Peer Review Process

The Cross-Cultural Studies Review follows the best practices of peer review as set by the COPE Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers, found here:

All research articles undergo a detailed double blind peer-review process, by a minimum of two external peer-reviewers. Once an article has been submitted, the editors of the journal make an initial decision about the appropriateness of the article for the journal. They will also run the article through a plagiarism-checking software package such as PlagScan. If this is a positive assessment, the editors will engage two external reviewers of an appropriate position and with the proper expertise. Once the initial reviews have been submitted, the editors of the journal will take them under consideration. Potential further revisions to the article must be undertaken to the satisfaction of the reviewers and editorial board. If necessary, additional reviewers may be engaged. During the whole process steps are taken to ensure the confidentiality of all parties involved.
