Peer review is an essential part in the publication process, ensuring that IJDI maintains high quality standards for its published papers. We are sincerely grateful to scholars who give their time to peer-review papers submitted to IJDI.

Manuscripts submitted to IJDI are reviewed by at least two external experts. Reviewers are asked to evaluate the quality of the manuscript and to provide a recommendation to the editor in chief on whether a manuscript can be accepted in present form, accepted after minor revisions, requires reconsideration after major revisions, or should be rejected.

As part of the assessment, reviewers will be asked:

  • To evaluate the originality, significance, quality of the presentation and scientific soundness.
  • To rate the overall merit and English level of the manuscript;
  • To check the reference list of the manuscript and check if there are updated reference and check if there are inappropriate self-citations;
  • To provide an overall recommendation for the submitted paper; based on a detailed and constructive review report.
