Peer review is the process by which journals scrutinize and regulate the quality of content they publish, by inviting experts in the field to evaluate scholarly works and its objectives to ensure a high quality of published work.

Article submitted by the authors to IJTRET undergo the following steps:
  • Manuscripts submitted to a journal first go through an initial screening by the editorial team.
  • Those that clear the screening are sent to subject experts for peer review.
  • Peer reviewers independently make a recommendation to the journal editor as to whether the manuscript should be rejected or accepted.
  • The journal editor considers all the feedback from peer reviewers and makes an informed decision to accept or reject the manuscript.

  • There are three common types of peer review for journal publication:
      Single blind: names of reviewers are not revealed to authors
