Each paper is reviewed by the editors and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to at least three independent referees for double blind peer review. Based on their recommendation, as well as consultation between relevant Editorial Board members the editors then decide whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected.
The journal evaluates papers based on four main criteria as follows:
The subject matter must be of critical importance to the business/ technology communities; the research question/s must fall within the IJKIE’s scope and the research itself must be well designed and executed; and on the whole the paper must be well presented – well written and conforming to the IJKIE's style.
