A Brief Overview of ICIEVE 2021 Review Process

A group of reviewers with good reputation of international publication are going to be assigned to perform a rigorous reviewing process for the manuscripts of ICIEVE 2021 using Konfrenzi Automated Conference System. Prior to the review process, all the reviewers are to be briefed by Prof. Ade Gafar Abdullah on a virtual meeting regarding important points to review including the content, the systematic writing structure, and the language readability of the papers. Each reviewer is going to receive 4 – 5 through the submission system. They are then given two weeks to finish their review process and given a certain amount of incentive once they finish their task. After the deadline, the reviewed manuscripts are sent to the participants (authors) using the system through their personal account. The authors are to be given two weeks to revise their manuscripts and send them back to the committee using their account. Papers whose revision is in accordance with the reviewers’ comments will go into final editing process (paper template layout checking, proofreading, etc.) and those which need further revision will go into the second round of review process. All the manuscripts and other required data are submitted to the publisher after they pass final editing.
