Peer Review Process

Submissions must be prepared according to the Author Guidelines. Manuscripts can be returned to the author without scientific assessment if the manuscript does not meet all the requirements submitted, the format is incorrect, publication malpractice requirements are found, or cannot be downloaded reliably.

Submissions must represent the original and independent work of the author. The Lead Editor assesses each new submission to determine whether it falls within the general remit of Transformatif (Islamic Studies). We will reject a manuscript without review if the content is inadequate; exceeds our word limit or is formatted incorrectly; the presentation is poor and unclear, or indicates plagiarism. The Lead Editor or Associate Editor will handle manuscripts that pass the initial assessment to oversee the review process for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation.

Once the manuscript passes the initial examination, it will be submitted to two independent experts for peer review. Double-blind review is implemented, where the author's identity is unknown to the reviewer (the editor will remove the author's name before sending it for assignment to reviewers). Peer-review comments are confidential and will only be disclosed with the express consent of the reviewer. All terms of the agreement are subject to peer review, and authors can expect a decision, or explanation for the delay, within two months of receipt. The corresponding author must submit a revised manuscript within two weeks if a revision is requested. The Lead Editor makes final decisions based on information obtained through a peer observation process.


As described in the publication ethics, we ensure that reviewed manuscripts are treated confidentially before publication.
