Author Guidelines

The reviewing process of the manuscripts sent to JTDED proceeds following these steps:

  1. The manuscript is reviewed by the Editor to see whether its aims, subject, content, and style of writing fit the requirements of JTDED (Maximum 10 days). The manuscript is approved by the Editor will be sent to Field Editor. Manuscripts did not approve by the Editor send back to their authors/owners for revision and resubmission.
  2. The examination/review of the Field Editor results in the decision of either sending the manuscript to reviewers or returning them to their authors/owners for revision (Maximum 10 days).
  3. The selection processes of reviewers are based on expertise and experience in the relevant field. The reviewers are given 25 days to review a manuscript sent to them. 
  4. If a reviewer thinks that she/he cannot complete the reviewing process within the given time, she/he can ask the Editor for extra time or let the Editor know that she/he is not being able to review the manuscript due to various reasons, such as the shortage of time. Doing these things help the Editor to assign new reviewers without losing too much time.
  5. If a reviewer cannot review the manuscript assigned to her/him within the given scope of time, she/he is sent a reminder e-mail with an additional 15 days for completing the reviewing process. If she/he does not return the reviewed manuscripts within the additional time, that manuscript may withdraw from her/him. After then, it is assigned to another reviewer.
  6. If there is a divergence of opinion between the two reviewers (one accepting the manuscript and the other rejecting it), the field editor examines the review reports and compares and contrasts the reviewers’ critics and viewpoints and their reasoning to arrive at a decision. 
  7. If the Field Editor does not decide after examining the reviewer reports, the manuscript is assigned to a third reviewer.
  8. The decision for a manuscript is supposed to be given within the first 80-100 days. Then the authors are informed about the decision. The accepted papers are to be published in the following issue of JTDED.


  • The principle of transparency is at the core of the correspondence among the authors, the Editor, and the Field Editor in JTDED. However, the principle of privacy of the authors’ identity has to be kept safe in correspondence between the Editor or the Field Editor and the reviewers. Besides, the identities of the reviewers are not included in the reports sent to the authors.
  • If a reviewer thinks that the manuscript assigned to her/him contains any problem related to research ethics or the data used in the study, or she/he believes that there is a conflict of interest between her/him and the author(s), she/he has to share these issues with the Editor before commencing the process of reviewing. 
  • To attain an integrated and coherent reviewing process, and to contribute to the author’s academic development, the Editor may ask the reviewers to read each other’s reports and then comment on the report she/he read. In the case of this situation, the names and identities of the reviewers have to be kept anonymous.
