Peer Review Process

The Journal is committed to upholding the highest standards of publication ethics and takes all possible measures against publication malpractices. Submitting research by all authors means that they ensure their manuscripts are original and attest that the submitted papers represent their contributions and have not been copied or plagiarized in whole or in part from other Works. Turnitin will check all submissions before being sent to reviewers according to the Journal’s Zero Tolerance on the Plagiarism Policy.

The peer review process is initiated by the editor of TMUJ respectively. First, the editor checks the scope and originality of the papers. If the initial editorial evaluations are positive, the further evaluation process continues by controlling the similarity rate of submissions to avoid ethical issues before the peer-review process. The first evaluation process takes about one week before the reviewer assignment. Upon the editorial confirmation, the peer-review process is employed by the assignment of two independent reviewers at least.

The Journal has a double-blind system for the peer-review process; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The Editorial Process follows a section editor's decision to accept or decline the submission. The results of the review process will be e-mailed to the corresponding author. The author(s) will be notified if the reviewers accept the paper. The review process is completed in 6 weeks.
