Peer Review Process:

    Double blind peer reviewing: Journal of Human Environment and Health Promotion (JHEHP) is a peer reviewed journal and the manuscripts follow strict double blind reviewing policy to ensure neutral evaluation. All manuscripts will be acknowledged upon submission to the journal office provided that they have complied with all basic criteria. Each submitted manuscript is assessed by editor-in-chief, at first for its quality, accuracy, novelty, relevance and significance. If the manuscript meets the minimum standards, it enters the double blind peer review process. If submitted manuscript is considered out of journal's scope or inappropriate to publish, it will be rejected or returned to corresponding author without entering the peer-review process. According to scope of manuscript, it will then be sent to related section editor. The manuscript will then be sent to three or more reviewers of the same field. All the selected reviewers should be a faculty member in an academic organization or university around the world. The other important criteria for the reviewers are their suitable experiences in peer-reviewing, perfect academic skills, and effective international collaboration. All the reviewers must be advanced and proficient in English language levels. Authors have the right to communicate to the editor if they do not wish their manuscript to be reviewed by a particular reviewer because of potential conflicts of interest. The author can also suggest the name of possible competent reviewers but it is up to the editor to accept it. The whole peer-review process depends on receiving referees' comments and revising the manuscripts based on comments to the author. Final decision pertaining to each manuscript is determined by editor-in-chief and after that the decision will be immediately sent to the corresponding author. Editor can reject manuscript at any time before publication even after acceptance if concerns arise about the integrity of the work. In the peer review process, research protocols and plans for statistical analysis will be reviewed. According to COPE guidelines, manuscripts are reviewed as confidential documents. Since peer review is confidential, review or information about the review are not shared with anyone without the agreement of the editors and authors involved. This applies both during and after publication.
     Revision: Manuscripts may be returned to the corresponding author for modification of the scientific content and/or for language corrections. Revised manuscript and a letter listing point-for-point response to the reviewers must be submitted to the editor and must be accompanied by a copy of the original version. Suggestion by the editor about resubmission does not imply that a revised version will necessary be accepted. If a manuscript that is returned to the authors for modification is not resubmitted within two months it will be regarded as having been withdrawn and any revised version received subsequently will be treated as a new manuscript and the date of receipt will be altered accordingly. Authors who resubmit a manuscript that has previously been rejected must provide the original manuscript and a letter explaining in detail how the manuscript has been modified.
        Proofs: A computer printout will be sent to the corresponding author to be checked for only typographical errors and other essential small changes before publication in order to avoid any mistakes. Major alternations to the text cannot be accepted at this stage. Proofs must be returned to the editor within 7 days of receipt.
      English language editing: English language editing will be done by expert/editors. However manuscript must be of good quality English at the time of submission, otherwise it will be rejected at the initial stage. The English language editing will be done free of cost. We have taken this step to help the authors who do not bear the cost of English language editing.

         Authors will be able to check the progress of their manuscript through the submission system at any time by logging into author account.
