Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to CoGAS must follow the focus and scope, as well as guidelines for CoGAS authors. The submitted manuscript must discuss scientific benefits or novelty according to its focus and scope. The Editor in Chief has the right to reject articles that do not match the theme or requirements of the CoGAS Writing Guidelines. All manuscripts must comply with the CoGAS plagiarism provisions. The editors check the plagiarism detection of articles in this journal using the Turnitin software. Research articles submitted to CoGAS are peer-reviewed with double-blind reviews. The quality of the Peer-reviewed Statements is ensured by thoroughness and integrity, synonymous with peer evaluation of each manuscript by three independent reviewers. Reviewers provide valuable scientific commentary that enhances the content of the manuscript. The final decision on the acceptance of the article will be made by the Editor, on behalf of the Editorial Board in accordance with the reviewer's comments. The publication of accepted articles including the order of published articles will be carried out by the Editor-in-Chief taking into account the order of acceptance dates and the geographical distribution of the authors and their thematic issues.
