Journal of Governance and Regulation: New feedback from the reviewers

The editorial team of the Publishing House Virtus Interpress continues to implement its transparency policy in terms of communication with its stakeholders – authors and reviewers. This time, we are glad to present new feedback from the reviewers of the Journal of Governance and Regulation.

Prof. Andrea Sacco Ginevri, Full Professor of Economic Law at the International Telematic University “UNINETTUNO”, Rome, Italy: “I am very pleased to act as a Reviewer for the Journal of Governance and Regulation. In my opinion, the reviewing process is very efficient and well-organized thanks to the Editor’s great responsiveness and to the support offered by the entire editorial team. In addition, even if quite fast, the whole process is accurate and guarantees high-quality standards. In particular, the criteria and guidelines identified in the “Reviewer’s Report” are rigorous, concise and comprehensive and allow the Reviewer to evaluate in detail each paper. I really appreciate this experience and I wish to cooperate with the Journal also in the future".

Harit Satt, Assistant Professor of Finance and Accounting, School of Business Administration, Al Akhawayn University in Ifrane, Morocco: “It was my great pleasure working as a member of the editorial team for the journal of Governance and Regulation. All stakeholders are of a high level of integrity, professionalism and responsiveness. The review process goes smooth and clear, from receiving the initial manuscript, to the reviewed draft. Besides the journal of governance and regulations, I am working with Virtus Interpress on other outlets, it is always a real pleasure”.

Dr. Neale J Slack, Fiji National University, Fiji: “I was previously requested, and with pleasure accepted, to review one manuscript submitted to the Journal of Governance and Regulation. From the initial request to become a reviewer for Virtus Interpress, and throughout all stages of the review process, I have found the Senior Managing Editor to be polite, prompt, concise and informative in her communications. This has made the review process less complex for me as a reviewer. Additionally, the review process is simplified by a self-explanatory manuscript review template, that also allows for comprehensive feedback and suggestions by the reviewer to the author(s). The quick manuscript review turnaround time expected by the journal is important, as feedback and suggestions are promptly provided to the author(s). I also attest to the diligence and impartiality of reviewers in the review process. It is on this basis that I welcome the opportunity to review additional manuscripts submitted to this journal. I also highly recommend author(s) to submit their manuscripts in governance and regulation to this journal”.

Dr. Shab Hundal, Senior Lecturer, JAMK University of Applied Sciences, Finland: “It is my utmost pleasure to be affiliated with the Journal of Governance and Regulation as the external reviewer. I have no hesitation to say that the review process of the journal is not only transparent and streamlined but also maintaining the highest standards of professionalism. However, I must mention that the core emphasis of the journal is to publish high-quality research that is rigorous, relevant, and interesting. As a reviewer of the journal, I enjoy full autonomy. I receive immense cooperation from the managing editor and other support staff of the journal. The best part of the journal is the amount of ‘care’ that the journal provides to the authors. The journal leaves no stone unturned in increasing the readership of the research articles. I strongly recommend researchers, especially those at the early phase of their academic career, to consider the Journal of Governance and Regulation to publish their manuscripts”.

Prof. Tariq H. Ismail, Professor and Head of the Accounting Department, Faculty of Commerce, Cairo University, Egypt: “Virtus Interpress plays an important role in the publishing industry; it opens an avenue for researchers across the world to have their work published in esteems and ranked journals. As a reviewer for the Journal of Governance and Regulations, I encourage researchers to submit manuscripts for possible publications. Journals’ response time is reasonable as well as reviewers’ comments are constructive. The editorial team of the journal is supportive and manages the publication process in a very professional manner. Based on my long experience in the field of scientific publications as an author, reviewer, and editorial board member for a quite number of International top tier journals, I can say that Virtus Intrerpress should be referred to as an interdisciplinary global publishing house. It has succeeded in bringing scholars together from all around the globe to provide its combination of theory, as well as its empirical and comparative investigations. The Journal of Governance and Regulation supports young scholars of those in less advantaged academic settings while providing a unique opportunity for those who are seeking to make a small difference through their work and contribute to the research’ value creation”.
