Peer Review Policy

BJBE is a refereed journal. Upon submission, each paper is examined by the secretary of the editorial board on meeting the formal requirements: length, structure, basic formatting, plagiarism etc. Then, the paper is analyzed by the Editor or the editorial team of the Journal. At this stage, the team decides if the paper fits the scope of the Journal. The editorial team pays attention to the academic value of the paper, its relevance, novelty and validity of the results and conclusions. If the paper does not meet the abovementioned requirements or fails to fit the scope of the Journal, the editorial team may reject the paper without sending it for peer review. In that case, we inform the author about our decision in a timely manner, indicating the weak points of the paper and suggesting alternative platforms, if possible. Other cases for desk rejection may include typos, grammatical errors and poor punctuation; unclear writing; inconsistency and inaccuracy; unclear impact or novelty; the paper is currently under review at another journal; the paper lacks key elements such as the title, authors, affiliations, keywords, main part, references, some tables and figures; language is not sufficient; figures and tables are not clear enough to read; references are very old etc. In case the paper satisfies all the requirements and standards, the Editor arranges it for peer review. The standard peer review period of our Journal lasts 5-7 weeks (from the date when the paper reviewing begins to the final decision of the Editor about the paper acceptance or rejection). We believe that this is an optimal time frame for the reviewers to make a valid and substantial judgment on the paper and provide a proper review report. We have an extensive editorial board and a great team of external reviewers - experts in the field. The Editor selects reviewers with expertise in the field of the paper. Our peer review is "double blind peer reviewing", meaning that neither reviewers nor authors do not know the identity of each other. This helps us to exclude the conflict of interests and avoid any possible bias linked with the peer review process. Reviewers of our journal follow COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available after publication on the BJBE website to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
