Before to submit your manuscript in this journal, it is highly important to read the instructions given below and prepare your manuscript according to the given guidelines.
The author can submit the manuscript in different categories. It depends upon the researcher in which category or which type of research he/she has conducted. EURAASS accepts the following categories of research work for its different journals:
All the submitted manuscripts are initially examined and reviewed by one of the editors. At this stage, if the paper deemed suitable according to the scope and the guidelines of the journal, the editor may send it to reviewers for review process. If the editor feels that the submitted manuscript is not of high enough quality or not relevant to the journal according to its scope, the editor may rejects it at initial stage. The rejection at initial stage provides the opportunity to the authors to consider their manuscript for another journal.
Manuscripts that are agreed to send for review, they are sent out for peer review, usually two to three independent reviewers. Once the reviewers report is received to editor, the final decision will be taken by the editor based on the feedback or review report received from reviewers. The decision of the editor about acceptance or rejection of the manuscript will be considered final.
Tentative Editorial Evaluation Timeline (Tentative)

Otherwise it will return back to authors with reason to not accept for review process.

As most of the reviewers have less time due to their personal schedules and research works, they shall be given plenty of time of 2 to 3 weeks to review the manuscript and send back the report to editor.
