Peer-Review Process

JBSS follows double blind peer-review process. The manuscript is submitted for review to minimum two experts from the panel of peer review and editorial board. A key convention in the publication of research is the peer review process, in which the quality and potential contribution of each manuscript is evaluated by one's peers in the scientific community. Like other scientific journals, APA journals utilize a peer review process to guide manuscript selection and publication decisions. Toward the goal of impartiality, the majority of APA journals follow a masked review policy, in which authors' and reviewers' identities are concealed from each other. Reviewer identities are never shared unless the reviewer requests to sign their review.

The action editor scans the paper to gain an independent view of the work. This "quick read" provides a foundation for the more thorough reading that follows it by no means determines the final decision, but does parallel how authors can expect many reviewers (and readers) to approach their papers. First, the editor scans the paper from beginning to end for obvious flaws in the research substance and writing style. If problems show on the surface, a deeper reading is likely to uncover other matters needing attention. After this initial examination of the manuscript, the action editors, as well as any peer reviewers, will follow these general guidelines; read the abstract whether it is conclusion –oriented abstracts or not, examine the full manuscript, scan the paper headings, check for plagiarism, scan the references, scan the tables and figures and so other basis developed on expertise of the reviewer.
