Submitted articles are primarily evaluated by the journal technical editor for any methodological flaws, format, and compliance with the Journal’s instructions and plagiarism policy. Once they pass the technical check stage, the editor-in-chief with the help of editorial board members will check the quality of the paper and decide whether it is eligible for peer-review/rejection or revision. Then, a submission code will be allocated based on which all future contacts will take place.
Through a single-blind review, the articles will be reviewed by at least two external (peer) reviewers. Their comments will be passed to the authors and their responses to the comments along with the reviewers’ comments will then be evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief and a final reviewer who can also be a member of the Editorial Board.
The final review process will be discussed in regular editorial board sessions and on the basis of the comments and the Journal’s standards. The Editor-in-Chief and editorial board members will decide which articles should be published. It should be noted that articles submitted by the editorial board members of JREE will also be subjected to peer-review.
The detailed peer review process of Journal of Renewable Energy and Environment (JREE) is based on the following Flow Diagram.
