The Editorial Office of the Journal and the SQUJS subject editors check each submitted manuscript for general quality, suitability and whether it conforms to the prescribed format. All manuscripts are also checked for plagiarism; if discovered, immediate strong action is taken. If prima facie is found acceptable, the manuscript will be sent out for national/international peer review. All reviewers treat the manuscript with the strictest confidentiality and must declare any conflict of interest. Delays can be avoided if authors comply with the Authors’ Guidelines in preparing the manuscripts (see below). Comments and suggestions from the reviewers are conveyed to the authors via the online journal management system. Revised manuscripts are subject to further review by the original reviewers and the responsible subject editors. The final decision as to acceptance or rejection of the manuscript will be taken by the Editor-in-Chief in consultation with the Editor and the concerned subject editors, subject to approval by the SQUJS Editorial Board and the SQU Academic Publications Board.
