Peer Review Process

Journal of Zoological and Bioscience Research is a peer-reviewed journal. Authors are invited to nominate a list of three potential expert reviewers in their accompanying letter. These reviewers must not have a conflict of interest with the authors or the paper content, and the Editorial Board may decline to contact any of the reviewers suggested by the authors. 

Upon submission, the manuscript will be cursorily inspected in the editorial office for compliance with the author instructions. Manuscripts that do not achieve the prerequisites for publication will be immediately rejected. Remaining manuscripts will be assigned the manuscript number and acknowledged to the corresponding authors. Editor-in-Chief may reject or allocate them to one of the Editor, depending on the topic. Editors maintain a global vision of their topic areas, which are responsible for identifying relevant referees for double-blind peer review.

Two referees are usually invited to comment on each submission. When a decision has been reached, the decision is communicated to the corresponding author. The editors' decision is final.

After the author has submitted the final version and this has been accepted for publication, the manuscript undergoes a copyediting process. Journal of Zoological and Bioscience Research reserves the right to correct grammar, improve clarity, and impose the Journal of Zoological and Bioscience Research style. Authors are responsible for content, including the spelling of personal and place names. After copyediting is complete, the issue is published.
