Peer Review Process

JMNS published the only paper strictly following the guidelines and template for the preparation manuscript. All submitted manuscripts are going through a double-blind peer-review process. Those papers are read by editorial members (upon the field of specialization) and will be screened by Managing Editor to meet the necessary criteria of JMNS publication. Manuscripts will be sent to two reviewers based on their historical experience in reviewing manuscripts or based on their field of specialization. JMNS has reviewing forms in order to keep the same items reviewed by two reviewers. Then the editorial board makes a decision upon the reviewer's comments or advice. Reviewers give their assessment on originality, clarity of presentation, contribution to the field/science, JMNS has four kinds of decisions:

  • Accepted, as it is
  • Accepted by Minor Revisions (let authors revised with stipulated time)
  • Accepted by Major Revisions (let authors revised with stipulated time)
  • Rejected (generally, on grounds of the outside of scope and aim, major technical description problems, lack of clarity of presentation)

For checking Plagiarism, JMNS's board will screen plagiarism using TURNITIN Program. If it is found plagiarism indication (above 30%), the editorial board will reject the manuscript immediately.
