The review team of a journal decides whether the submitted article is good enough for publication or not. So the list of such websites that have peer-reviewed teams for scrutiny of a research paper is highly desired. Websites for peer reviewed articles are considered as good international journals that can follow the ethics of publication, as some of the journals accept all sets of articles for publication just for money. Peer revied journals are also of three type:
- Single Blind
- Double Blind
- Open Peer Review
Websites having single blind strategy for paper review are considered as journals that share author details to the reviewer but the author is not aware of reviewer information like name, organization, department, etc.
Similarly, in case of double-blind strategy journals hide information of both parties author and reviewer for each other. This kind of work is mostly adopted by big journals, but in review, some of reviewers ask questions by email that opens his identity to the author.
The collaborative peer review process has more than one reviewer to comment on the submitted paper. It is desired by the editor that all of the reviewer suggestions should be positive for publication. This strategy is the time taken to process and review time increases if the reviewer takes a long time to respond the paper.
The Open Peer review method is vice versa of the double blind method. In this author and reviewer details are shared to each other for the paper justification. This process is fast for publication as some time author briefs its work directly and the reviewer asks its queries directly. This kind of direct communication reduces communication cost (time) of review process.
Many good websites openly specify their peer review process to the visitor of the site, as this increases the author’s understanding of how long the paper takes to publish or review period. Sometimes it is ask by the authors to specify the time duration of reviewing a paper, few of journals specify that they publish paper in one day they do not have any team of review paper content. Publishing in such journals is useless. This article helps scholars to filter journals on the following points and decide that journal has a review committee or not.
- Check editor details
- Check editorial board member details
- Does the journal has a similar paper set as per the domain of journal if es then its ok otherwise journal is misleading the publication ethics.
- Check contact details of the journal as many of journal hide all such information.
In case of scholar who have very less experience they can consult there mentor about the journal and submit paper as per his / her suggestion only.
