Reviewers Guidelines

Reviewers Guideline :

The editor should take all reasonable steps to ensure the quality of the material they publish, recognizing that journals and sections within journals will have different aims and standards.


The editor should respond promptly to complaints and should ensure there is a way for dissatisfied complainants to take complaints further. This mechanism should be made clear in the journal and should include information on how to refer unresolved matters to COPE.Below are the guidelines for reviewing articles/works submitted to Research Constellations Journal for publication consideration. As you know, Research Constellations Journal is an international Multidisciplinary peer-reviewed journal that seeks to publish strong academic works; therefore, your contribution to this process is essential. We appreciate the time, effort, and dedication you demonstrate by your willingness to help in this important endeavour.

Because of our desire to provide prompt feedback to our contributors and reduce the unnecessary delays in making quality research available to our audience, time is of the essence in our review process. As a result, we ask that you provide your review comments and recommendations within 30 days of receipt of the manuscript. If, for any reason, you will be unable to meet this timeline, please notify the editor as soon as possible.

Typically all materials will be sent to and received from reviewers via e-mail unless some unusual circumstance dictates otherwise. All materials will be converted to MS Word for the review process. (All accepted articles will be converted to a PDF file for publishing.) Of course, all materials received during this review process are to be treated as confidential.

We ask that reviewers be as complete and thorough as possible in their assessment, considering issues of fit to this particular journal, content, editorial style, sophistication, empirical rigor, and contribution.

Reviewers should provide the editor a general appraisal of the article in paragraph form; however, they can also utilize the editing features in MS word for comments that will be forwarded to the submitting author. In each case, the reviewer’s comments should follow the format and provide an assessment of the criteria listed on the attached page including a recommendation for publication, revision, or rejection. In each case, the reviews should be clear and concise and fully support the overall recommendation.


Once your review is completed, please promptly submit all material to:
