Since May 2023, AJEE has been cooperating with Scholastica for submission and peer review services. The peer review process is a core component of the publishing process, and the assigned editor is responsible for its oversight and management. When a review is submitted, the editorial team checks the review and its accompanying peer review status.




Before an article is published, the production team provides proofs and performs quality checks on citations, references, image resolutions, and ensures that persistent identifiers are correctly assigned and resolved.
