    About Journal of Labor and Society & Peer-Reviewing Process

    The Journal of Labor and Society is a peer-reviewed academic journal. A double-blind peer review system is applied in the journal. The manuscripts submitted to the journal are first checked by the editor-in-chief and then by the field editors by hiding the author information in terms of compliance with the Journal’s scope, academic ethics, and grammar rules. If a manuscript does not comply with these criteria, the author(s) notify by the editor-in-chief via e-mail.

    Following the review made by the field editors, the accepted manuscripts are submitted to the Editorial Board and are sent separately to two reviewers who are known for their scientific studies in the field. The reviewers basically review by filling a manuscript evaluation form and decide one of the following: "may published without revision", "may published with minor/major revision" or "rejection". In line with the reviewer reports, the authors may be asked to make some revisions in their manuscripts. The reviewer’s reports are checked by the field editors and in case of any hesitation, field editors have options such as to propose a new reviewer and submitting it to the editorial board's opinion. The final decision on publishing the manuscript belongs to the Editorial Board or the editor-in-chief. Any information and reviewer reports regarding the decision of the Editorial Board and/or the editor-in-chief are sent to the author's e-mail by the editor-in-chief.

    The phases of the reviewing process are pursued by the editor based on the confidentiality of the authors and reviewers.

    The reviewer reports are kept in the Journal archives for five years. For unspecified issues, the Journal secretariat can be called.
