Peer Review Process

Initial Submission: Authors submit their Book or Book chapter manuscript to the publisher for consideration, indicating the title of their Book or the book title that their Book chapter is intended for.

Editorial Assessment: Upon submission, an academic editor reviews the eBook or eBook chapter proposal to determine its suitability for inclusion. If the proposal is deemed suitable, the manuscript moves on to the next stage. If the proposal is found to have a high level of plagiarism or is deemed unsuitable for publication, it is returned to the author with comments and suggestions for improvement.

Peer Review: The manuscript is then sent out for peer review to external subject experts in the relevant field, who provide feedback on the manuscript’s originality, relevance, methodology, interpretation of results, and overall contribution to the field.

Author Revisions: If the manuscript is accepted with revisions, the author is asked to make the necessary changes in response to the reviewer’s comments and suggestions. The revised manuscript is then reviewed by the academic editor, who determines whether the revisions are adequate and whether the manuscript is ready for the final editorial decision.

Final Editorial Decision: After receiving the reviewer’s reports and reviewing the revised manuscript, the academic editor makes the final decision on whether to accept or reject the manuscript. The academic editor communicates their decision to the author service team, who then inform the author(s) of the decision.

Production: If the manuscript is accepted, it moves on to the production stage for publication. If the manuscript is rejected, the author may revise and resubmit the manuscript for consideration in the future.
