About the Journal
Published by College of Natural and Computational Sciences.
It is the policy of the Ethiopian Journal of Science (SINET) to uphold the quality and standards of the journal by ensuring that all manuscripts pass through a rigorous review process by peer-reviewers.
Double-blind peer review
SINET follows a double-blind peer review process and both the author and the reviewer are maintained anonymously.
The Editor-in-Chief forwards new manuscripts to the appropriate Associate Editor with the relevant expertise. Then the Associate Editor makes a preliminary review of the manuscript and decides whether it is send to external reviewers as it is, resubmission or rejection.
Peer-review by reviewers
A manuscript is sent to at least three reviewers who have relevant expertise in the subject matter. Reviewers are requested to complete and submit the journal’s review report form including additional and detailed comments as they deem necessary once the manuscript is reviewed. The final decision whether to accept or reject the reviewer’s decision lies with the Associate Editor. Associate Editors can review manuscripts as reviewers in their area of specialization. All the comments of reviewers are sent to authors for revision of manuscripts. In the event that a reviewer recommends rejection while the other reviewers accept a manuscript, the reason(s) given for rejecting the manuscript is sent to authors in cases when the Associate Editor considers the comments constructive and useful in assisting authors to improve the manuscript.
Revision of manuscript
Following submission of revised manuscripts, the Associate Editor reviews the revised version to ensure that the authors have addressed the comments of reviewers. In the event that the Associate Editor is of the opinion that the revision has not adequately addressed the comments of reviewers, the manuscript is sent to authors for re-revision indicating the issues that require attention. In rare cases, the Associate Editor may decide to send the revised version to the reviewers for checking the manuscript.
