Peer Review Process
The suitability of manuscripts for publication on Medical Laboratory Analysis and Sciences Journal is judged by peer reviewers and editorial board. All the review process are conducted in a double-blind review. Editor in Chief handles all correspondence with the author and makes the final decision as to whether the paper is recommended for acceptance, rejection, or needs to be returned to the author for revision.
Editor in Chief, Managing Editorial and Editorial Board will evaluate the submitted papers on the prequalification step for suitability of further review process. The manuscripts will be evaluated by two qualified peer reviewers selected by Editor in Chief. The peer reviewers should examine the manuscript and return it with their recommendation to the Editor in Chief as soon as possible, maximal within 4 weeks. The Editor in Chief decides the acceptance or rejection of the paper based upon their reports/recommendation. After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decision based on reviewers recommendation:
> Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
> Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
> Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. It will require a second round of review, however.
> Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.
