Peer Review Policy

 

Manuscript Publication in Ta’dib is subordinate exclusively on logical legitimacy and coherence as judged by our editors and/or peer reviewers, who will too evaluate whether the manuscript is comprehensible and whether the work speaks to a valuable commitment to the focus and scope of the journal. Ta’dib recognized the exertion and recommendations made by its reviewers.

Initial review of manuscripts
The Editor will firstly review all manuscripts submitted in Ta’dib Journal. Eventhough it is uncommon, however it is totally attainable for a remarkable manuscript to be accepted immediately without any revision. Those rejected manuscripts at this stage have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the focus and scope of Ta’dib. Those that meet the least criteria are passed on to reviewers for review session.

Type of peer review
Review process employs a double blind review, which means that both reviewer(s) and/ or author (s) identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa.

Review reports
Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Is original by stating the objectives and gap clearly
  • Is methodologically sound
  • Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
  • Has results/findings which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
  • Correctly references previous relevant work

Decision
Reviewers are not expected to correct or copyedit manuscripts. Language correction is not part of the peer review process. Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. Editor’s decision is final.
