Criteria for publication

AGRIBUSINESS JOURNAL receives articles related to submissions to be published. Thus, peer-reviewers accept articles selectively and reject articles which may need intolerable revisions. To be published in the AGRIBUSINESS JOURNAL, articles should meet four general criteria:

Overall, acceptable articles should represent  outstanding comprehensions which are liable to inspire the thinking develepment of the field. There should be perceptible reasons as to why the works deserve to be published in the AGRIBUSINESS JOURNAL.

The review process

Each submitted manuscript is read by editorial staffs. Only those articles that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent for full peer review. Those articles will be assessed by the editors to match sufficient general interests or otherwise inappropriate articles are rejected promptly based on internal and external advices from reviewer specialists in the fields.

The potential manuscripts to our readership interest are sent for the next review at least by two reviewers. The editors then take a decision based on the reviewers' recommendation.

Peer-reviewer Selection

Reviewer selection is essential for publication process based on many factors, including expertises, reputations, specific recommendations and our experiences of reviewing the publication process.  Furthermore, we ensure the potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to be reviewed.

Writing the review

The main purpose of the review is to provide the editors with the information needed to determine the accepted manuscripts. The review should also advise the authors as to how they can rewrite for better article to comply with editorial requirements. As far as possible, the negative reviews, the weaknesses of their manuscripts should be explained to the authors, so that rejected authors can understand the basis for the decision and see in broad terms what needs to be done to improve the manuscripts. This is secondary to the other functions, however, and referees should not feel obliged to provide detailed, constructive advice to the authors of papers that do not meet the criteria for the journal (as outlined in the letter from the editor when asking for the review).

Anonymity

We conduct double-blind review so  authors and reviewers are unknown each other. Unless the reviewers feel so strongly to identify the authors, nonetheless, we prefer that reviewers are anonymous throughout the review process and beyond.

Peer-review publication policies

All contributions submitted to the specialists for education area that are selected for peer-review. No less than two selected reviewers read the propective articles.

Ethics and security

AGRIBUSINESS JOURNAL editors may seek advice about submitted papers not only from technical reviewers but also on any aspect of a paper that raises concerns. These may include, for example, ethical issues or issues of access to data or materials. Very occasionally, concerns may also relate to the implications to society of publishing a paper, including threats to security. In such circumstances, advice will usually be sought simultaneously with the technical peer-review process. Overall, publishing decisions, the ultimate decision as to whether to publish is the responsibility of the editor of the journal concerned.
