Editorial Process of The Boromarajonani College of Nursing Uttaradit Journal

    To maintain  quality scientific contents in all journals , we follow the below standard editorial process.

Step-1

  • The entire editorial process is performed by using the automated online Thai Journal Online (ThaiJo).
  • Once a manuscript is submitted to the Thai Journal Online (ThaiJo) it will generate a paper id for the particular submission for future reference of the author and acknowledgment will be sent to the author for the receipt of the submission.

Step-2

  • The next step the Editor-in-Chief assigns the manuscript to an associate editor for review based on his or her research interest and expertise.

Step-3

  • If the associate editor determines that the manuscript is not of sufficient quality to go through the normal review process or if the subject of the manuscript is not appropriate to the journal, the editor rejects the manuscript with no further processing. The rejection letter is sent to the corresponding author. If the editor determines that the submitted manuscript is of sufficient quality and falls within the scope of the journal, he or she assigns the manuscript to a minimum of 2 external reviewers for peer-review.

Step-4

  • The agreed reviewers submit their review reports on the manuscripts along with their recommendations of one of the following actions to the associate editor:
      • Accepted: Without any change.
      • Revision: Minor Changes/Major Changes.
      • Reject: Manuscript is seriously flawed or the finding is already published in the literature.
  • Any manuscript must be positively recommended by one or more (usually two ) external reviewers along with the editor in charge of the manuscript in order for it to be accepted for publication in the journal. This is to ensure a quality, fair, and unbiased peer-review process for every manuscript submitted to the journal.

Step-5

  • When all reviewers have submitted their reports, the Editor-in-Chief can make editorial decisions:
      • Accepted: Without any change.
      • Revision: Either minor or major Changes be made for a re-evaluation of the manuscript.
      • Reject: Manuscript is seriously flawed and cannot be revised for a possible acceptance.

The editor cannot assign himself or herself the role as an external reviewer of the manuscript. Also, if two of the reviewers recommend rejecting the manuscript, it is highly recommended that the manuscript be rejected.

Step-6

  • If the final decision of the Editor-in-Chief is to accept the manuscript for publication, the editor-in-chief notifies the author of the decision, and the manuscript is moved to the production process.
