Peer Review Process
Articles submitted to the Clute Institute for possible journal publication are subjected to a double-blind, peer review process.
After acknowledging receipt, articles are initially reviewed by the editor to ensure suitability for review. Articles deemed ready for review are then forwarded to two outside reviewers. Articles deemed not suitable for further review or inappropriate are rejected.
The review process is completed within three weeks for expedited reviews and within six weeks for standard reviews. Authors have up to one year to comply with editor and reviewer concerns. Accepted articles are typically published within two to three months.
The Journal of Business & Economics Research is published monthly. The months of distribution are: January, February, March, April, May, June, July, August, September, October, November, and December.
Open Access Policy
