Peer Review Processes
AIAC journals rely on the peer review process to uphold the quality and validity of individual articles and the journals that publish them. The peer review process can take anywhere between six weeks to 10 weeks. The aim of the review process is to identify the strengths and weaknesses of the article, in terms of originality, interest, up-to-dateness, coherence, and balanced argumentation. As such, all manuscripts submitted to AIAC journals go through Double Blind Review.
Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous.
- Author anonymity prevents any reviewer bias, for example based on an author's country of origin or previous controversial work.
- Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation.
- Reviewers can often identify the author through their writing style, subject matter or self-citation.
