Thank you for agreeing to referee a paper for the INTERNATIONAL JOURNAL OF TRANSDISCIPLINARY RESEARCH. Peer review is used to ensure that good science is published. It is an objective process and our reviewers play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of IJTR. This is an important role as you will provide critical and constructive feedback on the work of your peers.
Initial manuscript evaluation The Editors first evaluate all manuscripts. It is rare, but entirely feasible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Those rejected at this stage are either insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to at least 2 experts for review.
Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed as soon as possible.
Type of Peer Review IJTR employs double blind review, where the reviewer remains anonymous throughout the process.
To referee papers, read the paper and complete the referee report Please provide critical and constructive comments for the author, whether your decision is to accept or to reject the paper for publication. Upon completion of the review, please send your comments to the editor.
Please do not hesitate to contact me by email if you have any questions about the refereeing process.
