Peer Review Policy

"Advances in Nonlinear Variational Inequalities" (ANVI) is committed to maintaining the highest standards of scholarly quality and integrity. Peer review is an essential component of our publication process, and we follow a rigorous and transparent peer review policy to ensure the validity and excellence of the articles we publish.

Peer Review Process

  1. Initial Assessment: Upon submission, each manuscript undergoes an initial assessment by the editorial team.

  4. Peer Review Evaluation: Reviewers assess the manuscript's quality, originality, significance, methodology, and presentation. They provide constructive feedback and recommend acceptance, revisions, or rejection.

  5. Author Response and Revisions: Authors receive the reviewers' comments and are given the opportunity to respond and make revisions as needed. Revised manuscripts may undergo further review.

  6. Editorial Decision: Based on the reviewers' feedback and the author's responses, the editor-in-chief and the editorial board make a publication decision, considering factors such as scientific merit and alignment with the journal's aims and scope.
