Peer Review Process
The process of review is considered critical to establishing a reliable body of research and knowledge. The review process aims to make authors meet the standards of their discipline, and of science in general.
We use a double-blind system for peer-reviewing; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous to each other. The paper will be peer-reviewed by two or three experts; one is an editorial staff and the other two are external reviewers.
The editor will pass the manuscripts that are accepted for publication to a publisher who will be responsible for organizing the editorial services and online printing of the publication.
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available after publication on the EJ-BOTANY website to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
EJ-BOTANY has a policy of Zero Tolerance for Plagiarism. We check the plagiarism issue through two methods: reviewer check and plagiarism prevention tool (iThenticate.com).
All submissions will be checked by plagiarism prevention software before being sent to reviewers.
