INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF ADVANCEMENTS IN INFORMATION SCIENCES AND TECHNOLOGIES
Double Blind Peer-Review Process
International Journal of Advancements in Information Sciences and Technologies (IJAIST) is a double blind peer-reviewed international academic journal.
A minimum of double peer reviewers, who are recognized specialists specific to the topic and area of the submissions, are appointed by the editors. All peer review reports are electronically and anonymously delivered to the contributors. Reviewers' names are withheld by the journal to protect the integrity of the triple-blind peer review process. Upon request, written reports can be provided to the reviewer that attests to their contribution.
All published authors accept to act as reviewers for future issues. Peer review is the founding mechanism of academic endeavor. Peer review helps editors make decisions in dialogue with authors. Authors gain important insights about their works and find the chance to develop their work by dint of criticism ensconced in the reviewers’ reports and comments.
The editors and the publisher formally assure that all submitted manuscripts being considered for publication undergo peer-review by at least three reviewers who are specialists in their field. After the completion of the review process, the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for deciding which of the manuscripts submitted to the journal will be published, based on the validation of the work in question, its importance to researchers and readers, the reviewers’ comments, and such legal requirements as are currently in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism. The Editor-in Chief may get advice from other editors or reviewers in making this decision.
