Peer Review Process

Certain publications have a required Technical Check process which all submissions to the Journal of Resource Recovery (JRR) must go through. This is usually done before a submission is sent out for peer review. If the submitted manuscript were sent back to you as it failed the JRR's Technical Check, the specific reasons for this decision would have been provided to you in the e-mail notification. The Response to a Technical Check should then be submitted. This is a separate file must be uploaded with the manuscript files when re-submitting the files.  When re-submitting your paper, also upload a Word (.doc or .docx) file detailing all the edits made or any comments or questions you have in relation to the Technical Check decision and recommendations.  This file needs to be uploaded along with your corrected manuscript.


The journal follows the single-blind peer review policy, which means reviewers are aware of the identity of the authors, however, authors are unaware of the identity of reviewers. There are at least three or more reviewers assigned to each submitted manuscript. Moreover, there are at least three or more reviewers for the total number of articles in each issue.
