Peer Review Process

The suitability of manuscripts for publication International Journal on Research in STEM Education (IJRSE) is judged by peer reviewers and editorial board. All the review processes are conducted in a double-blind review where both authors and reviewers' identities remain anonymous. Editor in Chief handles all correspondence with the author and makes the final decision as to whether the paper is recommended for acceptance, rejection, or needs to be returned to the author for revision.

The journal manager will check the similarity score of the papers using Turnitin tools. IJRSE apply minimum standard of similarity score of manuscript under 20%. If the manuscript performs above 20%, article should be revised or rejected. The Editor in Chief and Editorial Board will evaluate the submitted papers on the pre-qualification step for the suitability of further review process. The manuscripts will be evaluated by qualified peer reviewers selected by the Editor in Chief. The peer reviewers should examine the manuscript and return it with their recommendation to the Editor in Chief as soon as possible, usually within 3 weeks. The Editor in Chief decides the acceptance or rejection of the paper.

Papers needing revision will be returned to the authors, and the author must return the revised manuscript to the Editor in Chief via OJS of International Journal on Research in STEM Education (IJRSE). The editor in Chief sends the revised manuscript to the Editorial Board to check whether the manuscript is revised as suggested by peer reviewers. Editorial Board could give a recommendation to Editor in Chief that the manuscript should return to authors, accept, or reject within 1-2 week. Editor in Chief would send an acceptance letter announcing the publication issue attached with manuscript reprint to authors.
