Peer Review Process

BRIGHT activates a peer review procedure and promotes blind reviewing. The acceptance or rejection of manuscripts will be decided by the editorial boards based on the review results completed by the reviewers. There are no communications between authors and editors concerning with the rejection decision. Before going to review procedure, all manuscripts will be checked that they are free from plagiarism practice using "Turnitin" software. If there is an indication of plagiarism, the manuscript will automatically be rejected. Authors whose papers are rejected will be sent an e-mail with the reasons of the rejection.
