The double blind peer review process of the Proceedings Journal of Education, Psychology and Social Science Research includes the following steps:
- Authors submit an article through the conference.
- After presentation, the conference organizers submit to the Editor-in-chief the articles and the Editor-in-chief verifies relevance of the article to the proceedings journal s policy for publishing such papers and then,
- Submit the article to peer-reviewers, who are authorities in the selected fields (usually three) for comments and suggestion and assist the Editor-in-chief in arriving at a decision to publish. If the manuscript is not approved for further evaluation, they ask Editor-in-chief to reject the paper without peer reviewing (Fast rejection).
- To help decide on the merits of the paper and reach a common conclusion on the paper s suitability for publication, the Editor-in-chief usually asks for an editorial board gathering to study the peer-reviewers comments.
- The authors may be asked to respond to the questions raised by reviewers if the paper is accepted for publication or a rejection letter is sent if not accepted.
- The author/s are to respond in due time and clarify ambiguities if any.
- Upon receiving the revised paper, the reviewers (usually two out of three) check for the author/s feedbacks on their comments.
Upon the last round of review (mentioned at 7), and their approval, the paper is revised by editors and it is put in the queue for publication.
