Peer Review Process

Mong. J. Chem. follows the double-blind peer-review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. All submitted manuscripts are subjected to an intensive peer review in consultation with members of the journal’s editorial board and independent external referees (usually 2-3 reviewers).

Reviewers are asked to evaluate a manuscript for:

  • Suitability in terms of content and novelty;
  • Coverage of appropriate existing literature;
  • Adequacy of methodology, analysis, and interpretation;
  • Relative importance;
  • Language of composition

All manuscripts are assessed within a suitable time and the decision based on all the peer reviewers’ comments, taken by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief.

Submissions from the Editor-in-Chief will undergo independent peer-review and will be submitted to another editor for a decision on acceptance.

The average duration of manuscript processing from submission to the final decision is 9-10 weeks.
