Review Process
     All papers of the journal are peer reviewed by two independent reviewers. Acceptance is granted when both reviewers' recommendations are positive. Journal issues will be made available online for download (Section: Archives).
  1. Initial review: The Editor-in-Chief evaluates each paper to determine if its topic and content is suitable for consideration by the IJSRNSC. Papers that do not meet minimum criteria are returned to the authors within one day of receipt. This is in the best interest of the authors who could then decide to either correct the problems or to submit the paper to a more appropriate venue, avoiding delays from a lengthy review process that would nonetheless lead to rejection.
  2. Peer review: Papers that pass the initial review are assigned to an Associate Editor, who selects several referees based on their expertise in that particular field. Each paper is reviewed by at least two referees under a double-blind peer review process, where both the referees and the authors are kept anonymous. Referees are asked to evaluate the paper based on its originality, soundness of methodology, impact to design research, and relevance to design practices. To facilitate timely publication, referees are asked to complete their reviews within 1-2 weeks. After collecting the referees' reports, the Associate Editor makes a recommendation on the acceptability of the paper to the Editor-in-Chief.
  3. Peer review purpose:
    • To help select quality articles for publication (filter out studies/research that have been poorly conceived, designed, and executed) with the selection being based upon:
      • The scientific merit and validity of the article and its methodology
      • The relevance of the article – select work that will be the greatest interest to the readership
    • To improve the manuscript whenever possible.
    • To check against malfeasance/dishonesty within the scientific and research community.
    • Provide editors with evidence to make judgments as to whether articles meet the selection criteria for their particular publication.
  4. Recommendation: Based on the referees' comments and the Associate Editor's recommendation, the Editor-in-Chief makes a final decision on the acceptability of the paper and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees' reports. The final decision can be "Accept Submission", "Revisions Required", "Resubmit for Review", "Resubmit Elsewhere", or "Decline Submission." A revised paper should be re-submitted within 10 days of the decision. It will usually be returned to the original referees for evaluation.

    The main functions of the peer review process are to help maintain standards and ensure that the reporting of research work is as truthful and accurate as possible.
