Peer Review Policy

Universe Publishing Group (UniversePG) is committed to increasing the evaluation and publication of fully accepted articles and operates a conventional double-blind reviewing policy in which the author's name remains anonymous to reviewers and vice versa. The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good research manuscript is published in all areas of UniversePG. Upon submission of an article, all areas of articles undergo a rigorous review process to ensure a thorough and detailed review by specific experts in the article’s interest area.

All articles are peer-reviewed following the procedure outlined below:

  • The author submits the manuscript and it receives an article tracking number which should be referred to in any subsequent communications between the corresponding author and the editor of the specific journal.
  • The article is reviewed by the journal editor against the scope of the journal.
  • Suggestions and instructions of the Authors to make sure it including the required sections in the article.
  • The editor's body will decide whether to send the article out for review or not. If the decision is to accept, then it is sent for peer review to assess the scientific quality of the article or if the decision is not to accept, the editor contacts the author with the decision.
  • The reviewers review the specific article and provide the editor with their comments, suggestions and recommendations (major or minor reject, revise or accept).
  • The editor checks the final reviews and takes the decision whether to accept, reject or to revise (usually pursued as either major or minor correction).

Finally; the editor contacts the authors with the decision. If there are revisions the authors make the necessary changes and re-submit. Authors of articles that are not accepted are notified properly and then the authors can choose to submit their articles to another journal.

Once the article is accepted by the editorial body, it moves into production and is published on the journal website.
