Peer Review Procedure

Textile & Leather Review is committed to peer review integrity and upholding the highest standards of review. Once your manuscript has been assessed for suitability by the editor, it will then be double blind peer reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees.

Step 1: Editors assessment – Peer review begins with submitting your manuscript to the journal. The journal editors will decide if the manuscript is suitable based on the journal’s aim and scope and template norms. The editors might reject the manuscript immediately; otherwise, the manuscript will proceed to the next stage, and into peer review.

Step 2: First round of peer review – The editor will contact researchers or academics who are experts in your field, through the Editorial Advisory Board, to read your manuscript, and suggest whether to publish your manuscript in the journal. They make an assessment of your work in terms of its originality, suitability of the description of your study design and methodology that allows replication of your work by others, appropriate and clear presentation of your study results and reliability and significance of your conclusions. Your manuscript needs to meet high review standards in order to be published in the journal.

You will then be provided with a feedback on your manuscript, telling you if any changes need to be made before it can be published. Please note that the final editorial decision on a manuscript and the choice of who to invite to review is always at the editor’s discretion.

Step 3: Revise and resubmit – You can then amend your manuscript based on the reviewer’s comments, resubmitting it with any or all changes made.

Step 4: Accepted – If everything works as described, submitted manuscript will be published.
