Peer review process
The following is the editorial workflow that manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Shahrekord University of Medical Sciences (JSKUMS) will be peer-reviewed. The editorial workflow is fully run through the online manuscript tracking system. After the submission of a manuscript is finalized, all authors are informed about the submission and the corresponding author can track the manuscript on his/her private page on the JSKUMS website. The Editor-in-Chief examines the submitted manuscript.
Based on the subject of the manuscript, the Editor-in-Chief also asks the section editor or one of the associate editors or co-editors to examine the manuscript. If they determined that the manuscript is not adequately qualified to undergo the review process or if its subject is not suitable for the journal’s scope, the manuscript will be rejected without any other processing. If the Editor-in-Chief determined that the submitted manuscript is adequately qualified and its subject is related to the journal’s scope, then the manuscript will be sent to one of the editorial board members based on its subject, the lack of any potential conflicts of interest, and the availability of the editors. In this case, the manuscript will be sent to at least 2 external reviewers for peer-reviewing. The Peer review process is as follows:
