IJCLSI will change its peer review model to open peer review in the second half of 2022:


Perspectives on the peer review process have shifted from anonymity between authors and reviewers as a means of preventing bias to transparency to allow members of the academic community to jointly review the process. As a result, we found that many of the world's largest and most well-known publishers such as Springer Nature, Frontiers, MDPI, and BMJ have all switched their traditional review models to open peer review.

Therefore, in order to make the article quality assessment process of IJCLSI more efficient, we have decided to change the peer review model of articles submitted for publication in our journal to open peer review from Vol. 9 No. 2 (July-December 2022) onwards. This means that the names of the handling editor, reviewers, and authors will be disclosed to each other throughout the review process. Also, the name of the handling editor and reviewers will also be mentioned in the article once it has been published.
