Guide for Reviewers

  • JOHOE adheres to a double-blind peer-review process. Each manuscript is sent to two or more reviewers in the process of blinded peer review. Peer reviewers will be asked to determine whether a manuscript could be accepted, revised, or rejected then the decision letter shows the status of the manuscript sent to the author. The reviewing was recommended to check the novelty and originality of the manuscript, the scientific reliability, Ethical aspects, the accuracy of its technical content, and its impact on and significance to the discipline.
