Peer review policy:

The (IHJPAS) follows a double–blind peer review policy, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. The policy involves two external reviewers can be suggested by authors if they wish. However, the decision to consider these reviewers is at the editor’s discretion. Authors write a cover letter that includes the institutional email addresses of reviewers and (For instance Scopus ID or ORCID). Authors may demand the exclusion of individuals as peer reviewers, but they should explain the reasons in their cover letter on their submission. Authors should not exclude too many individuals as this may hinder the peer review process.

Please note that the editor may choose to invite excluded peer reviewers. Intentionally falsifying information, for example, suggesting reviewers with a wrong name or email address will result in rejection of the manuscript and may lead to further investigation in line with our misconduct policy.
