Peer Review Process

Terms and Conditions of Assessment Process

"International Journal of Robotics, Theory and Applications" accepts only articles that examine and evaluate new scientific findings in the fields of robotics and mechatronics and arbitration and deals its developments, written in accordance with scientific principles. The editorial staff checks to establish whether the received article is compatible with the purposes and the approaches of the Journal and primarily refers it to two expert referees on the subject of the article to evaluate it. If the referees both approve that the article meets the criteria specified in the checklist then it will be placed in the articles waiting list for publication. If one of the judges approve the article and the other reject it, the opinion of a third referee will be asked and the majorities’ opinion will be the criterion for acceptance and a decision will be made finally by the editorial staff.

Selection of articles for publication in the journal after the arbitration process is the responsibility of the editorial staff, so the referee’s opinions will be reviewed for decision-making.

The editor in chief may also decide on the acceptability of the article for publication.

As a result the editorial board and editor may reject diagnosed poorly reviewed articles.

There are no article processing charges or submission fee.
