Peer Review Process

The JSET adopts the double-blind review process wherein the reviewer and the author do not know each other's identity. The management ensures that the referees are qualified, can perform impartial review, and have expertise on the field of the paper under review. Three referees are invited for each research paper. Once a referee accepts the invitation as peer reviewer, it is understood that the paper will be kept confidential and will not be shared with the referee's colleagues. Within a specified time frame (not more than 4 weeks), the referees provide feedback through the online journal system of the publication. The journal management then evaluates the referees' comments before notifying the decision or referees' comments back to the authors.

A paper is accepted when it is favorably endorsed for publication by at least two referees, the instructions for revision are substantially complied, and the manuscript passes grammarly and plagiarism detection test with a score of at least 90% for originality and at least 80% for grammar issues. Otherwise, the manuscript is rejected.

Authors are advised to use licensed software for plagiarism detection and to perform spelling and grammar checks prior to paper submission.
