The Journal of Business and Management Studies (JBMS) is committed to maintaining the highest standards of scholarly publishing through a rigorous and transparent peer review process. This process plays a pivotal role in ensuring the quality, credibility, and reliability of the research articles published in the journal.
1. Manuscript Submission and Initial Screening
Authors submit their manuscripts to JBMS through an online submission system. Upon receipt, the editorial team conducts an initial screening to ensure that the submission aligns with the journal's scope and guidelines. This preliminary assessment involves checking for adherence to formatting requirements, ethical considerations, and basic suitability for the journal.
2. Assignment to Peer Reviewers
Manuscripts that pass the initial screening are assigned to expert peer reviewers with relevant expertise in the field. JBMS follows a double-blind peer review model, ensuring both the anonymity of authors and reviewers, fostering unbiased evaluations.
3. Peer Review Evaluation Criteria
Peer reviewers assess manuscripts based on various criteria, including the significance of the research question, methodological soundness, clarity of presentation, originality, and contribution to the existing body of knowledge. Reviewers also evaluate ethical considerations, ensuring research integrity and compliance with academic standards.
4. Peer Reviewer Feedback and Recommendations
Reviewers provide detailed feedback to authors, offering constructive criticism and suggestions for improvement. They may recommend acceptance, minor revisions, major revisions, or rejection based on the manuscript's quality and alignment with the journal's standards. The peer review process is a collaborative dialogue between authors and reviewers, promoting scholarly discourse.
