Peer Review Policy

The COSMIC JOURNAL OF PHYSICS (CJP) is a peer-reviewed journal that publishes original research articles on all aspects of physics, including astrophysics, particle physics, nuclear physics, and condensed matter physics. The journal also publishes review articles and special issues on specific topics.

The CJP peer review policy is based on the following principles:

  • Fairness: All manuscripts are reviewed fairly and anonymously by at least two experts in the field.
  • Expertise: Reviewers are selected based on their expertise in the subject matter of the manuscript.
  • Timeliness: Reviews are completed in a timely manner, typically within 2-4 weeks.
  • Constructiveness: Reviews are constructive and provide specific feedback to the authors on how to improve their manuscript.

The CJP uses a double-blind peer review process, meaning that the identities of the authors and reviewers are not known to each other. This helps to ensure that the review process is fair and impartial.

Once a manuscript has been submitted to the CJP, it is assigned to an editor who oversees the peer review process. The editor selects two reviewers based on their expertise in the subject matter of the manuscript. The reviewers are asked to provide their assessment of the manuscript's originality, significance, and scientific rigor. The reviewers are also asked to provide specific feedback to the authors on how to improve their manuscript.

After the reviews have been completed, the editor makes a decision on whether to accept, reject, or revise the manuscript. If the manuscript is accepted, it is published in the CJP. If the manuscript is rejected, the authors are provided with feedback from the reviewers. If the manuscript is revised, the authors are asked to address the reviewers' concerns. The revised manuscript is then sent back to the reviewers for their assessment. This process continues until the editor is satisfied with the quality of the manuscript and makes a final decision on whether to accept or reject it.

The CJP peer review policy is designed to ensure that the journal publishes high-quality research articles that make a significant contribution to the field of physics.
