Focus and Scope

The general theme of the journal refers to the political sciences of international relations.

The journal has an editorial board composed of prestigious personalities in the national and international field considering the standards of publishing scientific journals: the frequency, international editorial conventions (abstracts, bibliographic information, etc..) and keywords in English.

Based on a complex and modern approach, the journal can be found in field studies and articles on different lines of analysis noted: paradigms of international relations, European studies, interculturalism, migration, Diaspora and international relations, the internationalization of education, diplomacy, global issues of mankind.

Since its first issue, the journal intends to be a debating court for promoting the spread of ideas and for widening the scientific dialogue critically examining various aspects of international reality and meeting the need for collaborative research in international relations.

 

AUDRI is a blind peer review journal. All research articles in this journal undergo rigorous peer review, based on initial editor screening and anonymous refereeing by at least two anonymous referees.

The peer review process is essential in terms of quality as the articles that have undertaken the process are considered highly credible because they have undergone scrutiny by experts with particular knowledge in the topic. The primary aims of peer review are 2-fold: to decide whether or not an article should be published (based on quality and relevance to the journal), and to improve the article before publication.

Peer Review Process

Internal Peer Review Process

All submissions first go through an internal peer review process. Each submission is reviewed by the editor assigned by the editorial secretary who makes an initial decision to send the manuscript out for peer review or to reject without external review. Articles can be rejected at this stage for a variety of reasons such as similarity with a recently published article, the topic is outside of the scope of the Journal, little new information is provided, important flaws in the scientific validity, or an unprofessional presentation. This process normally takes a week. If the editor believes the article may be of interest to our readers, it is then sent out for external peer review.

External Blind Peer Review Process

The editors upon consulting the editorial board identify potential reviewers based on their expertise in the field, rigor and scientific methodology. Two reviewers are thus identified for each submitted manuscript. The reviewers are selected also by selecting from our database reviewers whose past contributions recommend them by their quality reviews and fit into the time frame.

Potential reviewers are contacted by the editorial secretary about their availability and interest in reviewing. Inquiries to reviewers are sent by e-mail, which include the manuscript abstract and the assignment deadline. When prospective reviewers agree to serve, they are permitted access to the manuscript and reviewing instructions, without however being permitted to know the author(s)' name. The reviewers’ names are also unknown to manuscript author(s). The time frame for making their decision is maximum three weeks. After the reviewing process, authors receive the decision from the editorial board as follows: accepted, accepted with slight changes, revise and resubmit, rejected.
