Editorial Policies

  • Peer review process

    Journal of Resources and Ecology (JRE) is a double-blind peer-reviewed academic journal, accepts research articles, reviews, subject reports, academic activities and proceedings, information and special issues/topics. The manuscript must be written in English and should have been neither published nor submitted for publication elsewhere. The strict peer-review process can guarantee the academic level and raises the reputation of the journal. 
    All published articles in JRE are peer-reviewed and all submitted manuscripts follow the process outlined below.
    Initial manuscript evaluation
    All manuscripts submitted for publication in JRE are firstly evaluated by the editors in the Editorial Office or Editorial Board. The manuscript should relate with the aims and scopes of the journal, otherwise, it will be rejected.
    Reviewer evaluation
    After initial evaluation, the manuscripts are sent to at least two reviewers, who are determined by the editors and/or Editorial Board according to their expertise.
    Reviewers are asked to evaluate the manuscript’s originality, methodology, contribution to the literature, presentation of results and support for the conclusions, and appropriate referencing of previous relevant studies. Reviewers might accept, reject or require a revision for style and/or content.
    Final evaluation
    The authors will be requested, before final acceptance, to revise and return their manuscripts according to the reviewers’ suggestions, comments or criticisms for improvement of the quality. Failure to return the manuscript revised strictly following the editor’s requirements in time will significantly delay processing of the manuscript. 
    After revision of the opinions of the reviewers, the final acceptance or rejection rests with the Editorial Board, who reserves the right to refuse any material for publication. The decisions on acceptance, revision, or rejection are made within three months of submission, and the decision letter will be sent to the first author and corresponding author’s E-mail address. 
    The accepted papers will be usually published in a chronological order.
