About the Journal

Peer Review Process
JECS operates a strictly anonymous peer review process in which the reviewer’s name is withheld from the author and, the author’s name from the reviewer. The reviewer may at their own discretion opt to reveal their name to the author in their review but our standard policy practice is for both identities to remain concealed. All manuscripts are reviewed as rapidly as possible.
