Peer Review of Journal of ChongQing University of Posts and Telecommunications (Natural Science Edition)
 
The Journal of ChongQing University of Posts and Telecommunications (JoCQUPT, Natural Science Edition) receives the author's manuscript through the online submission-and-review system, and the manuscript must go through the rigid process of peer review before it is formally accepted.
 
The review process includes: initial review, peer review and final review.
 
1.Initial Review
The Editorial Office checks the format and academic misconduct of all submissions. The specifics in review are: the submitted article should match subject areas covered by the journal; the submission complies with regulations from the following aspects: the format and the length of the submitted article; and non-misconduct on the part of the contributors, etc. Finally, the manuscript with the aforementioned problems would be requested for revision or directly rejected.
 
The editorial office is in large part responsible for this work.
 
2.Peer Review
The Editorial Office, in accordance with the research field of the manuscript that has passed the initial review, assigns it to the associate editor; the associate editor, in turn, would invite no less than two peer experts to review from the following aspects: the novelty, academicity, readability, theoretical significance and practical application value, and give specific comments. After that, according to experts’ comments, the associate editor would make the result of the first round of peer review (being rejected, returned for revision or entering the final review), informing the author if necessary that his paper needs to be modified, and then sent to the peer experts for the second round review. Most manuscripts which are finally accepted generally require 2-3 rounds of peer review.
 
3.Final Review
Once the manuscript is given the first decision at the stage of peer review, it would be sent by the associate editor to Editor-in-Chief(EiC)for final decision.The final review on the part of EiC will refer to the peer review comments, the revision opinions, and responses from the author while re-evaluating the content of peer-reviewed manuscripts. In the final review, the EiC further considers the novelty, academicity, readability, theoretical significance and practical application value of the manuscript. Meanwhile, EiC must conduct a rigorous review of the normative issues, such as academic requirement, and examine strictly the standardization of the peer review process. Lastly,the decisions of “reject”, “re-review after revision”, “final review after revision”, and “accepted” needs to be made by EiC as a result of specific situations.
