Peer Review Process

The Editor-in-Chief first evaluate all manuscripts. It is rare, but it is entirely feasible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Reasons for rejection at this stage include insufficient originality and scientific merits, obvious technical flaws, poor writing, inappropriate length, and improper match to the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on for peer review typically by two external experts.

This journal employs single blind review, where the referee remains anonymous throughout the process.

Referees are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer review process, but they may, if they so wish, suggest corrections to the manuscript.

The final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the Editor-in-Chief.

If you are not currently a referee for the journal, but would like to be added to the list of referees for this title, please contact the Editorial Office at editor@jnrt.org.
