All submissions to the Dalat University Journal of Science are assessed by a Section Editor, who will decide whether they are suitable for peer review. Submissions felt to be suitable for consideration will be sent for peer review by at least one independent external expert in the field who is not part of the Dalat University Journal of Science’s Editorial Board. The Section Editor will make a decision based on the reviewers’ reports, which is subject to endorsement by the Editor-in-Chief. Authors should note that even in light of one positive report, concerns raised by another reviewer may fundamentally undermine the study and result in the manuscript being rejected.
