Review Process Policy

All submitted manuscripts undergo a peer-review process. The articles will be reviewed for scope, originality, quality, relevance and impact of the article to Africa.

In addition to submitted manuscripts, the journal solicits the top peer-reviewed papers from the NACA annual conference to be published in the journal. The paper(s) selected undergo the same peer-review process before acceptance and publishing in the journal as all other submitted manuscripts.

Editors and reviewers should give unbiased consideration to all manuscripts that they agree to review. Editors will not participate in the review of manuscripts with which they may have a conflict of interest.

The roles of the reviewers are detailed in Clean Air Journal Publication Ethics and Malpractice Statement under the Duties, responsibilities and obligations of Reviewers.
