Peer Review Process

JETI only accepts manuscripts in English. Manuscripts should follow the style of the journal and are subject to both review and editing. All manuscripts should be uploaded via the online system. All manuscripts submitted to this journal should be original, previously unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere. All manuscripts must be free from plagiarism contents. All submitted manuscripts are read by the editorial staff. All paper submissions then will be refereed in a rigorous double-blind review process by at least 2 international reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation: rejected, major revision, minor revision, or accepted. The review process takes about 4 to 6 months according to the journal workload. The authors can track their manuscripts through this system.
