This Journal is committed to peer-reviewed integrity and upholding the highest standards of review.

If you have shared an earlier version of your Author's Original Manuscript on a preprint server, please be aware that anonymity cannot be guaranteed.

Review Process
Once submitted, the editor will review each manuscript and if deemed fit for publication on IVRJ, it will be sent to the reviewers for double-blind peer-review, which means the identities of the reviewers and authors are hidden from the reviewers. , and vice versa, during the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are structured in a way that does not reveal their identity. Based on the reviewer's recommendation, the editor will then decide whether the manuscript should be accepted as is, revised or rejected. If two reviews are returned to the editor within the stipulated review period and their comments are consistent, an Editorial decision will be made accordingly. This is to prevent delays or disturbances caused by reviewers.
