Rewiewers Guidelines


A. Individual submission

AUB-SAS is a double-blind peer reviewed journal. Each paper will be subject to peer review process in two phases.

In a first phase, a member of the Executive Editorial Board will preliminary verify the paper if it is drafted according to Author Guidelines and if it falls within one of the areas of interest covered by the journal.

In the second phase, if the paper accomplishes these two prerequisites, it will be sent to two reviewers of the Advisory Editorial Board. The two reviewers will be chosen for each submission based on their academic expertise in the field and the quality of their previous reviews. If they accept the task they will have full access to the submission. The author does not know the name of the reviewers, just as they will not know who wrote the manuscript (double-blind peer review).

Reviews should be extensive and constructive, and reviewers should avoid making any derogatory and unprofessional comments. If, in the opinion of the reviewer, the manuscript is not publishable, the reviewer must make every attempt to provide extensive comments/feedback in regard to why the paper is not acceptable and to provide the authors with constructive directions. This is a professional service that we all provide to our colleagues in the hope of improving the overall quality of work in our discipline. All appropriate comments received are forwarded to the authors without revealing the reviewer’s identity.

The reviewers will fill out the following  


Rate the manuscript:

Put an X on the line next to each factor to rate the manuscript, with an X close to “SD” taken to mean that you strongly disagree with the statement, and an X close to “SA” taken to mean that you strongly agree with the statement.  If a factor is not applicable, then put an X on „NOT APPLICABLE”.  You may add comments to justify your answer or modify the measure.
Strongly                      Strongly
Disagree                       Agree

The final result of the peer review process will be send to the author by the Editorial Board. This process normally takes no more 20 days.
B. Conference proceedings

The conference proceedings will be published in AUB-SAS only if the organizing committee proves that it can provide its own evaluation standard for papers which must be compatible with our double-blind peer review process and our Author Guidelines. In this case, the responsibility for the peer review process belongs to the conference organizing committee; our the Executive Editorial Board just will verify if paper is drafted according to Author Guidelines and if it falls within one of the areas of interest covered by the journal.
