3.1 Editors Review
Registered articles will go through a review process by the editorial department of the SSRI to examine the suitability, completeness and preliminary quality of the articles according to the journal's standards (as specified in item 1.1) within 30 days. The editor will notify the author of whether the article needs to be revised or not. If there is no need for revision, the article will be put into the quality review process by reviewers. But if the article still has flaws, the editorial will notify the authors of any revisions needed before being submitted to the evaluation process by reviewers. But if the article cannot be revised to meet the journal’s standards, or if the author does not revise within 30 days after being notified by the editorial, the article will be withdrawn from the review process for publication in the SSRI.
In the preliminary examination process, the editorial staff will organize a system for reviewing the quality of the articles according to various standard issues, especially any plagiarisms contained in the article. The editorial will use programs that are reliable and well-respected in academic circles, which specify that articles must have a redundancy level of not more than 20 percent. If the event that any plagiarism is found in the evaluation process, the editorial will stop the process and contact the main author immediately and request for clarification as "Accept" or "Reject" publication of the article.
3.2 Professional review
The SSRI aims to promote the dissemination of quality studies and research results with standardized and professional processes. Academic work published in the SSRI must pass scrutiny of quality according to the standard criteria used by the reviewers. The editors will typically select three qualified persons with expertise in the field, or issues related to the article, to review the quality of the articles according to academic principles and the standards of the SSRI as stated in article 1.1.
(1) teachers, lecturers, and researchers at least 3 reviewers
(2) students (bachelor's degree, master's degree, and PhD), entrepreneurs or others, at least 2 reviewers
Articles must accord with the research ethics for academic publication in the journal, as will be discussed later in article 3. In the evaluation process, there will be a double-blind review - the author does not know the reviewers and the reviewers do not know the author's name. In this regard, the expert review process must be completed within 90 days. During the review, the reviewers may ask the editorial staff to request additional documents from the authors. For approval for publication, articles must receive agreement from all reviewers.
3.3 Publication approval by editors
In the event that a qualified person has suggestions for revision, the author must revise and complete the amendment according to the recommendations of the experts within 30 days after receiving advice. After the author has revised the article as advised by the reviewers, the editor of the journal will decide whether to approve or reject the publication of the academic work, which is the final step of the consideration process.
