About the Journal

FOCUS AND SCOPE

Berhan International Research Journal of Science and Humanities (BIRJSH) is a multidisciplinary open access and peer reviewed journal that is published annually in both online and print version by Debre Berhan University (DBU). BIRJSH accepts innovative research and original ideas on various fields of Science and Humanity, Management, Economics, Accounting and Finance, Education, Agriculture, Natural Science, Health, Medicine, and Engineering.

BIRJSH accepts research articles containing original research and has not been submitted/published earlier in any journal and is not being considered for publication elsewhere. Moreover, the research article written either in English or in Amharic will only be considered for publication in BIRJSH.

All content is free for everyone to access, and there are no submission or publication fees for authors. The BIRJSH welcomes timely original high-quality scholarly articles of appropriate length on the topic of Science and Humanity, broadly construed.

PEER REVIEW PROCESS

Some submissions will be immediately rejected by the editors. Submissions that are sent for review are subject to a rigorous blind review process. At least two experts will review the submission. Everyone involved in the review process will hold all information contained in the paper as confidential until publication. Peer reviewers are usually asked to submit their review within four weeks, read more on Peer-review and Editorial policies in the Author Guidelines.
