The Editor-in-chief has full authority over the journal's editorial content and the timing of publication of that content with no interference from journal publishers.
Editors shall defend the confidentiality of authors and peer reviewers (names and reviewer comments) as per the International Committee of Medical Journal Editors (ICMJE) policy.
The author will receive prompt acknowledgement on submission of articles. If the acknowledgement is not received within two weeks of submission, please contact the Administrative Office, preferably by e-mail.
Peer Review Policy
Peer review is the critical assessment of manuscripts submitted to journals by experts who are usually not part of the editorial staff. The reviewer assesses the manuscript for quality, originality, validity, and appropriateness of methods in achieving the objectives.
We adhere to the Committee on Publication Ethics Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers policy and ICMJE recommendations for peer review.
Articles that meet minimal requirements are assigned to two or more reviewers. The peer-review process is double-blinded in that reviewers' and authors' identity is not revealed to one another. Reviewers are expected to provide their feedback on a manuscript within 15 days. The reviewed manuscript is sent to the authors for revision. The revised manuscript from the author is again forwarded to the reviewers.
Following the reviewers’ comments and recommendation, the final decision on the manuscript is taken by the editor. In situations where there are points of conflict, the editor-in-chief of the journal takes a final decision on the manuscript
