Peer Review Process
The aim of the peer review process is to ensure that high-quality and original scientific studies are published. All articles published in the Journal of Economics and Business Issue (JEBI) are peer-reviewed and all manuscripts submitted follow the procedure outlined below.
Initial Manuscript Evaluation
All manuscripts submitted for publication consideration in JEBI are first evaluated by the Editor and Editorial Board. Manuscripts which fall outside the aims and scope of the journal or fail to meet the requirements of a scientific study will either be rejected at this initial point or returned to the author for revision. Manuscripts are never accepted by the editor without a referee report, at this early stage.
Manuscripts that pass the initial evaluation stage are subjected to a similarity/plagiarism scanning by using a plagiarism screening program, or the authors are asked to conduct this plagiarism scanning and forward the plagiarism report to JEBI. Any manuscript with a similarity percentage (excluding references) greater than 20% will be rejected. Manuscripts that pass the initial evaluation stage and have a similarity rate below 20% proceed to the referee process (preferred rate is below 15% excluding quotes, bibliography, abstract and method). The plagiarism report is not sent to the referees unless the referees request it.
Policy of Peer Review
JEBI employs double-blind reviewing, where both the referee and author remain anonymous throughout the process.
Manuscripts are sent to at least two referees assigned by the editor and/or editorial board. If necessary, the number of referees may be increased by the Editor or Editorial Board. The referees are chosen from the referee board according to their expertise.
Referees are asked to evaluate the manuscript’s originality, methodology, contribution to the literature, presentation of results and support for the conclusions, and appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies. Referees may either recommend accepting the manuscript, rejecting the manuscript or may require a revision for style and/or content. For a manuscript to be accepted for publication, two positive reports are required. In case one referee report is negative while the other is positive, the manuscript is forwarded to a third referee for additional evaluation.
When a revision is required by the referee or referees, the author(s) are to consider the criticisms and suggestions offered by the referees, and a revised manuscript should be submitted within 60 days. If the revised manuscript is not submitted in this time frame, the manuscript will be removed from the referee evaluation process. Referees may request more than one revision of a manuscript.
After favorable opinions of referees, the Editor or Editorial Board makes the final publication decision. Manuscripts accepted for publication by the Editor/Editorial Board are placed in an issue sequence. Manuscripts that are rejected are not returned to the authors.
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with the author instructions.
