The first step of the review process is the Screening of a manuscript. In the screening, the article will be checked based on the journal policies and general aspects of article standards (Title, Keywords, Addresses and corresponding author's address, the Structured Abstract, Background, Objectives (optional), Methods, Results, Discussion, References, Acknowledgements).
If all of the above items were accepted, the manuscript will be sent to the next step and entered into the review process. Otherwise, it will be sent back to the author for more considerations and the author has to resubmit it after correcting the errors.
The Scientific Quarterly of Political Sociology of the Islamic Revolution is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal. All articles are peer-reviewed by anonymous reviewers which are selected by the Editorial Board.
Articles will be sent to at least two reviewers. The corresponding author is notified as soon as possible of the editor's decision to accept, reject, or require modifications. If the Journal style is not regarded, the article is rejected as soon as received.
All manuscripts are reviewed by the editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside reviewers.
Contributions to The Scientific Quarterly of Political Sociology of the Islamic Revolution must report original research and will be subjected to review by referees at the discretion of the Editorial Board Office. Decisions will be made as rapidly as possible, and the journal strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 6-8 weeks after manuscript reception. A reviewed paper returned to authors for revision must be returned to the editor within 14 days (two weeks). If not, the paper may be treated as a new submission. Under unusual circumstances, editors may extend the revision deadline beyond 14 days. The Editorial Board and Chief-Editor will re-review corrected (revised) manuscripts that are accepted pending revision. The Chief-Editor will notify the author(s) of the final decision of acceptance or rejection.
It is the goal of the the Scientific Quarterly of Political Sociology of the Islamic Revolution to accept/reject manuscripts within 12 weeks after submission including:
6-8 weeks for manuscript reception, pre-evaluation of submitted manuscript by Chief-Editor, and reviewing process by reviewers
2 weeks for possible revisions by the author(s)
2 weeks for checking of revised manuscript and final decision (acceptance or rejection) by Editorial Board and Chief-Editor
3-6 months for preparation of galley proof by journal office, galley proof checking by the corresponding author, and upload of paper as online journal website.
