Paper Selection and Publishing Process

a) Submission Acknowledgement

When you submit a manuscript online, you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter sent by the online system automatically. For email submission, the editor or editorial assistant sends an e-mail confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant by email: ijhe@sciedupress.com.

b) Basic Review

After receiving the submission, the editor or editorial assistant checks the paper’s scope, language, bibliography, references, ethics, conflict of interest, etc.. Next a check for the similarity rate is done using CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate. Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected.

The decision to accept or reject an article is made based on the scores provided by the reviewers on this paper. When the average score is ≥2.75/5, the paper would be accepted for publication. In most cases, authors are required to revise the paper according to the comments from the reviewers and editorial staffs. If differences of opinion occur between reviewers, the editor-in-chief will weigh all comments and arrive at a balanced decision based on all comments, or a second round of peer review may be initiated.
