Peer review is a procedure in which the authenticity and quality of a paper written by an author or a group will be evaluated by experts in the same field before publication in a scholarly journal. Peer review is essential to maintain the publication standards of academic journals. Scientific journals follow peer review to maintain the integrity and to eliminate the poorly written manuscripts. Many researchers believe that peer review enhances the quality of published papers.
Scientific Archives ensures the quality of publication by following a rigorous peer review process. Articles submitted to any of our journals will be reviewed by two independent reviewers from the same field. However, the final decision on the article will be taken by the Editorial Board Members and the Editor-in-Chief of the respective journal.
Types of Peer Review
Single blind peer review
Scientific Archives follow single blind peer review process to assess the quality of the articles submitted to our journals. In single blind peer review process, the anonymity of the peer reviewers is maintained to obtain impartial decisions. Since the reviewer details are hidden, authors cannot exert any influence on the reviewers in making decision on their papers.
Double-blind review (Optional)
Authors may also choose double blind peer review process for their manuscripts. In this process, both the reviewer and the author are anonymous to each other. Since the author details are kept confidential, reviewers cannot be biased based on an author's country of origin or previous work. This process helps in achieving a fair review where articles quality will be assessed based on the content of the papers, rather than authors reputation or origin.
