Publication Process

RUJDS employs the following four-step review system for a full peer review before publishing research articles:

  1. 1. Initial review The editorial office reviews each submission to determine whether the topic is in the scope of the journal, the structure complies with main journal requirements and the paper is not clearly affected by commercial bias. Manuscripts that do not meet minimum criteria are returned to the authors with adequate comments.

  2. 2. Peer review If the submission is suitable for expert review, it will be reviewed by reviewers, experts in fields specifically matching the manuscript's coverage. A minimum of two to three rounds of reviewing will be done.

  3. 3. Editorial decision Based on the reviewer’s recommendations, the editorial board will make the final decision to accept the submission, require revision, or decline submission. The corresponding author is notified by e-mail about the final decision, along with reviewers' reports.

  4. 4. Final decision After the editorial board's approval it is left to the editor in chief’s discretion to accept it/ suggest amendments or rejects it and the corresponding author is suitably acknowledged and expected to respect the final decision. Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within 48 hours. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period.
