Peer Review Process
1. This journal uses double-blind review, which means that the identities of the reviewers and authors are kept secret from the reviewers and vice versa throughout the review process.
2. Manuscripts that do not meet the technical requirements will not be considered for review.
3. Authors are expected to follow the author instructions and guidelines, as well as indicate the category in which they are publishing if it is not a research article.
4. The review team will also evaluate the readability and grammatical usage of the article, and if it fails to meet these standards, they may request resubmission.
5. Following receipt of the papers, they will be distributed to subject experts based on the topic for which the author has submitted the article.
6. If the expert finds any errors or irrelevant information, he will make a decision within a day or two and notify the Editor-in-Chief. The decision will be communicated to the appropriate author.
7. Authors can express their dissatisfaction with editorial review comments if they provide a logical explanation that the Editor-in-Chief will consider.
8. Offensive remarks in the editor's comments, on the other hand, will result in the publication's cancellation. All efforts will be made to complete the entire process within three months of submission, with the first decision being made within 30 days on average to inform authors of the status of their article.
9. The entire peer review process for papers submitted to the Journal of Mobility Technology takes place online and in digital format.
10. Authors must use the online submission method to submit their manuscripts. If they are unable to contact the assistant editor, they should send an email instead.
11. The editorial board is in charge of confirming the reviewers' competence.
12. Contributors will typically receive notification of the acceptance of their manuscript for the reviewing process within two weeks, followed by the first response from the reviewers within another two weeks.
13. The editorial board is in charge of ensuring that responses are provided as soon as possible during the double-blind review process.
14. Personal criticism of the author should be avoided when conducting a review. The Referee's report should clearly contain arguments aimed at improving the manuscript's quality.

e) Editorial Reviewers evaluate the article and return it to the editorial office for processing.

g) Authors are expected to react to reviewers and make any required changes.
