The journal uses a double-blind review system and both the reviewer and the author are anonymous. The two reviewers from outside and one editor from the journal are typically involved in reviewing a submission. Once a manuscript meets the RAIS Journal submission and formatting requirements it will be sent to peer reviewers for evaluation. The Editorial Board selects reviewers and makes the final decision on the manuscript. The manuscript may be:

  • Accepted for publication without any changes
  • Accepted for publication with minor changes, with no re-review necessary
  • Accepted for publication after substantial revision and additional review 
  • Rejected

Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified by email. When the reviewers have completed their work, the Editorial Board, examines their comments and decides whether the paper is ready to be published, needs another round of revisions, or should be rejected. When the manuscript is in its final form, it is approved for publication and the final files are routed to Journal staff for publication.
