Peer Review Process

The manuscripts submitted to Journal of Science Technology (JoSTec) will be evaluated through 2 review stages by an editor and reviewers.

The first is the pre-review by the journal editor to evaluate the conformity of the manuscript with the focus and scope of the journal and the specific author guidelines. JoSTec uses Google Scholar and Turnitin software for plagiarism and similarity checking during this stage. Duration of evaluation between 1-3 weeks.

Each manuscript that passes the first stage will be substantially single-blind reviewed by at least two reviewers. Duration of evaluation between 3-16 weeks after review assignment. The reviewer may request a re-review after the author revises his/her article. The editor will send the reviewers' comments to the corresponding author to take the necessary revisions.

The Editor decides whether the revised manuscript can be published by considering recommendations from reviewers. All pre-published articles must be free from plagiarism content. The Editor will check the similarity of articles in this journal using Turnitin software. All accepted articles will be first published in the In-Press issue for faster indexing. JoSTec also publishes the camera-ready articles in the In-Progress issue before regular issue publication.
