Manuscript Evaluation
    Papers to be published in the journal will go through a rigorous reviewing process to ensure that they meet the journal standards. This is a two stage process:
a). Preliminary assessment: Only those manuscripts which in the Editor's opinion have met the minimum requirements will proceed to the formal review stage.
b). Formal review: Each manuscript will be reviewed by at least two independent reviewers who have expertise in the relevant fields and are at arms length from the authors. Reviewers will evaluate the quality of the manuscripts based on the specified "evaluation criteria". The review process is expected to complete within two to three months (it may however take longer time depending on the quality of the original writing).

c). Outcome of review: A paper to be accepted by the journal must have positive recommendations from at least two reviewers.
Based on the outcome of the reviewing process, a research paper may be accepted for publishing in IJGE or sent back for revisions. In case of revision, a paper must satisfactorily address all issues raised during review before it is finally accepted. The Editor-in-Chief will make a final decision on acceptance or rejection and inform directly the corresponding author the outcome of the manuscript. The decision by the Editor-in-Chief is final and not negotiable.

Important Notice to authors:
    It is the responsibility of authors themselves to ensure the manuscript meet the requirements of the journal.

    We have however recognized the difficulty experienced by authors whose first language is not English and now offer Professional English Editing Services through our publisher to make your paper easier to read and to increase its chance of acceptance.
    If authors require help to improve English translation and/or technical writing, Premium Writing Services may also be available at an additional fee to be determined case by case.
