Review Process

Articles submitted to Asian-Australasian Journal of Food Safety and Security are subject to strict peer-reviewing. Once a manuscript passes the initial checks, it will be assigned to at least two independent experts for peer-review. The journal operates a single blind peer-review (the reviewers know the authors’ identities, but the authors do not know the reviewers’ identities). Peer review comments are confidential and will only be disclosed with the express agreement of the reviewer.

Key characteristics of peer review process are listed below:

  • All research articles are reviewed by at least two suitably qualified experts.
  • A reviewer that accepts the invitation will be given 21 days to complete a review. After 21 days the review becomes overdue. If the reviewer doesn’t respond to the personal email, the manuscript invitation will be withdrawn and the next reviewer will be invited.
  • The corresponding author will receive an email once reviewers submit the comments to AAJFSS. Editor will check the comments and forward it to the corresponding author with or without further comments. The corresponding author has to submit the revised manuscript as per editorial and reviewers comments within 3 weeks. If the corresponding author does not submit the revised version within 3 weeks of sending the revision letter, the article will be considered rejected, and the article metadata will be deleted from the system.
  • All publication decisions are made finally by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief or a suitable editorial board member on the basis of the reviews provided.
  • If all processes from complete submission to revision go smoothly, then 6-8 weeks are usually required to reach a conclusion (Acceptance/Rejection).
