Peer Review Process


Review Process

Each manuscript submitted to the Research Journal (JEEE) will be reviewed by two reviewers.  The mechanism is to be double-made.  The manuscript will be created the same for review, and so will the review for the author.  The final decision is made by the editorial board based on the results of the review.  Plagiarism is strictly prohibited in the Journal of Urban Development.  The journal uses plagiarism detection software like

Criteria for Manuscripts Accepted or Rejected by Reviewers

The journal JEEE requested cooperation from external reviewers to facilitate communication with the scriptwriter. In any case the acceptance of the manuscript should be attributed to:

  1. Academic knowledge and experience in the subject of the manuscript. An invitation to the reviewer means that he has a solid understanding of the subject of the article.
  2. Reviewing an article takes time and dedicating thought to evaluating a manuscript.
  3. Conflict of interest.

A conflict of interest may occur as a result of proximity or hostility to the author if the reviewer identifies the author even though their name has been removed from the manuscript. Reviewers must declare any conflict of interest and refuse an editor's invitation to evaluate a manuscript when, for example, they identify the author of the manuscript, academically or intimately close to the author, belonging to the same university, department, research group, professional network, research project as author or have published an article with the author, or any other type of professional connection or conflict/closeness. In this case the reviewer should refuse the offer from the editor to review the article. Authors can inform journals through the platform to say which researchers may have a conflict of interest with their submissions; Reviewers should do the same.

  1. Commitment to confidentiality.

Reviewers must maintain strict confidentiality when assessing manuscripts and must not divulge their contents to third parties. If the reviewer wishes to obtain a second opinion on the article, he should consult with the editor, whose approval is required in order for the manuscript to be viewed by the second reviewer. Editors welcome these additional comments provided that strict confidentiality is maintained throughout the entire review process. These additional evaluations and recommendations will help editors make the final decision about the manuscript.
