Peer Review

The peer review system of FWU Journal of Social Sciences is to ensure the quality of research articles. The journal has a rigorous peer review system. All submitted manuscripts undergo a peer review process before publication.

Double Blind Peer Review

FWU Journal of Social Sciences employs a double-blind peer review system. The review process is an important aspect of the publication process. It enables authors to improve their manuscripts and help editors in making decision on manuscripts. A double-blind peer review system is an anonymous review system whereby the identity of the author(s) of a manuscript is concealed from the selected reviewers. All details that may enable a reviewer to identify the author(s) of a manuscript are removed from the manuscript before the manuscript is sent to the reviewer. Similarly, the reviewers’ identities are also concealed from the author(s) when sending the reviewers’ comments to the author(s).

The Peer Review Process

FWU Journal of Social Sciences has a three-stage review process – editorial office, external review and editors’ decision.
