Peer Review Process
The submitted manuscript is first reviewed by an editor. It will be evaluated in the office whether it is suitable with our focus and scope or has a major methodological flaw. Every submitted manuscript which passes this step will be checked to identify any plagiarism before being reviewed by reviewers. This journal uses double-blind review, the manuscript will be sent to the reviewer anonymously. Reviewers' comments are also sent anonymously to corresponding author to take the necessary actions and responses. The decision of the revised manuscript will be then evaluated in editorial board meeting, based on the reviewer’s recommendation from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted. The Editor-in-Chief of Journal Demography, Ethnography and Social Transformation (Jo-DEST) has the right to decide which manuscripts submitted to the journal should be published.
