Peer Review Process
Mathews Open Access Journals follows double blind peer review process. In this we do not reveal author names, affiliations to the reviewer and vice versa. We adhere to the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), code of conduct, and best practice guidelines (http://publicationethics.org). We strive to ensure that the peer review is fair, unbiased and timely. Decisions to accept or reject a manuscript for publication in the journal are based on the manuscript’s importance, originality, clarity, and the study’s validity and its relevance to remit of the journal. The process also involves strictly no plagiarism or fabrication of the data and parallel submissions.
Being a reviewer you are accountable to take the responsibility of maintaining confidentiality of ideas that have been presented in the papers assigned to review. Focus your evaluation on merits and demerits of the article; assess the correctness, accuracy, clarity, and innovation of the research. Never reveal the assigned paper's results or videos/images or any of the supplementary material to non-reviewers.
The reviewers are given ample time for the review and submission of comments to the editorial office. Reviewers’ evaluations play a major role in our decision as to whether to accept a manuscript for publication.
