Peer Review Process

JKAHS uses a double blind peer-review process to ensure the removal of personal bias.

We have national as well as internal team of peer-reviewers. We allocate two peer-reviewers per article (one national and another international) and on the basis of their comments we, the editorial board decide whether to accept or reject the article for the publication.

Normally, our peer-reviewers take one to two times for the process of peer-review. If some peer-reviewers don’t reply the article within the one week time period, then we remind them to review the article. Still if they don’t reply after the reminder too, we allocate another reviewer for the same article.

On the basis of comments of peer-reviewers, our executive editorial team decide the quality of the article to be published in our journal or not.

Publication Frequency

JKAHS is published three times a year.
