Peer Review Policy

Once International Journal of Social Science Research (IJSSR) receives an article, the author will be notified by e-mail that the submission has been received. An initial evaluation will be carried out to determine if the submission meets IJSSR standards and if it is within the scope of the journal.

If the paper passes the initial evaluation, the peer review process will be handled. The paper will be peer-reviewed by at least two potential reviewers who are experts in the same field. Reviewers are asked to complete the process within two weeks.

The contributions submitted to IJSSR will be reviewed based on the following general criteria:

  • Contribution to existing knowledge
  • Organization and Readability
  • Soundness of methodology
  • Evidence supports conclusion
  • Adequacy of literature review

When the reviews and recommendation have been received, the editor makes one of the following decisions: Accept Submission; Revisions Required; Resubmit for Review; Decline Submission.
