Peer Review Process

Double-blind peer-review:

JAAUTH pays great attention to the role of peer review. Reviewers evaluate the article for originality, methodology, bibliography (both print and digital), language, and the extent to which the subjects of the paper are harmonic with one another, according to the following steps:

  1. After receiving an electronic version of the research sent to two peer-reviewers specialized in the research’s topic, at least one must be from outside the Journal’s committee (Faculty, Editorial board, and advisory board).
  2. The author(s) receive the modifications of the reviewers: the elements of evaluation, the manuscript, and the attached report (if applicable).
  3. The manuscript will be published if it is accepted by reviewers, and an acceptance letter will be sent to the authors.
  4. In the event that the manuscript is refused, it will be sent to a third peer reviewer. His or her opinion will finally confirm if the research is acceptable for publication or not, provided that the process of academic reviewing is to be a binary anonymous one, without the author’s name upon submitting the article for review.
  5. In the case of required corrections requested from the peer reviewer, the manuscript is sent to the author(s) to address all modifications. Then, it will be sent back to the peer reviewer and editors to ensure that all corrections have been made.
  6. If reviewers reply by refusing, the manuscript will be rejected without a refund of the reviewing fees.
  7. The journal’s editors shall revise, prepare, and edit the research following the standard criteria.



  1. The author(s) submit their manuscripts through our journal’s online submission system. First, he will need to register for an account to do this at this link:
  2. After registration, the author(s) will come back to the website and log in with their username and password to continue the submission process:
  3. Desk check: If the manuscript does not exceed the plagiarism ratio from the permissible percentage (10%), as well as the references in the text and the end formatted according to the APA 7 style, it will be sent to the custom editor to express his/her opinion.
  4. Journal editor check: If the manuscript fits with the aims and scope of the journal, according to the journal editor’s opinion, it will be entered into a rigorous, double-blind peer-review process.



Once two to three reviewers have reviewed the manuscript, they will make one of the following recommendations; the final decision will be made by the editorial committee. Next, reviewer feedback on the paper will be provided to the corresponding author.

  • Accept: The corresponding author receives the final letter of acceptance for his/her manuscript for the journal’s editor-in-chief.
  • Minor revisions: The corresponding author has two weeks to resubmit the revised manuscript and authors’ responses to reviewers’ comments.
  • Major revisions: The corresponding author has three weeks to resubmit the revised manuscript and authors’ responses to reviewers’ comments.
  • Reject: The corresponding author receives the final letter of rejection for his/her manuscript, following reviewers’ comments to improve the paper and submit to other journal.
