Peer Review Process


All manuscripts submitted to the Journal will undergo a preliminary evaluation by the Editor-in-Chief to determine the suitability of the submission based on the aims, scope, and adherence to the Journal format.

Upon passing the preliminary evaluation, the manuscript will then go to an Academic Editor who will then manage the peer review process. The manuscript will undergo a double-blind peer review by two to three experts in a particular field. The reviewers will evaluate the manuscript based on the relevance of the topic, timeliness, and technical quality.

The reviewers are prohibited to show the manuscript under review to another person nor use the information contained therein. To ensure unbiased review, manuscripts submitted by BFAR or NFRDI researchers shall be reviewed by experts from outside their respective institutions (see Conflict of Interest under Publication Policy).
