Publication Ethics

Global Media Journal-Persian edition provides as approach to peer review and seeks to be inclusive, while it is based on the most rigorous and merit-based anonymous peer review processes. What makes Global Media Journal-Persian different is that those who write for Global Media Journal-Persian are also considered to serve as peer reviewers, creating a sustainable cycle of high-quality feedback. Reviewers are assigned on the basis of subject matter and disciplinary expertise. Ranking is based on clearly articulated and academic criteria. The result is a peer-review process that is scrupulously fair in its assessments and at the same time offers a carefully structured and constructive contribution to the shape of the published article.

 The journal also seeks to promote intellectual excellence. The result of our anonymous peer review is a publishing process which is without prejudice to institutional affiliation, stage in career, national origins or disciplinary perspective. If the paper meets excellency, and has been systematically and independently assessed as such, it will be published. This is the reason why Global Media Journal-Persian is filled with exciting new material in local and international subject. While many articles originate from well-known research institutions, a considerable amount of brilliantly insightful and innovative material is contributed by academics in in other less known academic institutes.  This includes emerging researchers, people working in hard-to-classify interdisciplinary spaces and researchers in liberal arts colleges and teaching universities.

 Global Media Journal-Persian Edition holds the belief that there are limitations both in high-cost commercial publishing and in open access publishing models without professional publishing support infrastructure.  Here in University of Tehran, we have been working to develop a low-cost commercial approach to academic. Our desire is to find a practical middle ground between the idealism of open access and the inefficiencies and high-cost of the big journal publishers. This is the basis of our initiative to be Open Access.  We also make all of our journals available in both print and electronic formats, and make new content available online as soon as it is ready for publication.
