Article Review Process
At Expert Journal of Finance, the identities of the Reviewers and Authors remain anonymous, thus this evaluation takes the form of a double blind peer-review process, which occurs in two stages, as follows:
Firstly, every submitted article undergoes a plagiarism evaluation and then, if the article does not exhibit high levels of plagiarism, the finance paper is reviewed by 1 or 2 Editors.
The Editors evaluate aspects related to the novelty of the paper, match to the journal’s topics, organization and structure, readability, relevancy of cited references, among other criteria. Articles that are already published, fully or partly, in other publications or websites are neither reviewed, nor accepted. Based on their grades, the Editors decide if the paper should be further assessed by one or more Reviewer.
Secondly, the submitted finance manuscript will be verified by at least one Reviewer for a comprehensive evaluation of the paper, that includes assessment of the study’s importance, contribution to existing literature, design and analysis of research, results’ interpretation and discussion.
The evaluation decision of article acceptance, acceptance with minor editorial changes, acceptance with major revisions, or article rejection is based on the average score given by Reviewers. Both the Editors and the Reviewers grade a submitted article for each evaluation criterion on a scale of 1 to 5, considering the fact that 1 = Poor, 2 = Below Average, 3 = Average, 4 = Good, 5=Excellent. To be accepted for publication, the article must obtain an overall score of at least 3.
Our main objectives related to the rigorous double peer review process are to help Authors improve their work, using insights from experienced Editors and Reviewers, and to publish valuable articles that expand on a particular field study.
