Before articles are published in the Journal of Multidisciplinary Studies, they are subjected to a double-blind peer-review procedure to verify that they are in good condition and free of plagiarism. The peer-review process includes the examination of a paper by professional scholars on a specific subject, who will make recommendations on whether the paper should be published, whether it should be revised, or if it should be rejected. In a double-blind review, the author’s name is kept secret from the reviewers, and vice versa, in order to maintain the author’s confidentiality. It is the duty of the Editorial Board to appoint peer reviewers for a specific paper that has been presented to the journal for acceptance for publication.
