Peer Review Process
The editor/managing editors determine whether the received manuscript fits the journal’s focus, scope and general framework. Any manuscript out of the journal’s scope is rejected at the desk review. The manuscript which is good but not in the QJMSS framework is requested to be sent again under the Journal’s framework and guidelines. The decision that the manuscript does not fit is provided to the authors along with an explanation and (optionally) a recommendation on alternative publication options. The selected manuscripts that clear the screening are sent to at least two experts for peer review. At least one reviewer is from outside the members listed in the editorial board.
QJMSS uses the double-blind system for peer review. Both reviewers and authors’ identity remains anonymous. QJMSS provides recommendations to the journal editors as to whether the manuscript should be rejected or accepted (with or without revisions). QJMSS considers all the feedback from peer reviews and makes an informed decision to accept or reject the manuscript.
QJMSS provides automated mail to the corresponding author regarding acknowledgement of their paper. Then it takes 7 days for the initial decision (editorial decisions whether to send the paper for review). The peer review process lasts 21 days to 45 days depending upon the reviewers’ time schedules. Authors’ are provided maximum 15 days to resubmit their manuscript by incorporating all the comments provided by the reviewers. Then after, respective reviewers are provided with the modified manuscript for an average of 7 days for final decision. The average time for the article review is 3 months from submission to acceptance. All the accepted articles will first be published in print and then immediately goes to online publication.
Financial and other resources are provided by Quest International College.
