Peer Review Process

Responsibilities of reviewers of manuscripts

  • Transparency and integrity of the research publication is ensured by the peer review process.  Reviewers must therefore be responsible both ethically and professionally.
  • All reviewers must provide assistance to the Editor and Editorial Board to make editorial decisions and also provide feedback to the authors to improve the manuscript.
  • Selected reviewers who for any reason are unable to review the received manuscript must report to the Editor/Editorial Board immediately.
  • All reviews must be conducted objectively. Personal comments, references and criticisms of authors are not correct and are not accepted.
  • Constructive and clear comments relevant to manuscript must be made by the reviewers and they should be supported by appropriate arguments.
  • The reviewers must keep all knowledge gained from the review completely confidential.
  • The reviewer must declare conflict of interest if any, that may arise from competitive, collaborative or other connections with any of the authors or institutions associated with the manuscript.

The peer-review process of the JNSF is a double blind process.

The manuscripts submitted to the JNSF will initially be pre-screened by the Editorial Board members, and if suitable will be referred to two specialists in the relevant field. The two reviewers are experts in the matching discipline with anonymity for both author and referee.

If there is a disagreement between the reviewers, the manuscript would be sent to a third reviewer.

The final decision regarding the acceptance/rejection will be made by the Editorial Board based on the comments of the referees.
