All submitted manuscripts will be undergoing initial screening process to see the originality of the work as well as relevance and contribution. To save time for authors and peer-reviewers, only those papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria will be sent for formal review. Those papers judged by the editors to be of insufficient general interest or otherwise inappropriate will be rejected promptly without external review (although these decisions may be based on advice from specialists in the field).
The paper shall be sent to the two blind experts for reviewing. The reviewers will evaluate the paper on the basis of the following criteria;
I. Significance and relevant of the topic to the field
II. Well addressed research problem
III. Originality of the content
IV. Relevant and adequacy of the review of literature.
V. Proper research methodology adopted
VI. Organization of the contents
VII. Quality of writing
VIII. Managerial implication of the research
X. Overall contribution of the research.
XI. Any other comments from the reviewers
After two evaluations, Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership will be forwarded for formal review, typically to two reviewers, but sometimes more if special advice is needed (for example on statistics or a particular technique). The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' advice, from among several possibilities:
Accept, with or without editorial revisions.
Invite the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached.
Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work might justify a resubmission.
Reject outright, typically on the grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems.
