Keeping Certain Reviewers Out of the Reviewing Process
The authors have the right to ask the Editor not to assign their manuscripts to certain reviewers due to conflict of interest or other ethical issues.
Besides, the Editor is to not send any manuscript to those reviewers,
● with whom the author(s) has/have shared publication(s) previously,
● who helped the author(s) in reading drafts of the given manuscript,
● who experienced problems with the author(s) beforehand,
● who may financially benefit from the publication of the given manuscript,
● who are working in the same institution (departments) with the author(s)
Withdrawing a Manuscript
The authors have the right to withdraw their manuscript before its publication. If they would like to do so they need to fill in the “Article Withdrawal Form”, sign it, and sent JIRTE for approval. Only those manuscripts obtaining the approval of the Editorial Board can be sent to other journals for publication.
