General Peer-Review and Editorial Procedure
A thorough peer-review process is applied to every manuscript submitted to our journal. An editorial pre- check is conducted by the Editor-in-Chief after the technical pre-check by the managing editor. Authors are asked to make changes in response to peer reviews, which are carried out by at least two independent experts. Accepted articles are subject to copyediting and English editing, with the Editor-in-Chief having the final say.
Editorial Decision and Revision
At least two review reports are provided for every manuscript that is published in the CIT Review Journal after thorough peer review. Authors are informed of the following decisions: acceptance in the submitted form, acceptance following minor revisions (with a five-day revision period), reconsideration following major revisions (with two rounds of revision permitted), or outright rejection in the event that the article contains significant errors and lacks original content. The Managing Editor works with authors at every stage of the process to ensure thorough analysis and prompt revisions.
