Peer Review Process

Built-Environment Sri Lanka is a peer-reviewed research publication.

All articles submitted to Built-Environment Sri Lanka are initially assessed by an Editor, who decides whether or not the article falls within the scholarly focus of the journal and is suitable for peer review. If not accepted for peer-review, it will be notified. Those Submissions considered suitable for peer review are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for meaningfulness of argument, clarity, validity, sound methodology and their scholarly contributions.

Built-Environment Sri Lanka operates a double-blind peer review process, meaning that authors and reviewers remain anonymous for the review process and afterwards. The review period is expected to take around four weeks. 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 Editor-in-Chief, who is supported by an expert, international Editorial Board.
