Steps in Peer Review

  • The author submits all required materials, including copyright form, and separate cover letter via submission portal.
  • Completed submission is sent out to two or three reviewers.
  • Reviewers review the article and send it back to the editorial office for processing.
  • After initial review, Editor-in-Chief releases reviews to authors.
  • Authors are asked to respond to reviewers and make necessary corrections.
  • The article is sent out for re-review.
  • Editor-in-Chief may accept, reject, accept with minor alterations, or send out for the third review.
  • If accepted, the author must submit the final version. The version will be added to “in-press” queue with publisher.
  • Prior to publication, the publisher will send galleys to authors. No edits may be made after galleys are approved.
  • The article is printed or published online in JHIMI Journal
