ARPN Arcticle Review Format

Peer Review Process

All submitted full papers will be peer reviewed. The acceptance will be granted if the recommendations from the reviewers are positive. The criteria are based on the technical contents, clarity and format. Authors should make sure the submitted papers use the template for this conference. There are three review processes: Initial Review, Peer Review and Recommendation.

Initial Review

The track director evaluates each manuscript in the submission track to determine if its topic and content is suitable for consideration by Malaysian Technical Universities Conference on Engineering and Technology (MUCET 2015) before before being reviewed. Manuscripts that do not meet minimum criteria are returned to the authors. This is in the best interest of the authors who could then decide to either correct the problems or to submit the manuscript to a more appropriate venue, avoiding delays from a lengthy review process that would nonetheless lead to rejection.

Peer Review

Manuscripts that pass the initial review by the Track Directors, will be sent to several referees based on their expertise. Each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. The referees are asked to evaluate the manuscript based on its originality, soundness of methodology, impact to design research, and relevance to design practices. To facilitate timely publication, referees are asked to complete their reviews and provide individual critiques within two weeks. After collecting the referees' reports, the Track Director makes a recommendation on the acceptability of the manuscript.

Acceptance Decision

Based on the referees' comments, the Track Director makes a final decision on the acceptability of the manuscript and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees' reports. The status reports to reviewers should identify the reviewers of each paper, the final decision can be "Accept Submission", "Revisions Required", or "Decline Submission." The revised version should be submitted considering the review comments.


The authors should make sure that the manuscript pass a criterion of maximum 30 percents similarities to other publications.
