Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to the IJEP are reviewed critically with criteria explicitly available to all prospective authors. It is the responsibility of the Editor-in-Chief, the Associate Editors, and the Editorial Board to determine manuscripts‘suitability for publication. After receipt of a manuscript by the Editor, it is sent to an Associate Editor. The manuscript is peer-reviewed by at least two members of the journal Peer-Review Board as well as the Editor-in-Chief. The Peer-Review Board member then makes a definitive recommendation for acceptance or revision based on the merit and quality of the article. All articles meeting the review criteria will be published. It is the responsibility of the editors to communicate to authors in a manner that revisions will be conducive to publication.

All Board members and referees who review a manuscript remain unknown to the authors, but not the criteria.
