Peer Review

Reviewing a manuscript written by a fellow scientist is a privilege. However, it is a time-consuming responsibility. Hence, MEJC’s editorial board, authors, and audiences appreciate your willingness to accept this responsibility and your dedication. MEJC adheres to a double-blind peer-review process that is rapid, fair, and ensures a high quality of articles published. In so doing, MEJC needs reviewers who can provide insightful and helpful comments on submitted manuscripts with a turnaround time of about 6 weeks. Maintaining MEJC as a scientific journal of high quality depends on reviewers with a high level of expertise and an ability to be objective, fair, and insightful in their evaluation of manuscripts.
