Peer Review Process
EJWI is an open-access, peer-reviewed journal that publishes high-quality, original articles in English, and will not publish manuscripts without prior double-blind peer review. The review process of manuscripts will be done by two or more referees whose field of expertise is pertinent to the subject area.
Referees must respect their privileged position with respect to the manuscripts. They must consider the manuscripts to be privileged information, and should not, therefore, disclose their content to others before their publication. EJWI expects, therefore, that reviewers will not use that information inappropriately.
All material published in the EJWI will be online on public domain, but licensed in order to protect the original content.
1. The journal will offer a prompt peer-review and immediate publication upon acceptance. The policy is for the referees to review the submitted manuscript within four weeks in order to shorten the time of the process.
2. At least two referees will partake in the review process. Unless the manuscript is beyond the focus of the journal or is unacceptably low standard of expression or content, the managing editor will send the submission to peer reviewers. The aim is to reach a first decision shortly after a one-month period.
3. The editors will choose referees whose specialization best suits them to the topic of a given submission. Reviewers are asked whether the manuscript is scientifically sound and coherent, and of what quality. There will be a maximum of three revisions of any manuscripts permitted. The final decision lies with the Editor-in-Chief.
4. The content of a submission under review is privileged information, and referees are not to disclose it to others before publication.
5. The journal encourages referees' comments to be constructive as far as it possible.
6. The editor evaluates the recommendation, and a notification to the author of the manuscript status is sent. The manuscript may be, "Accepted for publication as is", "Accepted for publication with minor changes, with no re-review necessary", "Accepted for publication after substantial revision and additional review", and "Rejected".
7. The comments of the anonymous reviewers will be included in the response to the author. When submitting the revised manuscript, the author should also send a response to the referees, indicating what modifications have been made in your manuscript and reasons why certain suggested changes were not followed. The journal will usually ask the authors to complete and submit within two weeks after receiving the referees' comments. The editors may reject late manuscripts.
8. Any material that has been previously copyrighted, published, or accepted for publication will not be considered for publication in the journal.
9. The general goal of the review process is to ensure that all authors have equal opportunity for publication of their papers.
