Peer Review Process

All articles submitted to Ancient Asia are initially assessed by an Editor, who decides whether or not the article is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for clarity, sound methodology/data analysis and validity of conclusions.

Ancient Asia operates a double-blind peer review process, meaning that authors and reviewers remain anonymous for the review process. The review period is expected to take around four weeks, although this may vary. Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports the editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editors, who are supported by an expert, international Editorial Board.

Authors are permitted to suggest up to three potential peer reviewers during the submission process. The journal does not guarantee to use these suggestions. All reviewers must be independent from the submission and will be asked to declare all competing interests.
