Based on the agreement with our reviewers, they are committed to these regulations:
There are three types of "Peer Review" among the Kowsar Journals:
We believe that publishing our peer review reports could make a transparent and clear environment for all our efforts within a journal, but not all reviewers tend to publish their comments.
Please see below diagram which shows the review process.
An "Open Peer Review" process is making the details of all review process (including reviewers, associate editors, and EICs comments) as "Public" as it is agreed by EIC, Authors, and reviewers.
The project of "Open Peer Review" will be started from 1 Sep 2019 in all of Kowsar journals.
Here you may find a sample model of open peer review process in Kowsar journals.
