Editorial Workflow

The process from submitting the manuscript to publication

The Journal of Nonlinear Sciences and Applications is a peer-reviewed journal dedicated to publishing the highest quality research. Our reviewers are selected from a wide range of experts from around the world to ensure a broad and authoritative perspective in every article we review. To maintain objectivity, the journal's editor does not participate in the peer review process, except in rare cases where the editor-in-chief adds his or her insights to the review process. This structure is designed to ensure that all articles are reviewed fairly, rigorously, and by the most knowledgeable people in their respective fields.

The entire editorial workflow is handled via the OS. Each article is first evaluated by the editor-in-chief for the originality and scientific rigor of its research. If it passes this first test, the editor-in-chief forwards the manuscript to the most suitable editor depending on the subject matter and availability. 


I. Editor decides on the procedure

The editor rejects the manuscript if 
a) He/She finds the manuscript is of unsatisfactory quality or 
b) The manuscript subject matter does not suit the journal's content. 
If the editor decides not to reject the manuscript, he or she forwards it to at least two peer reviewers for assessment. The editor of JNSA assigns independent referees and then makes a decision based on their reports, with the final decision made by the editor-in-chief

II. Peer review process

The manuscript is assessed by peer reviewers. After assessing the manuscript, the peer reviewers send their reports to the editor. The peer reviewers give a recommendation as to the further course of action. 
The editor decides on the further course of action. The manuscript is
a) Published unchanged. 
b) Published following minor alterations or minor revision. The authors are requested to produce and submit a final version of the manuscript with the required amendments.
c) Reassessed following major alterations or major revision.
The authors are requested to produce and submit a version of the manuscript with the required amendments. The manuscript is sent to peer reviewers for reassessment. The peer-review process begins anew.
d) Rejected
When the editor does not initiate any other changes, the editor makes a suggestion, and then the editor-in-chief makes the final decision.
The final decision generally lies with the editor-in-chief.
