Peer Review Process

The suitability of papers for publication in JOSETA is judged by the members of the editorial board. The editor-in-chief handles all correspondence with the author and makes the final decision as to whether the paper is recommended for acceptance or rejection, or needs to be returned to the author for revision.

A reviewer may not be from the same institution as the author. Reviewers should examine the paper and return it with their report to the editor-in-chief as soon as possible, usually within 3 weeks. The journal operates a double-blind peer review process in which the anonymity of the authors and the reviewers is safeguarded.

The reviewer recommends either acceptance, acceptance after revision, resubmission after revision, or rejection. If both reviewers recommend acceptance or rejection, the decision stands. When their opinions differ, then the editor-in-chief may ask a third reviewer or associate editor to decide on the acceptance or rejection of that paper. If a paper is not suitable for publication, the corresponding author will be notified with a statement of reasons for rejection. 


Publication Frequency

The JOSETA frequently published three times in a year (April, August, and December)
