- FUEN Journal uses a peer-review process before publishing newly submitted manuscripts.
- All submissions are initially assessed by the Editorial Board for suitability for the journal and checked for similarity to other published work. Papers with a low level of originality, i.e. whole plagiarism/plagiarism-in-part/self-plagiarism are rejected. Only original papers not published in other journals/conference proceedings can be published in the FUEN Journal.
- Papers deemed suitable are then sent to at least three independent reviewers to assess their scientific quality. The reviewers are recruited from entities outside the Authors’ home institution.
- The reviews are done using a form and conclude with an unambiguous recommendation as to whether the article should be published or rejected. The form is automatically available after acceptance of the invitation for the review process. If two reviews are negative, the paper is rejected, and authors get a motivated refusal along with reviewers’ remarks. If one review is negative and two others are positive, the paper is sent to the fourth reviewer.
- The Editorial Board is responsible for the final decision regarding the acceptance or rejection of articles. The decision of the Editorial Board is final.
- The whole review process takes 4-5 weeks.
- The final date of publication depends on the number of manuscripts already waiting for publishing.
