Peer Review Process
Peer review is the method used to evaluate the quality of a manuscript earlier than it is published online. It plays a vital role in academic publishing by the desirable quality of which a manuscript is checked, revised, and edited for publication, proceeding on this track with the guidelines and rules of COPE.
However, there are different types of peer review processes, Acquire is following the double-blind peer-review process which does not reveal the identity of both the author and the reviewer.
As the journal adopts a double-blind review process which is closely examined by the editors and editorial team.
Editors undertake an editorial review to evaluate the quality and type of manuscript prior to processing it to the review process.
Manuscripts that do not meet the required criteria or the scientific standards will not be considered for the review process.
We publish only high-quality articles in the relevant journals.
Therefore, validating the manuscript prior to publication online keeping it in front of the readers is essential.
This is the major rationale why the ‘Peer review process’ plays such a noteworthy task.
It is done to enhance the quality and to publish the most excellent.
Just around the corner into by what means we conduct the peer-review process:
Acquire peer review process commence with an author submitting a well-written manuscript along with all required materials,
including copyright form, and separate cover letter.
The submitted manuscript immediately goes to the Editorial Managing Team. This considers as preliminary screening where strict quality checking is performed.
The Editorial Team verifies the basic quality of the manuscript like plagiarism or duplicity or any legal hazards thoroughly and sufficient merit.
In case the manuscript does not meet the quality or it has any other issues like copying, biases, or legal hazards it will end up on the rejection list.
The author will be acknowledged promptly if their manuscript is rejected at this phase.
After initial approval by the editorial managing team, the manuscript has paved the way for a successive round for additional analysis.
In this stage, an individual editor will be assigned from the editorial board of the respective journal or is assigned to two or three reviewers who are experts within the scope of the article;
the editor/reviewer is responsible for the management of the complete peer-review process.
On acceptance by the editor/reviewers.
The accepted editor/reviewers will review the entire manuscript and will submit their critical review comments within the time period agreed.
The reviewer after rigorous analysis of the manuscript can reject/suggest major or minor corrections/accept the article without any further review stating the appropriate reasons for every decision made.
The reviewed manuscript comes back to the editor to scrutinize the same. After the comments of the reviewers, the editor holds the authority to make a decision on the status of the manuscript.
The same editor's decision is addressed to the author with valid comments.
The author will be given 14 days to revise according to the review comments and submit the revised manuscript for further processing.
Once the manuscript receives acceptance from the editor, the editorial managing team will proofread the manuscript for the last time and it will be published online in the respective journal.
