Peer Review Process

The editorial team checks to make sure that the manuscripts adhere with the journal guidelines and is within the scope of JOGECA and its readership. Two reviewers who are experts in the subjects are then asked to peer review the manuscript within two weeks. The reviewer is blinded on who the authors are. The editor compiles the reviewer’s comments, and a decision is made, either, accept with no revision, accept with minor revision, major revisions for resubmission and reviews and rejected. The Author is communicated the decision. The editorial team under the leadership of the editors makes a decision on which manuscripts are accepted for publication. Once a manuscript is accepted, a galley proof is sent to the author, who is expected to revert within 72 hours.
