Reviewer Guidelines

Guide for Reviewers


Article Substance Review

A reviewer guideline is used to review article material against the standard components of the article.

Title: The title must describe the manuscript's subject adequately, clearly, precisely, and not have multiple interpretations.

Abstract: The abstract should briefly state the research purpose, the methods used, the results, and the core conclusions.

Reference Review: Authors must cite others who contributed to the article. Excessive cited sources must be avoided. The head in the introduction must illustrate the author's originality and novelty through gap analysis.

Purpose: The purpose of the article review should be well explained and will be able to answer the hypothesis.

Methods: The methods utilized to accomplish goals should be stated accurately and thoroughly enough for a competent reader to duplicate the author's work. The research tools, resources, equipment platforms, and procedures must be described.

Clarity: To be clearly understood, writers must write information on research methodology and results in articles in a straightforward, concise, and effective manner.

Delivery organization: Manuscripts must develop/explain the research subject logically and effectively.

Duplication: The details of published research by the author or others are not duplicated in manuscripts. If there are any duplications in the text, the reviewer can provide additional remarks. Check out whether several figures and tables may be added to create the Manuscript shorter without affecting content.

Calculations: Reviewers check if you can verify the authors' findings in a few randomly selected cases.

Text-to-Tables-and-Figures Correlation: All figures and tables must be linked in the text/paragraphs. The text's statements must relate to the contents of the tables and figures.

Titles of Figures and Tables: The contents should be stated in the title. Kindly suggest ways to improve the table/image titles quality.

Title in Table/Caption: interpretation should be unequivocal and use the correct SI units.

Graphics: Data for presenting graphs/images must be accurate.

Conclusion: Conclusions to answer the hypothesis must be stated adequately and clearly and must be supported by data and testing.

Allegation: The author must clearly distinguish between conjecture and fact.

References: All references must be provided in the Bibliography/References section of the manuscript. There are at least 15 references, with 60% primary (scientific journals, proceeding articles, reference books, thesis/dissertation) published in the last ten years.
