- Initial screening. All submissions are initially screened by the Editor-in-Chief for their conformity to DIKTUM journal scope and basic submission requirements and checked for plagiarism. Manuscripts that fail to abide by our ethical standards are immediately rejected, as are manuscripts that do not fit within the journal’s scope.
- Reviewer assignment. Manuscripts that pass initial screening are then handed over to a section editor, who will select at least two relevant reviewers and initiate the peer review process.
- Peer review. During this stage, a reviewer will assess the content of the manuscript and provide their recommendation to the Editor-in-Chief.
- First decision. Once both (or more) reviewers have submitted their recommendations, the manuscript is either rejected, asked for revisions (minor or major), or accepted as is. If it is accepted, the manuscript is returned to the submitting author for proofreading. The final decision to accept the manuscript is made by the Editor-in-Chief based on the recommendation of the section editor and following approval by the editorial board.
- Revision. A manuscript that requires revisions is returned to the submitting author, who will have up to four weeks to revise the manuscript. Once the revision is submitted, it is once again assessed by the section editor to determine whether the changes are adequate and appropriate, as well as whether the author sufficiently responded to the reviewers’ comments and suggestions. If the revisions are deemed to be inadequate, this step is repeated (the manuscript is returned to the submitting author once more for further revision).
- Final decision. Finally, the revised manuscript is either accepted or rejected, depending on whether the section editor has found the manuscript to have been improved to a level worthy of publication. If the author are unable to make the required changes or have done so to a degree below DIKTUMs standards, the manuscript is rejected.
- Language editing. Once the manuscript is accepted, it is returned to the submitting author for final editing of its language and content.
