Peer Review Process

Step 1: Pre-Screening and Plagiarism Check

The editorial management team will check a received manuscript to see if it fits the journal's scope and strictly follows the author's guidelines and stylesheet. Submissions that do not fit these parameters will be rejected. Articles that have already been published in full or in part on other publications or websites will not be taken into consideration. If the received manuscript fits the journal's scope and strictly follows the author's guidelines and stylesheet, its originality will be checked. Plagiarism includes self-plagiarism as well. The manuscript's suitability for the journal, originality, and interest level will be further sent to peer reviewers. Otherwise, the manuscript will be rejected without further evaluation.

Step 2: Peer Review

Manutsat Paritat: Journal of Humanities uses a double-blind peer review process. Both reviewers and authors maintain their anonymity. At least three professionals in the subject areas pertinent to the manuscript's content will assess each submission.

Step 3: Invitation to Reviewers

The editorial management team sends invitations to appropriate reviewers who weigh the offers against their own qualifications, potential conflicts of interest, and availability.

Step 4: Reviews are Conducted

If accepted, the reviewers will have no more than 30 days to review the manuscripts. The reviews are then submitted to the Journal, with a recommendation to (1) accept, (2) reject, or for (3) major revision before they are reconsidered. If the manuscripts are considered to be sent back for (3), the reviewers should expect to receive new versions, unless they have opted out of further participation. However, if the reviewers only request minor changes, follow-up reviews might be done by the editorial management team.

Step 5: Journal Evaluates the Reviews

The editorial management team takes all returned reviews into consideration. If there is a considerable difference in the reviews, the editorial management team may invite an additional reviewer so as to obtain an extra opinion before reaching a decision.

Step 6: Acceptance/Rejection Decision

The average rating given by peer reviewers is used to determine whether to accept a manuscript. Any pertinent reviewer comments are included in the decision email that the editorial management team provides to the author. The manuscript sent for revision will need to be revised based on the reviewers' remarks or recommendations before being resubmitted to the Journal. Revisions that do not follow the author's guidelines as well as the Journal’s stylesheet and comments from reviewers without an adequate/acceptable rationale may be rejected. If the revised manuscripts are accepted, they will be forwarded to production and eventually published.
