Peer Review Process

Initial evaluation of manuscripts

The Editor will first evaluate all manuscripts submitted for a maximum of 3 weeks. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the aims and scope of the JMUA. Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to experts reviewers for review. It usually took up to 8 weeks.

Type of peer review

Submitted manuscripts will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, whether it duplicates the already published works, and whether or not the manuscript is sufficiently clear for publication. The method is blind peer review.

Review reports

Reviewers are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:

  • Is original by stating the objectives and gap clearly
  • Is methodologically sound
  • Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
  • Has results/findings which are clearly presented and support the conclusions
  • Correctly references previous relevant work
  • Language correction is not part of the peer-review process


Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The Editors will reach a decision based on these reports and, where necessary, they will consult with members of the Editorial Board. The editor’s decision is final.
