Peer-Review Process

All articles published in Wagadu are peer-reviewed. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for deciding which of the articles submitted to the journal should be published.

The Managing Editor ensures that the peer-review process is fair, unbiased, and timely. Research articles submitted are typically anonymously reviewed by at least two independent reviewers, and where necessary, the editor seeks additional opinions. Reviewers selected have expertise in the relevant field.

After the peer-review process, the editor may accept the article, request that the article be revised and be resubmitted, or the article rejected. Reviewers’ feedback is provided to the authors together with the editor’s decision. Revised and Resubmitted articles are returned to the original reviewers for new opinions.

Rejected articles can be submitted as new submissions if they undergo substantial revisions. These articles would follow the initial process of all new articles.
