What is Peer Review?
Peer review is a process of self-regulation by a profession or a process of evaluation involving qualified individuals within the relevant field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards, improve performance and provide credibility. In academia, peer review is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability for publication. In the case of blind peer-review, the identity of the authors would not be revealed to the reviewer/referee until the paper is published in the journal.
 
Why Peer Review?
It is difficult for authors and researchers, whether individually or in a team, to spot every mistake or flaw in a complicated piece of work. This is not necessarily a reflection on those concerned, but because with a new and perhaps eclectic subject, an opportunity for improvement may be more obvious to someone with special expertise or who simply looks at it with a fresh eye through a different angle. By reviewing the research of others, experts can identify the possible weaknesses/flaw, thus quality would be improved.
 
AJEEE is devoted to publishing original and high-quality research / technical papers only.

A manuscript, after its submission, is given to the appropriate editor who chooses referee/referees for the paper.  However, if in the judgment of the editors a paper is unsuitable for the Journal, it will be rejected without external review (although, under such a scenario, authors will have the right to appeal). The journal follows a strict policy for peer review, appointing reviewers (excluding members from the Editorial and Advisory Boards of the journal) who are experts in their respective fields. Generally, two reviewers are assigned to each manuscript. In case of any dispute, the opinion of the third reviewer is sought.

 

Reviewer Guideline:

Reviewers are asked to evaluate the following-

  • The originality of the work
  • The correctness of the methodology used
  • Adherence to ethical guidelines as per the ADBU journal policies
  • Whether the results have been presented well and support the conclusions
  • Complete and correct referencing
  • Does the article qualify for publication? (Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.)

Reviewers do not correct the submissions. They simply add comments in the sections which need corrections.
