Peer-Review Publication Policies
All contributions submitted to TARAN-AWAN JERTM that are selected for peer-review are sent to at least two independent reviewers, selected by the editors. Authors are welcome to suggest suitable independent reviewers and may be considered by the editorial board, but editor’s decision on the choice of referees is final.
As a condition of agreeing to assess the manuscript, all reviewers should keep submitted manuscript and associated data confidential, and not to redistribute them without permission from the journal. If a reviewer seeks advice from colleagues while assessing a manuscript, he or she ensures that confidentiality is maintained and that the names of any such colleagues are provided to the journal with the final report. By this and by other means, TARAN-AWAN JERTM try to keep the content of all submissions confidential until the publication date. Although we go to every effort to ensure reviewers to honor their promise to ensure confidentiality, we are not responsible for the conduct of reviewers.
Reviewers should be aware that it is our policy to keep their names confidential, and that we do our utmost to ensure this confidentiality. Under normal circumstances, blind peer-review is protected from legislation. We cannot, however, guarantee to maintain this confidentiality in the face of a successful legal action to disclose identity in the event of a reviewer having written personally derogatory comments about the authors in his or her reports. For this reason, as well as for reasons of standard professional courtesy, we request reviewers to refrain from personally negative comments about the authors of submitted manuscripts. Frank objective comments about the scientific content of the manuscripts, however, are strongly encouraged by the editors.
The reviewed articles bear the decisions of the reviewers for acceptance or rejection. In case of diverse decisions from the two reviewers, the editorial board has to convene and decide on the matter.
