JCLAD follows a double-blind peer review process.

If the manuscripts meet the criteria given in the column to the left, they are forwarded to three reviewers simultaneously. The reviewers are kindly asked to notify the editor about whether they are going to undertake the review or not within 5 days. If a reviewer does not notify the editor within 5 days, the request is cancelled and the manuscript is forwarded to a new reviewer.

Our experience revealed that a review process is not completed within less than three months.



HOW TO FOLLOW the process of publication?

Once the editor receives a submission, he notifies the authors about the reception and any changes in the status of the manuscript (forwarding to the reviewers, receiving a report from a reviever, suggestions by the reviewers etc.).

Authors may inquire the status of their manuscript by sending an e-mail to the editor when they think the process is taking longer than they expect.





If at least two of the three reviewers suggest that the manuscript be published, the editor takes the manuscript into consideration for possible publication and forwards it to Editing stage.
