JAEPP Peer Review Procedure

Over the years JAEPP created a list of active reviewers who already published their papers in the journal or are part of the Dr. McGee extensive network of collaborators.

Every reviewer has a profile with a short biography, University affiliation, and email address.

JAEPP promotes a rigorous single-blind peer-review procedure on the basis of scientific validity and the technical quality of the paper. After the initial screen, each submission will be reviewed by at least two reviewers.

 After the single-blind peer review procedure the corresponding author receives one of the following decisions:

-Accept the manuscript as submitted;

-Accept it with minor revision;

-Accept it with major revision; and

-Reject the manuscript because it does not meet the journal criteria.

Anti-Plagiarism Policy

Plagiarism is not acceptable in the JAEPP submissions and publications. After the submission, authors are requested to declare the originality of their work by properly citing, re-using, or copying previous publications. If plagiarism is detected during the peer review process, the manuscript would be rejected. If plagiarism is detected after publication, the publisher has the right to issue an erratum/corrigendum or retract the paper.

The JAEPP Editorial Office scans the content of the papers for plagiarism using specialized software.


At JAEPP, we consider the language aspect of the papers of particular relevance. Therefore, a native language speaker assesses the language aspect of each paper. If decided proofreading is mandatory and may be also requested after the peer review.

The JAEPP editorial office may recommend proofreading services. However, authors are always informed that they are not obliged to use the suggested services but can choose other ones.

Conflict of Interest

Authors, reviewers, or editorial members have to disclose every situation or connection, which could potentially affect the impartial review and publication procedure.

In case a member of the editorial board is author or co-author of a submission, the peer review procedure is double-blind in order to avoid conflict of interest.


Article Processing Charges

The journal does not apply any submissions or publication charges.
