How does the peer review process of Gazi Academic View work?
The articles that are submitted to Gazi Academic View Journal should be screened by a similarity detection software prior to submission. Articles that are submitted to the journal first go through a general evaluation of the Editorial Board. Those articles that do not pass this first stage receive a desk-rejection and they are not sent out for review. Reasons for desk rejection can be non-compliance with author guidelines, not being in accordance with Publication Ethics or being out of the scope of the Journal. Those articles that pass the general evaluation of the Editorial Board proceed to double blind peer review. At this stage each article will be anonymously sent to two referees who are experts on the subject of the article. If both of the referee reports are positive, the articles are accepted for publication. If one of the reports is positive and the other one is negative, then the article is sent to a third referee. If both of the referee reports are negative, the article is rejected. If an article is evaluated by one or two of the referees as “review and resubmit“, then it should be reviewed and resubmitted by the authors no later than 20 days. The reviewed and resubmitted articles can be re-examined by the referee, if necessary. The articles that receive the approval of both referees as “publishable” are accepted for publishing in Gazi Academic View and the corresponding author is informed. The accepted articles will be queued for publication and will appear in the future issues based on their submission date. In the event of any disagreements, the author has the right to raise an objection to the referee’s decision. It should be reached as a separate page to the editors. The opinions in the articles published in Gazi Academic View Journal are the personal opinions of the authors; and not binding for the journal.
