Peer Review Process

Upon submission, an initial manuscript assessment will be carried out by our internal editorial staff. This assessment will include checks for plagiarism, grammatical consistencies/inconsistencies, and adherence to the journal’s instructions to authors.

The assessment will also ascertain that the manuscript is within the scope of the DECENT Database. Suitable manuscripts will then be sent out by an Editor, to three independent expert reviewers for a single-blind peer-review of the scientific content. If accepted, the manuscript will be published on the DECENT Database, and authors will be continually rewarded based on the number of times their article is accessed (if published under the non-open access model).
