When a manuscript is received for possible publication, the submitted manuscripts are screened by the editor to check if the submitted manuscript falls in the scope of the journal and of good quality. If it is found to be unsuitable for the journal readers or of poor quality, the editor in chief may reject the manuscript without peer-reviewing at this early stage. AAU journal uses double-blind peer review – the reviewer and the author are anonymous. To ensure the originality of the submitted manuscript, the journal uses plagiarism detection software to detect any source of plagiarism. If plagiarism is detected, the manuscript is rejected by the Editor in Chief. Otherwise, the editor-in-chief sends the manuscript to at least two referees who are expert in the field and no possible conflicts of interest, to whom the manuscript is sent for review. One month is given for the reviewers to fill an evaluation form that addresses article originality, scholarly relevance, professional relevance, significance, the novelty of approach, article organization, and writing clarity, in addition to any ethical issues or misconduct. The reviewers are asked to make clear recommendations to accept or reject the manuscript or require major or minor changes. The expected revision period is 30 days. Specifically, the revision levels are either: Acceptance, Minor revision, Major revision or Rejection). Based on the reviewers' reports and recommendations, the editorial board decides whether the article is suitable for publication or not. The decision along with the review reports are communicated to the authors. The Editor-In-Chief should ensure that reviews are received within 30 days. The expected editorial review process (from paper submission to the final editorial decision) takes from 8 to 12 weeks.
