Peer Review Process

Peer Review Process

1. Editors first review the submitted manuscript, called initial review by the editors. It will be evaluated whether the submitted manuscript is suitable for the Journal of Reproducible Research (JRR) based on aims and scope, similarity score by using our prescribed tool, methodological flaw, readability of the articles, and adhering to the submitted paper template.

2. Furthermorethe manuscript will be sent to at least 2 anonymous reviewers (Double-Blind Peer-Review), which means the reviewers do not know the names of the authors, and the authors do not know who reviewed their manuscript (but if the research is published reviewers can eventually know the names of the authors). 

3. The anonymous reviewers' comments are then sent to the corresponding author for necessary actions and responses. Afterward, the editorial team meeting suggested the final decision to the revised manuscript by authors.

4. Finally, the Editor-in-Chief will send the final decision to the corresponding author.

5. The accepted manuscript then continued to the copyediting and layout editing process to prepare the camera-ready paper.


Plagiarism Detection

Journal of Reproducible Research uses the Similarity Check service provided by Turnitin tool where articles having more than 15% similarity index will be declined as desk-rejection. Being strict in plagiarism, the first level of assessing the paper starts with this process. Hence, every published paper in Journal of Reproducible Research (JRR) will be guranteed of similarity-free papers

Turnitin originality detection software helps to identify text similarities which may indicate plagiarism. It does this by comparing manuscripts with both a web repository and in leading databases.
