Paper Review Process

All published IJTEF papers are blind and peer refereed by international renounced scholars. Submitted manuscriptsare first desk reviewed by the Editorial Team for their general suitability and to make sure the submitted papers conform to the journal writing style and guidelines. Papers are not consistent with the journal’s overall aim or do not conform to guidelines may be returned for revisions or rejected without sending to reviewers for review. Papers that warrant further reviews will then go through a full double-blind review process by the journal’s international review team of experts. The following describes the general review process:
-Papers, with author information removed, are sent to 2 to 3 anonymous reviewers for review. For a fast turnaround time, reviewers are usually given 3 weeks to complete the review.
- Reviewers' comments and recommendations are compiled by the Editor. Reviewers’ decisions are often sufficient to form a decision on whether or not a paper should be accepted as is, accepted subject to revisions, revised and resubmitted upon major revisions, or rejected. For papers that require major revisions, the revised manuscript may be reviewed again by the same reviewers to see if the revised manuscript has effectively addressed the reviewers’ concerns. When reviewers return with conflicting reviewers, the Editor will make a final decision based on her/his review.

The Editor reserves the right to make suggestions and/or modifications andto refuse any typescript before final publication.
