Peer Review Process

The peer-review process is an essential part of the publication process, which improves the manuscripts our journals publish. Not only does peer review provide an independent assessment of the importance and technical accuracy of the results described, but the feedback from referees conveyed to authors with the editors' advice frequently results in manuscripts being refined so that their structure and logic are more readily apparent to readers.

All manuscripts received by the editor of Community Research Of Epidemiology Journal  (CORE) will be reviewed by peer reviewers according to the manuscript scope (at least 2 people) with a double-blind policy. The first initial review takes at least 2 weeks up to 2 months. The review process will take at least 15 days to complete for the first round. The review process can pass more than one review round. The final decision will be taken by the editor-in-chief based on the comments from the reviewers in the editorial board forum.

Publication Ethics

The Editorial considers retracting a publication if:

  1. They have clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation or experimental error).
  2. The findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper crossreferencing, permission, or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication).
  3. It constitutes plagiarism (high similarity with other published items).
  4. It reports unethical research.

The mechanism of retraction follows the Retraction Guidelines of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE).

Authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted manuscripts, because the withdrawals are a waste of valuable resources that editors and referees spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscript, money, and works invested by the publisher.

plagiarism policy

  1. Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed;
  2. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted;
  3. An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable;
  4. Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Working Process:

  1. Editorial Team checking manuscript on offline and online database manually (checking proper citation and quotation).
  2. Every submitted paper which passes this step will be checked by Turnitin to identify any plagiarism before being reviewed by reviewers and before the manuscript be accepted. The similarity index for plagiarism check is pegged below 25%.
