Peer Review Guidelines
All submissions are to a severe review. The process is single-blind, meaning the reviewers’ identities are not revealed to authors, while the reviewer is aware of the author’s identity. The standard peer review procedure is like this:
• All submissions are reviewed by ijsdip editorial team members to ensure their adherence to the requirements of this journal, including its English composition, scientific values, and ethical issues.
• Then the submission will be assigned to a handling editor who will invite referees to review the manuscript.
• Once conclusive referees’ reports are received, the editor will make the first decision on the manuscript as Acceptance, Revision or Rejection.
• Upon receiving a revision together with documented explanations, in consultation with the referees the editor will make the final decision on the manuscript. Acceptance can be issued only when detailed and conclusive reports are in place to confirm the manuscript’s value and contribution in the fields.
This journal provides a review report form (template) to make the process systematic and streamlined. The reviewer should focus on the quality of both the scientific side and the presentation, of the manuscript, and aim at providing constructive comments to bring the manuscript to its best quality. This dictates a fair, rapid, comprehensive and comparable assessment of the research within.
It is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes publication malpractice and conflicts of interest very seriously. All of authors, AIMS Press editors and referees are required to disclose any conflicts of interest.
The reviewing process is strictly confidential and should be treated as such by the reviewers. Reviewers must not take any confidential information they have gained in the reviewing process and take advantage of it before the manuscript is published.
We definitely believe that an efficient editorial process that results in timely publication provides a valuable service (value-added editorial process) to both the authors and the scientific community at large.
Article Processing Charge
There is no article processing charges.
• Fabrication is making up data or results and recording or reporting them.
• Falsification is manipulating research materials, equipment, or processes, or changing or omitting data or results such that the research is not accurately represented in the research record.
• Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person’s ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.
• Redundant Publication: The submission has not been published nor is it under consideration for publication elsewhere. Authors also shall not submit their manuscripts to other outlets while under review at this journal. Violation will result in the rejection of their submissions (if still under review) or retraction of their published paper, the incidence will be reported to their institutions and they will be charged with the cost of reviewing.
It reserves the right to contact the institutions of the authors to investigate possible publication misconduct if the editors find conclusive evidence of misconduct before or after the publication.
Reviewers’ responsibilities and Editors’ responsibilities

It believes that an efficient editorial process that results in timely publication provides a valuable service both to authors and to the scientific community at large.
The list of Authors should accurately reflect who carried out the research and who wrote the article. All multi-authored papers should include an Authors’ Contributions’ section at the end of the paper. When the corresponding author submits an article, this implies that all authors and responsible authorities where the work was carried out have approved its publication.
• The list of Authors should correspond to the following criteria; (1) the conception and design of the study, the acquisition of data, or the analysis and interpretation of data; (2) drafting the article or critically revising its important intellectual content; (3) final approval of the version submitted. The corresponding author has to declare the contributions of individual authors when submitting the article.
• All Authors must meet these criteria for authorship and, conversely, no-one should be omitted from the list if he/she meets these criteria.
• To add, delete or rearrange author names in the authorship before acceptance, you must declare (a) the reason for adding, deleting or rearranging the name(s) and (b) written confirmation (by e-mail, fax or letter) from all authors, including those who have been removed or added, that they agree with the proposed change. Any changes made to authorship after the article is published are not allowed.
All Authors, Referees and Editors must disclose any financial and personal relationships with other people or organizations that could inappropriately influence (bias) their work. They may include:
