IJMAE follows the “Double-blind Peer-review Policy” which means that the reviewers of the manuscript will not get to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) will not get to know the identity of the reviewer. After submission of a manuscript by the author(s), the Editor-in-Chief checks the initial quality and sends it to at least two reviewers who have specialty in the subject. The reviewers will be informed by an “Invitation Letter to Review” to their emails. Then, they can login to their accounts in online peer review system, by the username and password provided, to observe the manuscript details and the due time to review and decide whether they accept or reject it. By accepting the manuscript to review, they can fill out the evaluation form and submit it to the Editor-in-Chief. According to the evaluations provided by the reviewers, Board of Editors decides whether to accept, reject or revise the manuscript for publication. The final decision along with the reviewers’ reports will be emailed to the reviewers for their records.
