Peer Review Process

The practice of peer review is to ensure that good paper is published. To maintain a high-quality journal with robust publishing standards and editorial integrity, all papers to be published in this journal will undergo rigorous peer review process with the help of our institutional based academic editors around the globe. The review process for papers is blind peer review. Our referees play a crucial role in maintaining the high standards of AETE. However, special issues, conference proceedings or both may have different peer review procedures involving, for example, Guest Editors, conference organisers or scientific committees. Contributors to these projects may receive full details of the peer review process on request from the editorial office.
