Peer Review Process
The article submitted to Arthaniti Studies will be reviewed by at least one reviewer and one peer-reviewer.
The decision made for the article is the result of the Editorial Board’s agreement based on the suggestions proposed by the reviewer(s) and peer-reviewer(s).
In order to sustain the peer review system, authors have an obligation to participate in peer review process to evaluate manuscripts from others. When appropriate, authors are obliged to provide retractions and/or corrections of errors to the editors and the Publisher. All papers submitted to Arthaniti Studies will be peer reviewed for at least one round. Arthaniti Studies adopts a one-blinded review policy: authors are blind to reviewers, but reviewers are not blind to authors. The peer review process is conducted in the online manuscript submission and peer-review system. After a manuscript is submitted to the online system, the system immediately notifies the editorial office. After passing an initial quality check by the editorial office, the manuscript will be assigned to one or more reviewers. After receiving reviewers’ comments, the editorial team member makes a decision. Because reviewers sometimes do not agree with each other, the final decision sent to the author may not exactly reflect recommendations by any of the reviewers.
The decision after each round of peer review may be one of the following:
- Accept without any further changes.
- Accept with minor revision. The revised manuscript may or may not be sent to the reviewers for another round of comments.
- Decline with resubmission encouraged. Major changes are necessary for resubmission. The revised manuscript will be peer reviewed for another round. Typically, it will be sent to the original reviewers.
- Decline without encouraging resubmission. The manuscript is rejected for publication by management Arthaniti Studies
These processes take a month for a maximum time.
Plagiarism scanning will be conducted with Turnitin.
