Peer Review Process

Peer-reviews will be conducted anonymously by two reviewers.

We seek to ensure that the topics covered in the submission relate to the specialist area of at least one of the reviewers.

Reviewers will be asked to consider whether or not the submission is suitable for the JIME audience. Before submitting their paper authors should consider whether it could be made more understandable to an international and/or non-specialist readership.

We see to provide authors with constructive, developmental reviews that will help them to produce publishable submissions, in future submissions if not the current one.

Reviewers will make one of four recommendations:

  • Accept submission: no revisions are required other than those that would normally be carried out during the copy-editing/proof-reading process.
  • Revisions required: the submission would be acceptable for publication if minor revisions were made as outlined in your reviewers comments. The editorial team will be responsible for checking that the revisions have been completed satisfactorily.
  • Resubmit for review: the submission is relevant for the JIME audience and has the potential to be of publishable quality. It requires major revisions and should be resubmitted for review.
  • Decline submission: the submission is unfortunately not relevant for the JIME audience.

Following publication

The final publication will be freely accessible on the JIME site.
