JOIN THE EDITORIAL

Peer-reviewing is as an essential part of quality scientific publication. We encourage qualified scientists from graduate students to emeritus researchers to generate or share their experience with the peer review process to further their professional and personal development.

STANDARDS

The Editorial Boards provide a framework of evaluation criteria which is based on:

  • Quality Content
  • Scientific Impact
  • Paradigmatic Value

All peer reviewers of the specific field share and compare their evaluations following the framework provided to create blueprints. These blueprints are used to develop evaluation guidelines/criteria that are applied to all materials in the field. Each Editorial Board establishes substantial inter-rater reliability in its evaluations before evaluation procedures are implemented on the remaining materials in its disciplines.

 

EVALUATIONS

Editorial Boards decide on the process for selecting materials to be peer reviewed. If a collection of materials is not large enough to adequately establish inter-rater reliability, its Editorial Board works to expand the collection sufficiently. Peer Reviewer teams typically use the following two step Peer Review Process:

1. Identification of Worthy Candidates

The Editorial Board reviews its collection and classifies materials according worthiness:

  • Absolutely worth reviewing
  • Possibly worth reviewing
  • Not worth reviewing at this point in time

Peer Reviewers and Associate Editors report their preliminary evaluation to their Editorial Boards. Peer Reviewers can post Member Comments based on cursory evaluations as appropriate. The Editorial Board compiles its list of worthy materials. Those submissions deemed “absolutely worth reviewing” enjoy highest priority in the review process.

2. Intensive Review

The Editorial Board assigns “worthy” materials to Editorial Board Members. At least two Peer Reviewers use their Editorial Board’s review procedures, forms, and evaluation standards as they independently review the material. Reviewers write Peer Review Reports. If there is any significant disparity in the two reviews, an Editor or Associate Editor assigns the material to a third reviewer.

3. Reporting Evaluations

The Editor or Associate Editor reviews both Individual Reviews and creates an integrated or Composite Peer Review Report on Workspace. The Editor sends the Composite Peer Review Report to the author(s) for feedback and permission to post the review on Journal Academica. When permission is obtained, the Editor posts the Composite Peer Review Report in the access-restricted “editors” page of the Journal Academica website. Authors may ask the Editor to send letters, to two individuals of their choice, summarizing the peer review process and including the Composite Peer Review Report.
