After that, a formal peer review process is conducted in collaboration with editorial board members and independent refrees around the world. The publisher exploits electronic peer-review system to contact reviewers and keep records of manuscripts.

Peer Review Process

Papers submitted to the Journal of Computer Science & Computational Mathematics must pass a single-blind review process. To publish in the Journal of Computer Science & Computational Mathematics the following criteria should met:

  • The study presents results of primary scholarly research.
  • Reported results have not been published elsewhere.
  • The research meets all applicable standards of ethics and research integrity.
  • Experiments, statistics, and other analyses performed to a high technical standard and described in sufficient detail.
  • Conclusions are presented in appropriate form and are supported by the data.
  • The article is presented in an intelligible fashion and is written in standard English.

Once a manuscript passes quality control, it is assigned to a member of the editorial board (or an expert in the field which will become guest editor) for conducting the peer-review process for making a decision on accept, minor revision, major revision, or reject of the article. 

  • The manuscript will be reviewed by two suitable experts in respective subject area.
  • The reports of both the reviewers will be considered while deciding on acceptance/revision or rejection of a manuscript.
  • Editor-In-Chief will make the final decision, based on reviewer's comments.
  • Editor-In-Chief can ask one or more advisory board members for their suggestions upon a manuscript, before making the final decision.
  • Associate editor and review editors provide the administrative support to maintain the integrity of peer review process.
  • In case, authors challenge editor's negative decision with suitable arguments, the manuscript can be sent to one more reviewer and the final decision will be made based upon his recommendations.
