Peer Review Process

The author/s would initially register to journal system and follow through-steps forward introduced by paper submission user interface. Manuscript (MS) and suggested three relevant independent referees with names and addresses of them also are required. MS delivery mail will be sent to the author whenever possible within a week. The editor in chief excludes those MSs from the following peer review process, which are apparently not suitable for publication in Eurasian Journal of Forest Science. We inform you, if this is the case with the MS.



The editorial board of our journal identifies two experts for the MS. After they have approved to read and evaluate the MS, the MS sent to referees. We ask the referees to let us know their observations and opinions on the MS within approximately 4 weeks. The entire review process may last not more than 3 months. The editor informs the author about the acceptance situation of the MS for publication. If not accepted by both of referees then the MS is decided to be rejected. If the MS is accepted by both of the referees then the author is asked to take the recommendations of the referees into account, and he can subsequently submit the final version of the MS to journal. After final evaluation made by editors the Acceptance Letter is sent to the author.


If the MS is accepted by one referee and rejected by the other one; then the paper is sent to the third referee for review. Under the condition rejection comment of the third referee the MS is decided to be rejected. If the MS is accepted by the third referee then the author is asked to take the recommendations of the referees into account, and he can subsequently submit the final version of the MS to journal. After final evaluation made by editors the Acceptance Letter is sent to the author.


Note that publishing in Eurasian Journal of Forest Science is free of charge.  

After acceptance letter sent to the authors, the layout made up version will be sent to the author for the proof-reading on which corrections and amendments can directly made on the electronic version of the manuscript with Track Changes in WORD or ADDED NOTES in PDF files to let us track the changes. Immediately after received the manuscript then the publication identity will be released to the author.
