Background and Aim: This study attempts to show the cybernetics approach on peer reviewing articles to recommend an appropriate solution for increasing the qualitative level of published articles in scientific journals.
Method: Heuristic Cybernetics method is suggested, based on the scientific experiences of related researches and also the mathematical principles that is an appropriate formed solution. This field is modeled by simulating real space by use of the Fuzzy theory, based on AHP method and relying on expert's opinions.
Results: The effective factors of peer reviewing articles are divided into 5 categories: innovation novelty of subjects and its practicality in international domain order, logical solidarity and its reasonableness validity of used sources appropriateness for audiences and writing style. Then these factors have been prioritized, regarding the cybernetics nature of the case and by use of the AHP method. Also the available limitations in optimization problem have been studied. Meanwhile, fuzzy sets were appropriate tools for achieving the objective.
Conclusion: Using the suggested method for peer reviewing articles, fuzzy AHP method has acceptable results in this field and emphasizes the importance of peer reviewing articles as a systematic process.
