Initial Evaluation of Manuscripts
The editor will first evaluate all submissions for a maximum of 3 weeks. Though rare, it is deserving of receiving an extraordinary script at this stage. Those who are rejected at this stage are not original enough, have serious scientific flaws, or fall outside the aims and scope of the Diversion Journal of Law. Those who meet the minimum criteria are referred to an expert reviewer for review. It usually takes up to 8 weeks.
The submitted manuscript will generally be reviewed by two to three experts who will be asked to evaluate whether the manuscript is scientific, whether it is a duplicate of a published work, and whether it is clear enough to be published.
The method used in the Diversion Journal of Law reviewer process uses Double-Blind Peer Review.

Original by stating clear objectives and legal issues
It is clear in terms of methodology
Follow appropriate ethical guidelines
Have results/findings that are clearly presented and support the conclusions
