Peer Review Process

Peer-review is double-blind, with reviewers and authors being unaware of one another's identities. Receiving, blinding, and forwarding of manuscripts to reviewers is performed by one member of the Editorial Board whom is not involved in making peer review decisions.

All manuscripts are reviewed by at least one reviewer. Manuscripts that are considered strong candidates for publication are forwarded to other reviewers. The quality of a manuscript is typically judged based on its originality, methodology, readability, style, ease of editing, and alignment with the iJournal's philosophy of interdisciplinarity.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
