Peer Review Process

The IJBF has a two-stage review process. In the first stage, each paper must be initially evaluated by at least one editor to decide that a paper should go to a reviewer. If a paper passes through screening at this level, the paper is sent to two referees one from Sri Lanka and other from abroad for blinded review with detailed comments.

The review process usually takes one/two months, but it may take a longer time in some cases.

Depending upon the reviewers’ recommendations, the manuscript is accepted or rejected or, most likely, rewriting suggestions are given to the author by the Editor-in-Chief.

The author then modifies the manuscript as per the requirement and sends a revised manuscript.

The Editor-in-Chief, with the consultation of the associate editor, makes the final decision on including a submission for publication.

In case of acceptance of the paper(s), IJABF reserves the right of making modifications in the final draft of the research paper to suit the journal’s standard and requirement.
