 

The reviewers’ decision, along with copies of their reviews, will be forwarded to the author as quickly as possible. We cannot guarantee how long the review process takes, but our reviewers and editors are committed to ensuring that the process goes as swiftly as possible.

 

*If an author is invited to resubmit an article for review, we ask that the author resubmits their piece within 3 months. We also ask that they include the original version of the article and the comments that were made regarding the revisions. Our policy is to make a final publication decision after one revision (of course, further work may also be requested to resolve any remaining issues).
