Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to Journal of Immunology Research will follow a rigorous double-blind peer review process, where reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the process and the peer review  comments will not be published.

1. New manuscripts will first be reviewed by the in-house editor to check whether the manuscripts conform to the scope and the ethical policies of the journal and whether there is plagiarism. Manuscripts that do not conform to the journal’s ethical policies and standards will be rejected directly. Manuscripts that passed the checking will proceed to the next stage.

2. For manuscripts that have been preliminarily reviewed, editors will assign them to experts in the corresponding research field for review. Reviewers are selected from editorial board members or external reviewers. Reviewers should not work at the same institution as any of the authors, or have recently (e.g. within the past 3 years) served as a mentor, close collaborators or joint grant holders.

If a submission contains supplementary materials, the reviewers are also required to evaluate them at the same level as the content of the main manuscript.

3.The Editor-in-Chief or the academic editor designated by the Editor-in-Chief will make a final decision based on the comments(at least 2 per manuscript) of the reviewers:
Accepted, Revisions Required, Resubmit for Review or Rejected

-If the decision is Accepted, the editorial office will directly send the acceptance letter and arrange for the further processing for publication;

-If the decision is Revisions Required, the author should revise and resubmit the manuscript within 7-14 days;

-If the decision is Resubmit for Review, the author will have more time to revise and resubmit for the second round of review until the manuscript is accepted;

-If the decision is Rejected, the in-house editor will directly inform the author of the final decision and archive submission.

Note: Authors may appeal for a rejected submission. The appeal must be made by letter to jir@bilpublishing.com and attach the detailed reasons for the appeal and the point-by-point reply to the reviewers’ comments. The decision of appeal will be given by the Editor-in-Chief or editorial board of the journal according to the relevant information of the article. Decisions on appeals are final without exception.

For all manuscripts accepted for publication, the peer review process will be deemed to be completed. The manuscript will proceed to be copyedited, layout edited and proofread before being published online.
