Peer Review Process

All papers submitted to AMS will be going through a blind peer-review process to maintain a good quality publication and to ensure that the reporting of research work is as truthful and accurate as possible. Acceptance is granted when reviewers’ recommendations are positive.

The review process steps are:

Initial review: The Editor evaluates each paper to determine that its topic and content is suitable for consideration by AMS. Papers that do not meet minimum criteria will not be accepted and will be returned to the authors.

Peer review: Papers that pass the initial review are assigned to an Associate Editor, who selects several reviewers based on their expertise in the particular field. Each paper is reviewed by at least two reviewers under a blind peer review process where the reviewers are kept anonymous. To facilitate a timely publication, reviewers will be asked to complete their reviews within 3 weeks. After collecting the reviewers’  reports, the Associate Editor makes a recommendation on the acceptability of the paper to the Editor.

Recommendation: Based on the reviewers’ comments and the Associate Editor's recommendation, the Editor makes a final decision on acceptability the paper, and will be communicated to the authors.

If required, authors will be asked to revise the paper and re-submit within a given period of time. It will usually be returned to the original reviewers for evaluation. The paper may need to undergo multiple cycles of review before acceptance.

Final Proof of the Paper: Upon acceptance, proof of the paper will be sent to the corresponding author for checking before publication.  The authors should provide their response within 7 days. Proofreading is solely authors’ responsibility, and AMS will proceed with the publication of paper, if no response is received within the period.
