After submitting the manuscript, the BEST editor will preview the manuscript. The editor will decide whether the manuscript is in accordance with the focus and scope and is appropriate to be submitted to the reviewer. The editor also checks the script whether plagiarism is high or not. Editors can fix the revision before sending the manuscript to the reviewer. This initial review usually takes one week.

Manuscripts that have passed the initial review will then be forwarded to the section editor and the section editor assigns one reviewer using the double-blind peer review method.

There are five possible editorial and reviewer decisions

Publication can be faster but does not exceed the publication deadline. For example: if the publication is January to June, it can be published in April according to the agreement with the editor or editorial board. but if anyone wants to submit or publish the article ... then it can be submitted before May (5) so that it can still be published in month 6 on the same volume and number.
