Dr. Linda Di Desidero, Associate Professor, Acting Director, Communication Studies & Professional Writing, University of Maryland Univ. College, LDidesidero@umuc.edu.--
"I wholeheartedly support the open-access peer-reviewed journals that SJI publishes. This is the wave of the future for scholarly publishing. The service that SJI provides is both valuable and visionary.  I enjoy serving on the editorial board of SJI and the opportunity to review some of the most recent work in my field."

 
Dr Jack Penm, Senior Fellow, School of Finance and Applied Statistics, The Australian National University, Australia, jack.penm@anu.edu.au. --"Scientific Journals International (SCI) is without question a pioneering open-access publisher. Many influential researchers have published high quality papers in various journals of SJI. I fully support SJI, and have no reservations whatsoever in recommending it to all authors."


Dr. Mark A. Duva, Assistant Professor of Psychology, Humanities and Social Sciences Division
Cerritos College, Norwalk, California, mduva@Cerritos.edu. -- "What SJI is doing is truly revolutionary.  Just read the information on the homepage of SJI to see how its innovative approaches benefit the authors and researchers around the world.  I have peer-reviewed about six articles for SJI some of which were excellent.  Some were horrible and I recommended rejection of them as they did not deserve publication.  I have gone back to check to see whether they were in fact published, and they were not.  This is an example of the integrity of SJI and their dedication to the comments of peer reviewers."


Dr. Mak Esposito, Director of the Master's Program in International Business, Grenoble Graduate School of Business, France,  mark.esposito@grenoble-em.com.  -- "I have been associated with Scientific Journal International for a bit more than a year and my experience has been of utmost high quality. The intellectual productions, the review processes, and the published works do not differ at all, from any other ranked academic journals. I have found that the parameters, the array of diversity, and the involvement of the authors is of enormously high standards. Scientific Journals International is a pioneer of open access publishing and it abides to the highest criteria of intellectual research, I have ever been exposed."


Dr. Clive Delmonte, Associate Lecturer, Open University, UK, clivedelmonte@yahoo.co.uk
"The traditional publishing process is systematically used by established scientists to frustrate and block significant innovations in science which challenge their professional position, and which might prejudice their access to research grants and further postgrad students. Only minor innovations in science are allowed into print or sometimes major ones which do not challenge the established order. I have published several papers on SJI and I find that the younger scientists and peer reviewers give much better balanced assessments and are much more flexible about the new ideas which they are willing to entertain. SJI fulfils a role which is desperately needed in science publishing, a breath of fresh air in a traditional scientific world where established scientists maintain a stranglehold on what new ideas can be circulated. We all need to get away from the truism that, in the past, "science progresses funeral by funeral."



Dr. Philip A. Ikomi, Research Scientist, College of Juvenile Justice and Psychology, Prairie View A & M University, Texas, paikomi@pvamu.edu. -- "SJI makes being published in a peer reviewed journal easier in the sense that they dwell on the important and substantial issues in a paper rather than ephemeral or non issues that make publishing drudgery for most scientists. That is what most of us like about SJI. I am very delighted to review papers for SJI as I have done for other important journals in my area of expertise."


Dr. Michael A. Persinger, Full Professor of Behavioural Neuroscience, Psychology and Biology, Laurentian University, Ontario, Canada, mpersinger@laurentian.ca. -- "Universal and free access to knowledge has been our only protection against the types of intellectual tyranny that are frequently presented as absolute authority and representation of consensus. Open access journals like SJI have the potential to assess a manuscript based upon its accuracy and potential rather than the prestige of the institution and the pen from which it originates. We are emerging into an international community and a global consciousness where versatility and multiple approaches to the dissemination of knowledge, traditional and novel, are essential. SJI and other open access journals are the expression of this evolution."


Dr. Lorraine Madway, Curator of Special Collections and University Archivist, Wichita State University Libraries, Kansas, lorraine.madway@wichita.edu. -- "SJI and other open access journals provide an important service to the global scholarly community.  They offer valuable opportunities for scholars to have their work published quickly without sacrificing quality in peer-reviewed journals.  Open access journals share an innovative vision that encourages the rapid exchange of ideas and information in a highly interconnected world.  Their transformation of scholarly publishing is not a development of the future but an essential element of the present—and the scholarly world is better for this change."


Dr. Antonio Gragera, 
Professor of Modern Languages, Texas State University, Texas, ag20@txstate.edu. -- "Open access online journals may hold the future of academic growth in their hands. Unfortunately, the pressures of academia have often translated in research that is no more than pouring old wine in new glasses, at least as far as humanities is concerned. Most journals have become the stronghold of dominant ideologies. Self preservation has made the permeability of new ideas and approaches almost null. Free open discussion has always been the best vehicle to raise awareness among the public. Open access journals like SJI may be the best vehicle against the petty tyranny of dogmatic knowledge."


Dr. Molly M. Lindner, Assistant Professor of Art, Kent State University--Stark campus, mlindner@kent.edu. --  "SJI is offering an important professional and peer-reviewed open-access publishing venue for scholars and researchers.  Many universities judge promotion and tenure of faculty on peer-reviewed publications, and SJI makes time to publication a matter of months rather than years.  The manuscripts in anthropology and sociology that I have reviewed for SJI have been of excellent quality.  My interpretation of scientific in the journal's title applies to the arts and humanities, as well as pedagogy in such disciplines.  I encourage art historians to submit their manuscripts that undertake investigations of art works' provenience, including attribution, identification of subject, location, original places of display of works of art for which the original documentation is lost or never existed.  These are scientific inquiries because they delve into material about which little is known or understood and require new methodologies and theoretical frameworks to present them.


Dr. David G. Yurth, Director of Science & Technology, The Nova Institute of Technology, Utah, davidyurth@novainstituteoftechnology.com. -- "Control of the means of publication and distribution has long remained the primary means by which scientific orthodoxy has been defended. By preventing the publication of innovative ideas, techniques, concepts and models science has arbitrarily stunted the evolution of our understanding about how the universe works and our place in it. The public agenda driving the proscription of publication of novel, sometimes heretical ideas, is that the maintenance of strict control over publication protects the community of scientists from the unwarranted circulation of inaccurate, incomplete or fundamentally flawed ideas. The hidden agenda serves another interest. By maintaining strict, parochial control of the means of publication, those who have achieved ascendancy in one branch of science or another are able to (a) protect their privileged access to research resources, (b) prevent incursions into their academic territory by potential competitors, (c) impose academic, scientific and personal biases on the literature, and (d) impede the rate of obsolescence of their own competence. The ability to innovate, articulate and engage in collegial discourse is the bedrock of Science itself. Instead of defending the status quo, Science is affirmatively obliged to facilitate, encourage, embrace and discuss promising avenues of investigation as they arise. The demonstrated predilection of conventional peer-reviewed journals to suppress the publication of non-conforming, controversial, and genuinely innovative ideas gives rise to the need for a viable alternative. Public source peer-reviewed journals provide an indispensable, relevant, equally valid alternative to the mainstream organs of science. Science as a pursuit cannot remain vibrant and relevant without them. I heartily support them and encourage others to use this means of publication to give others access to the insights that will lift science out of the dark ages."


Dr. Hugo Cota-Sanchez, Associate Professor and Herbarium Director, University of Saskatchewan, Canada, hugo.cota@usask.ca. --"I strongly support SJI because it provides an excellent opportunity for scholars and researchers to publish articles on a timely fashion and based on a rigorous peer-review process. Furthermore, as an open access journal, SJI makes available valuable scholarly information to the entire scientific community around the world. I believe that open access policies should be implemented by all journals."
 

Dr. Jay Martin Anderson, Professor of Computer Science, Franklin & Marshall College
Lancaster, Pennsylvania, jay.anderson@fandm.edu. -- "I have been an author (once only) and reviewer (numerous occasions) for SJI since its inception.  SJI provides a rapid publication pathway for scholars, yet with the same kind of careful editorial supervision and blind peer-review that one would expect from the finest academic print journals and professional societies.  There is no doubt in my mind that publication in SJI is given the same credence as publication in print journals when an author presents publications for consideration for tenure or promotion."
 

Dr. Jerold H. Theis, Professor, Medical Microbiology, School of Medicine, University of California, Davis, jhtheis@ucdavis.edu. -- "Online publication of well reviewed scientific studies is exactly what academic researchers need. Under the current system print journals are exacting exorbitant publication fees and editors of these journals are controlling more and more of what is seen by the scientific community through arbitrary decisions even before the articles are sent out to reviewers. The print journals' penchant for what they claim are superstars to be on their editorial boards further constrain the openness of scientific works by placing people with "territory" to protect in a spot where they can "manage" what appears in print. Nothing is more of an anthem to the concept of "Scientific Inquiry" than that type of behavior. The ability to recognize poor experimental design and execution is in the training we all receive as graduate students.  The claim, by the opponents of online publication journals, that such vehicles will result in erroneous information cluttering up the literature conveniently forget all the bogus studies that have been published by print journals following review by the "superstars" of their review boards. If Patriotism is the last refuge of Scoundrels, then self serving editors of print journals are the Judas of free exchange of thought and scientific inquiry. Online publications provide a much needed avenue to thwart censorship."  
 

Dr. James Ruby, Dept. of Human Services, Cal State University, Fullerton, California, drjamesruby@yahoo.com  -- "As one who has both submitted research and served as a reviewer, I find the SJI process to be one that is dedicated to high quality scrutiny of scholarship efforts.  The feedback that is offered to those who make submissions is detailed and seeks to raise the level of research excellence."
 

Dr. Pati Hendrickson, Associate Professor of Criminal Justice, Tarleton State University, Texas, hendrickson@tarleton.edu.-- "I have nothing but the best to say about SJI.  I have peer reviewed several works sent to me by SJI, and most have been above par.  I have been impressed with the quality of research submitted and have approved a variety of work for publication, albeit with minor revision in many cases.  I will gladly continue to be affiliated with SJI --thank you for the opportunity to review new and vibrant research within my field."


Dr. Doris M. Marino, Southern Connecticut State University, USA, marinod1@southernct.edu.
"As a peer reviewer for SJI, I have had the opportunity to read several very important research articles that would be leading material for professionals. The blind peer-review process is required of all articles before they are published. I have encouraged colleagues to submit their material to SJI because of the high quality peer-review process. The standards for publication are very high that most research professionals would appreciate."


Dr. Michael G. Lovorn, Assistant Professor, Department of Curriculum and Instruction, The University of Alabama, mlovorn@bamaed.ua.edu. -- "I have performed no less than six blind reviews for SJI (The Journal of Education and Human Development) in recent months, and have found their submission processes, review standards, and publication expectations to be as rigorous and demanding as any other with which I have been involved."


Dr. Atif Ali, Associate Professor of Pathology and Pediatrics, University of Missouri, Kansas City. Director of Immunohistochemistry, Department of Pathology and Laboratory Medicine,  Children's Mercy Hospitals and Clinics, aahmed@cmh.edu. -- "I strongly support the SJI and its mission.  Open access journals increase and inspire research interest world-wide. These open access journals including SJI are edited by scientists who value the integrity and ethics of medical research. The abundance of submitted manuscripts in excess of what can be published allows for rigorous review process by the editors. I have personally reviewed manuscripts for publications in SJI with the same process and scrutiny that I have reviewed manuscripts for other high impact journals and I would not change my publications criteria for SJI or other open access journals."


Gergana Apostolova, Lecturer of Philosophy, English and American Studies, South Western University, Bulgaria, apostolovag@yahoo.com. -- "I have been on SJI Editorial Review Board since its inception.  My record of reviews done for SJI includes 21 articles. I have enjoyed reading both the papers sent to me for reviewing and those published on the SJI journals. Anyone, who has visited the Web site of SJI would have been able to give evidence of the fast growing range of topics, journals and the number of volunteer reviewers. SJI is not the only Web journal, but it is fast growing and widely supported in being accessible to researchers from various fields of study. To my knowledge, SJI provides a vast forum for publishing and discussion and its very existence sets challenges for the study of the case of science on the Web."


Dr. L. Sreerama, Professor, Department of Chemistry, St Cloud State University, Minnesota, lsreerama@stcloudstate.edu. -- "I have been reviewing manuscripts for SJI in the area of chemistry and biochemistry for at least 2 years.  I always used the same standards of review that I use for other journals.  I am certain my colleagues that review for SJI do the same.  Accordingly, quality work is being published through open access SJI journals.  SJI provides an opportunity for researchers and educators to publish their work without prejudice and unnecessary drudgery.  SJI has been a source of literature for my own research and availability of information without the requirement of subscription and other conditions is a blessing."


Dr. Michael F. Shaughnessy, Eastern New Mexico University, New Mexico
Michael.Shaughnessy@enmu.edu
. -- "During the past few years, SJI has provided an outlet for researchers and scholars to share their scientific research. It is important to have a high quality outlet in which scholars of high academic standards and caliber review papers and provide constructive criticism. I have been fortunate enough to review a good many papers which have provided me with a great deal of insight, and perhaps more importantly to keep up with what is going on in the field, and to see the research designs (and yes, sometimes flaws) that other scholars use. Reading research is an important part of professional growth and development. I think Scientific Journals International goes a long way in terms of providing access to new developments and advances in the field. I look forward to reviewing papers and learning from my peers and other leaders in the field. I appreciate the work of Scientific Journals International."


Dr.Gonzalo Ferreira, Associate Professor, Ion Channels Laboratory, Department of Biophysics, School of Medicine, University of the Republic, Montevideo, Uruguay, ferreiragon@gmail.com. --"In a globalized world, open access to peer-reviewed papers in journals like SJI and others, will constitute an essential basis for developing a truly global consciousness. I have reviewed several papers for SJI in the same way I have done for other top journals. The submitted papers I have seen and reviewed for SJI, related to my discipline, is of high academic quality. I believe that our scientific community should promote and support this kind of initiative that makes scientific development more democratic, contributing to our exponentially increasing human knowledge in a free way that is not controlled by powerful academic and non-academic structures."

 
Dr. Donna Dea Holland, Department of Sociology, Indiana Purdue University, Indiana, hollandd@ipfw.edu. -- "I strongly support open access peer reviewed journals like SJI. Open access journals are leading the way to scholarly work being available to all people around the world. As a sociologist I favor open access journals over journals reserved for a select group of people."


Dr. Jianjun Sun, Research Fellow in the Department of Microbiology and  Molecular Genetics, Harvard Medical School, jianjun_sun@hms.harvard.edu. -- "I strongly support SJI. Open-access journals are becoming the wave of the future, and they are highly beneficial to scholars and researchers all around the world.  As an open-access journal, SJI sets very high standards for peer reviews and for publication."

 
Dr. Marion McClary, Associate Professor of Biological Sciences and Co-Director, School of Natural Sciences, Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey, mcclary@fdu.edu.
"SJI papers are peer-reviewed using a blind review process.  The science is judged on the science alone and not on the authors and the institutions.  I say this because I read an article in the Chronicle of Higher Education once that explained how a paper was rejected at first by a journal and then accepted after adding a well known scientist from a well known institution as a collaborator!  This kind of thing could never happen in SJI because the names of authors are unknown during the peer review process." 

 
Dr. Marion D. Schafer, Director Indiana Packaging R & D Center, Indiana State University, mschafer@isugw.indstate.edu. -- "I am proud to be among those chosen as a reviewer for SJI. My experience has been extremely positive and worthwhile. I believe this is a good outlet for publications without having to rely on paper and print."

 
Dr. Cinzia Balit-Moussalli, Associate Dean of Faculty for Curriculum Development, Professor of Finance and Economics, Huntingdon College, cinziam@huntingdon.edu. -- "As an author and reviewer,  I can attest that SJI conducts serious, constructive, and meticulous peer-reviews of manuscripts, as I just recently finished working on all the revisions needed for my second manuscript."
 

Dr. Rahul Singh, Head of International Programmes and Alliances, Birla Institute of Management Technology, Editor of Journal of Insurance and Risk Management, India, rahul.singh@bimtech.ac.in. -- "I have had the pleasure of being associated with SJI for long and have been involved as editor and reviewer of papers in the business areas. I have found that the papers submitted are of high quality and the blind review process provides highly useful feedback to the authors."


Dr. Majeed Abdurrahman, Associate Professor of Physics, Shippensburg University of Pennsylvania, AbAbdu@ship.edu. -- "I have been on the Editorial Board of SJI since its inception.  I have published papers in the Journals of Nuclear Physics B, Physics review D , Nuvo Ciment B, Physics Letters B,  Int. J. Mod. Phys. A and J. Phys A: Math. Gen.; and I have presented papers and talks in numerous conferences, and therefore able to judge the quality of papers that I am reviewing for SJI. The papers that SJI receives in general are not of any less qualities than the articles that other top traditional journals receive. Also, SJI services another purpose that other traditional Journals do not service which is the speedy publication of articles which makes them available to all scientists around the world. This is important for many scientists who work in countries which cannot afford the subscription fees of traditional journals."


Dr. Zaigham Mahmood, Senior Lecturer, School of Computing, University of Derby, UK, Z.Mahmood@Derby.ac.uk. -- "I have been associated with SJI for more than two years as a member of the Editorial Review Board. During this time, I have reviewed numerous papers and given my honest opinion about them. Whereas some papers were rejected outright, some others presented excellent original research which deserved publication. I am happy to be a part of SJI and will continue to do so."
 
 
Dr. José Ferreira Alves, Department of Psychology, University of Minho, Portugal, alves@iep.uminho.pt. -- “I am a Review Board Member of SJI. Since the very beginning I received numerous papers to review for the area of Psychology.  The great majority of papers are of high quality and importance. I do not know personally the colleagues that manage SJI but I know the papers that come to me and the revisions they have accepted from me. They are doing an outstanding job.”
 

Dr. Dayaratna-Banda, Senior Lecturer, Department of Economics and Statistics,
University of Peradeniya, Sri Lanka, dayab@pdn.ac.lk -- "SJI is providing an excellent service  to the scientific world through its open-access peer reviewed journals. SJI open access journals are invaluable sources of newly created knowledge. These types of services are extremely beneficial for the readers and researchers particularly in developing countries as most researchers cannot afford to subscribe to expensive traditional journals. The founders of SJI should be commended for the great services they are rendering."
 

Dr. Pietro Saitta, University of Messina, Italy, pisait@tim.it.-- "I sincerely express my support for SJI initiative.  These kinds of initiatives represent an important step toward the democratization of knowledge, one of the most important elements in a world threatened by depressing forms of obscurantism."
 

Dr. G. S. Rahi, Fayetteville State University, North Carolina, grahi@uncfsu.edu. -- "I have been associated with SJI Review Board for a couple of years. During this period I have done peer reviews for about five manuscripts. Based on their merit, less than half were sent with recommendation for publication and that too with quite a few critical comments and suggestions. This should speak for the high quality review process of SJI."
 

Dr. J. H. Khan, Professor and Head, Department of English, Sardar Patel University, India, javedspu@yahoo.co.in.  --  "I have been associated with SJI as a member of the Review Board for Language and Literature for the past one year or so. This association began and continues due to my deep appreciation of the mission of SJI and the objectives for which it was created. Open access journals are the need of the times, especially when there is a dearth of good journals in many regions of the world. Also, there is difficulty in accessing those that exist due to the prohibitive costs. The world has been witnessing an information explosion, and the knowledge so created requires such journals for the purpose of its dissemination."
 

Dr. Bashar Hikmet Malkawi, Assistant Professor of Law, Accounting and Commercial Law Program, Hashemite University, Jordan, bmalkawi@gmail.com. --  "I served as a reviewer for numerous manuscripts submitted for publication on SJI. The review process of SJI is as rigorous as any other top subscription journal. SJI has great potential for facilitating widespread distribution of scholarly literature and multiplying the ways in which students and professors can make educational use of this content. Enough of "paid access" ideology and it is time for universal availability of a comprehensive source of human knowledge."


Dr. Vincent K. Pollard, Asian Studies Program, University of Hawai'i at Manoa, pollard@hawaii.edu.  -- "I have participated in evaluating manuscripts for a variety of print and online journals since the 1990s. SJI journals are among these publications. The review process is rigorous, constructive and productive. Editors of the SJI journals are to be commended for their commitment to high standards and for their diligence." 

 
Dr. B.J.C. Perera, Lady Ridgeway Hospital for Children, Sri Lanka, paed@sltnet.lk. --
"I have been an external reviewer for SJI for a couple of years and have reviewed several  articles anonymously. I find their review process to be highly professional and I believe that their publication as an open access modality to be very useful to the scientific community."


Dr. Yali Zhao, Assistant Professor, Georgia State University, USA, yzhao@gsu.edu. -- "Open access journals, such as SJI, are extremely beneficial to international scholars who will not be able to access most of the journals published overseas but are eager to obtain knowledge and exchange ideas with scholars around the world."


Andrew J. Buck, Professor of Economics, Temple University, buck@temple.edu.-- "As an author, my experience with SJI and the open access concept has been very positive.  The identities of the referees were unknown to me.  Of the three referee reports, one was exceptionally good, far better than the referee reports I am accustomed to getting form traditional journals.  The other two referee reports were very good and required some effort on my part to respond.  Never did I regard acceptance of my paper to be pro forma."


Dr. Alfredo Reyes Salazar, Universidad Autónoma de Sinaloa, Mexico, reyes@uas.uasnet.mx. -- " I strongly believe that open access journals like SJI undoubtedly help students, professors and researchers around the world since they provide free access to peer-reviewed articles in all major disciplines. Moreover, the quality of the papers submitted is very high. I have submitted two papers for review and can testify that the review process is as rigorous as many top traditional journals."

 
Dr. Claudia Vanney, Professor of Physics, Universidad Austral, Argentina, cvanney@austral.edu.ar. -- "I have been a reviewer for several journals including SJI. The integrity and seriousness of SJI's peer review process is unquestionable. The manuscripts I have reviewed were conducted as blind peer reviews. I completed the review of the manuscripts in the same manner as I have for other major journals. I sincerely appreciate the scholarly services provided by SJI to the worldwide audience."


Dr. Neil Smart, Assistant Professor, Bond University, Australia, nsmart@bond.edu.au. -- “I have reviewed two articles for SJI and applied the same standards of scrutiny as I have for other top journals. I also published in the Journal of Medical and Biological Science of SJI in January 2008.”
 
 
Dr. Amalia N. Miliou, Assistant Professor, Department of Informatics, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece, amiliou@csd.auth.gr. --“I am a reviewer for SJI and I had the opportunity to review several papers.  I find that the review process of this journal is highly professional. I support the SJI efforts and I believe that open access peer reviewed journals like SJI are greatly appreciated by the scientific community all around the world.”


Dr. Sarbananda Sahoo, Assistant Professor, Asian School of Business Management,, ASBM Institute of BBA, India, sns_sahoo@yahoo.com. -- "I would like to express my solidarity with SJI. SJI is an excellent international journal and the blind peer review process adopted by SJI maintains very high standards. I strongly believe that SJI provides an important scientific and scholarly service to the global research community."

 
Dr. Abdelwaheb Cheikhrouhou, Head of Materials Physics Laboratory, Faculty of Sciences of Sfax, University of Sfax, Tunisia, abdcheikhrouhou@yahoo.fr. -- "I am a member of SJI Editorial Review Board. I sincerely express my support for SJI initiatives.

Dr S.J. Antony, Senior Lecturer, Institute of Particle Science and Engineering, Leader, Advanced Interdisciplinary Research (AIR) Laboratory, Equality and Diversity Officer at the Faculty of Engineering, U.K., S.J.Antony@leeds.ac.uk. -- "The peer review I had performed for SJI in the past is with the same vigor, intensity and fairness that I had done with other forefront journals in my filed."


Dr. Neala Ambrosi, Department of study in Italian language, University of Pula, Croatia, nambrosi@ffpu.hr. --
"I strongly support open access peer-reviewed journals such as SJI. I have been involved with SJI as a peer reviewer.  I have used the same high professional review standards for reviewing SJI manuscripts as I have for other journals."
 

Dr. Ahmed Hasson, Department of Agriculture & Food, Australia, ahasson@agric.wa.gov.au, "I am a research scientist. I have more than fifty original papers published in peer-reviewed journals all over the world. I have been associated with SJI as a reviewer. I have received numerous manuscripts from SJI as well as from other journals for peer review. I believe the papers that are published in SJI journals are the same quality as in other internationally recognized journals. I strongly support SJI journals."
 

 
Dr. Ketut Wikantika, Director of Center for Remote Sensing, Institute of Technology Bandung, Indonesia, ketut@gd.itb.ac.id. -- "I am proud to be among those chosen as  reviewers for SJI. SJI is one of the best alternative open-access publications which conducts serious, constructive, and rigorous peer-reviews of manuscripts. SJI is to be commended for its innovative approaches."

Dr. Kofi Poku Quan-Baffour, Senior Lecturer, ABET Institute, Pretoria, Quanbkp@unisa.ac.za. -- "SJI is a high quality journal that serves scholars and researches all over the world. It conducts very helpful peer reviews of manuscripts, and provides suggestions for improvement of papers before reconsideration for publication. My own paper went through the process and I am yet to effect the recommended changes before resubmitting it."
 

Dr. Errol Mathias, Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, California State University Los Angeles, California, emathia@exchange.calstatela.edu. -- "I strongly support SJI and other open access journals.  SJI is providing a great service to the scientific community. Please continue the good work."
 

"Dr. Ozlem Cankurtaran, Associate Professor of Chemistry, Yildiz Technical University, Turkey, kurtaran@yildiz.edu.tr. -- "I am a reviewer for Scientific Journals International. I have reviewed several manuscripts for SJI and I found that there was no quality difference between manuscripts submitted to SJI and other journals. I sincerely support SJI and other open access peer reviewed journals.   I am happy to be a member of SJI Review Board."


Dr. Manuel Alberto M. Ferreira, Full Professor, ISCTE, Portugal, manuel.ferreira@iscte.pt.
"I have reviewed about 20 papers for SJI, all of which are of high quality.  I can testify that the peer review and the editing process are technically sound, honest and impartial. The open access journals are the future of the scientific publishing world.  They allow a much quicker and accessible diffusion of scientific knowledge while maintaining a high quality of research. SJI is providing a wonderful scholarly service to the scientific community of the world."

Dr. Manuchehr Farajzadeh, Department of Remote Sensing & GIS, Tarbiat Modares University, Iran, farajzam@modares.ac.ir. --"SJI and other open access journals provide a crucial service to scholars and researchers around the world.  The peer-reviewed journals of SJI maintain very high standards while providing open access to scientific literature."

 

Dr. Raymond J. Ballard, Professor, Texas A&M University, Texas, Ray_Ballard@tamu-commerce.edu. -- "I have reviewed several papers submitted to Scientific Journals International. Of those papers apx. 30% were evaluated as acceptable in current form, 20% needed additional work and 50% were rejected.  There is a huge amount of money made by traditional print journals, so I am not surprised  that they are trying to discourage open access journals."


Dr. Dawnmarie DeFazio, Director, Clinical Research and Regulatory Affairs Allegheny General Hospital/Allegheny Singer Research Institute, Pennsylvania, ddefazio@wpahs.org. --"I strongly support SJI as an open-access journal. SJI sets very high standards for peer reviews and for publication. I have reviewed approximately four articles a month. Some require minor modifications, some major modifications and some need a lot more work to be published. The open-access journals like SJI are highly beneficial to scholars around the globe."

 
Dr Sarwoko Mangkoedihardjo, Professor, Department of Environmental Engineering, Sepuluh Nopember Institute of Technology (ITS), Indonesia, doktorsarwoko@gmail.com. --"I am a member of SJI Editorial Review Board. I have reviewed more than 10 papers anonymously.  The integrity and seriousness of the peer review process is unquestionable. I fully support SJI."


Dr. Arul Lawrence, Professor, Department of Computer Science & Engineering,
Royal College of Engineering & Tehnology, aarul72@hotmail.com -- SJI is offering an important professional and peer-reviewed open-access publishing venue for scholars and researchers. The service that SJI provides is both valuable and visionary. I enjoy serving on the editorial baord of SJI, and appreciate the opportunity to review some of the most recent work in my field. Many educational institutions judge promotion and tenure of faculty on peer-reviewed publications, and SJI makes time to publication a  matter of months rather than years. The manuscripts in Anthropology and Sociology that I have reviewed for SJI have been of excellent quality."
