Before going through the review process and publishing, all manuscripts will be checked that they are free from plagiarism by using Turnitin. If there are indications of plagiarism of more than 50%, the manuscript will instantly be rejected. If there is an indication of plagiarism between 30% - 50%, we will send the manuscript back to the author to be revised for the plagiarised content.     

All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. Those manuscripts editors evaluate as inappropriate to journal criteria are rejected promptly 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 SBAMER 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
