Pee Review

Review Policy

All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. Manuscripts that editors evaluate as inappropriate to journal criteria are promptly rejected without external review. Manuscripts evaluated as potentially interesting to our readership are sent to double-blind reviewers. Based on the reviewer’s recommendation, the editors then decide from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted.

The Editor-in-Chief has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published.

Review Process

All articles submitted to CSWR will be reviewed using the double-blind review method. Reviewers are unaware of the identity of the authors, and authors are also unaware of the identity of reviewers (double-blind review method). In general, each article will be reviewed by one to two reviewers.

The response of the reviewers will be the basis for the Editor to conclude
1. Revisions Required
2. Accept Submission
3. Decline Submission

An article was rejected for publication due to various considerations, including:
1. The article does not fit the scope
2. The article does not follow the rules of writing scientific papers / does not follow the author's guidelines 
3. The fundamental methodological errors
4. The author refuses to make suggestions for improvements provided by the reviewer without a logical basis.
5. There are indications of plagiarism of more than 30%
