Peer Review Process

All submissions to Babylonian Journal of Mechanical Engineering (BJME) will be subject to a single-blind peer review process, where the identity of the reviewers is concealed from the authors. The journal utilizes OJS3 (Open Journal Systems 3) to manage the peer review process efficiently.

To ensure the quality and originality of the published content, all papers are expected to have novel contributions and should not have been previously published or under simultaneous consideration by another academic journal.

Before the papers are sent to the referees, the editorial board will first check if they align with the mission and scope of BJME.

Upon submission, each paper is assigned to a minimum of two independent referees for evaluation and feedback. The single-blind peer review process ensures that the reviewer identities remain undisclosed to the authors, while the authors' identities are known to the reviewers.

In case one of the referees provides a negative feedback on a paper, it will be reevaluated by another referee. If the paper receives a negative feedback from the new referee as well, it will not be accepted for publication in BJME.

Authors may receive corrections or suggestions from the referees, and they are required to make necessary revisions within the prescribed time frame before the final decision on publication is made.

Authors who wish to withdraw their paper from consideration for publication in BJME must submit a written request to the editorial board.

It is the responsibility of the authors to adhere to BJME's writing and style guidelines to ensure the overall writing quality of their papers.

BJME does not pay any copyright fees to authors for published papers.
