Manuscript Selection

The Canadian Center of Science and Education (CCSE) has developed a manuscript-selection system called the Star System for Journal Quality.

Step 1: Basic Check

The editor or editorial assistant checks a received manuscript to determine whether it fits the journal’s aim and scope. Manuscripts out of the journal’s scope are rejected. Articles published fully or partly in other publications/websites are not reviewed or accepted.

Step 2: Similarity Check

Please be aware that we check all submitted manuscripts for plagiarism. We use CrossCheck (powered by iThenticate, the leading plagiarism-detection system) to check for similarity to previously published documents. All manuscripts containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, and dishonesty are rejected.

Step 3: Peer Review

We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and authors' identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take 4-10 weeks. In some rare cases, according to the recommendations from editors and reviewers, a second round of peer review may be initiated. Please see a sample of Result of Review.

Step 4: Acceptance/Rejection Decision

The decision to accept an article is based on the average score given by reviewers. The reviewers grade a submitted manuscript on a scale of 1 to 5. To be accepted for publication, the manuscript must obtain an average score not less than 2.5 (some journals require a higher score). However, we may reject a manuscript with a score higher than 2.5 when an editor or reviewer thinks it is not suitable for publication.
