Peer Review Process
JPSDM has a high standard for publication. All the published papers should undergo the peer-review process by two experts in the field, following these indicators. Before the peer-review process starts, the Editorial Board will ensure that the manuscript has complied with sufficient academic writing and followed the author's instructions. This desk review stage verifies the title, abstract, introduction, analysis, conclusion, reference, and language quality of the manuscript. If the manuscript does not meet these criteria, the author(s) will get advice for the desk review revision(s). The Editorial Board may also directly reject the manuscript if it is below the threshold.
Prior to submitting the manuscript to this journal, all authors are advised to read and do a self-assessment by referring to the manuscript's preliminary selection criteria. The table below becomes a key instrument to help journal management in processing the manuscript.
