Manuscript Reviewing Process

The manuscripts submitted to JMOS are reviewed by at least two reviewers under the management of journal editor and associate editors who are specialized in various fields of management and organization discipline. All reviews are conducted confidentially through a double-blind reviewing process.

Each manuscript submitted to JMOS is first evaluated by the journal editor in terms of its compliance with the aim, scope and quality of the journal. The manuscript considered suitable in these aspects is directed to one of the associate editors in terms of their area of specialization. The relevant associate editor then evaluates the manuscript for its originality and potential for contribution to the field to figure out its suitability for review. If the associate editor considers the manuscript unsuitable for review, he/she can reject it at this stage. The authors are informed about this decision within two weeks. If the associate editor finds the manuscript suitable for review, he/she selects at least two reviewers consistent with the topics of the manuscript and gets it sent to them for review.        


The evaluation of the manuscripts by reviewers is done based on the following questions:

How original is the purpose of the manuscript?

How new and interesting is what the manuscript says?

To what extent does the manuscript contribute to the existing literature?

To what extent does the manuscript address management and organization problems?

How strong is the theoretical foundation of the manuscript?

How suitable is the method selected and analyses used if the manuscript is empirical?

To what extent are the results of the study appropriately reported?

To what extent are the results discussed in relation to the existing literature?

How significant and interesting are the conclusions drawn from the study?


Once reviewers complete their reviews, the relevant associate editor evaluates the manuscript based on the reviews of the reviewers and makes decision. Once comments and suggestions of the reviewers contradict with one another, the associate editor, taking initiative, can send the manuscript to a third reviewer or makes evaluation and suggestions about which of the comments and suggestions raised by reviewers are more reasonable and/or can add further points. The associate editors make their evaluation and decision in coordination with Editor-in-Chief. Ultimate evaluation and decision is finalized by the joint decision of relevant associate editor and the journal editor. The process of a manuscript evaluation is typically expected to be completed within 60 days for each round.


Digital Archiving and Preservation Policy

Digital preservation is a set of processes and activities that ensure the retrieval and distribution of information now available in digital formats to guarantee continued access for the long term. We do website archiving and use abstracting/indexing services as preservation policy:

As part of the website archiving, all of our electronic content (website, manuscripts, etc.) is stored on two sources. Content on one server is online and accessible to the readers. The copy of the same content is kept as a backup as another source. In case of failure of one server, another source can be made online and website expected to be accessible within less than 48 hours.

Our journal's abstracting/indexing services store essential information about the articles. Thus, the articles are available to access easily both by these systems and journal website’s archive.
