Desk Screening

Each manuscript submitted to the conference will be first evaluated by the Editor/Editorial Board. The Editor/Editorial Board has the right to desk review and “desk rejects” the manuscript without sending it out for peer review.

Peer Review            

After an initial evaluation by the Editor/Editorial Board, the manuscript will be sent to two reviewers appointed by the Editor/ Editorial Board. The number of reviewers can be increased if necessary. IMM employs double-blind reviewing – both the reviewer(s) and the author(s) remain anonymous throughout the process. The reviewer(s) will evaluate the manuscript's originality, significance, research design, methodology, presentation of results, and appropriate referencing of relevant past studies. If the reviewer(s) recommend revision, the Editor/Editorial Board may invite the author(s) to revise and resubmit the manuscript based on the comments and suggestions from the reviewer(s). The author(s) need to re-submit the revised manuscript on or before the date announced by the Editor/Editorial Board. The Editor/Editorial Board will make the final decision on acceptance/rejection based on the final reviewer (s).  

Publication Opportunities 

Abstracts of the papers will be published in Conference Proceedings; Hard copy or E-copy, with ISSN. Selected full papers will be published in the Journal of New Frontiers in Economics and Business (JNFEB) or Journal of New Frontiers in Education and Social Sciences (JNFESS) with ISSN, within three months from the date of the conference.
