The information regarding the authors of the manuscripts that are accepted after the assessment of the referees will be added by the editors during publication.
- Each manuscript submitted to the system of JAVStudies is firstly evaluated by the editor or assistant editors in terms of relevance to the principles of spelling and publication. At the end of this evaluation, if there are any corrections to be made, the manuscript will be returned by the editors to the author to make the necessary changes.
- The manuscripts that do not correspond to the principles of spelling will not be forwarded to referees.
- The names of the referees and authors are confidential to each other and the system of ”blind review” is employed during the review process.
- The names of the referees and authors are confidential to each other.

If a manuscript receives one favorable and one unfavorable report, it is forwarded to a third referee whose decision determines the final outcome. Manuscripts that receive two unfavorable reviews are automatically rejected.
- Revised and resubmitted manuscripts may be forwarded to the initial reviewers who determine within a week whether their concerns are successfully addressed.
