Recently submitted manuscript primarily goes through plagiarism check. The next step is their screening by editors: the manuscript might get rejected if it is found to be of insufficient quality, outside focus and scope of the Journal, or if it is considered not original.
Editors-in-chief have full authority over the entire editorial content of the Journal and the timing of publication of that content with no interference from Journal owners.
Editors should protect the confidentiality of authors and peer reviewers (names and reviewer comments) in accordance with ICMJE policy.
Authors will receive prompt acknowledgement of submission of articles. If acknowledgement is not received within two weeks, please contact the Administrative Office, preferably by e-mail.
Peer Review Policy
Peer review is the critical assessment of manuscripts by experts who are usually not part of the editorial staff. The reviewer assesses the manuscript for quality, originality, validity, and whether appropriate research method has been followed.
We adhere to the Committee on Publication Ethics Ethical Guidelines for Peer Reviewers policy and ICJME recommendations for peer review.
Articles that meet minimal requirements are assigned to two or more reviewers. Peer review process is double blind: identity of reviewers and authors is not revealed to one another.
Newly submitted manuscript primarily goes through plagiarism check. Next step is their screening by the editors: the manuscript might get rejected if it is found to be of insufficient quality, outside focus and scope of the Journal or if it is considered not original.
A reviewer is requested to provide his feedback on a manuscript within 20 days. The reviewed manuscript is sent to the author for revision. The file corrected by the author is again sent to the same reviewer.
The final decision on the manuscript is taken by the editor. Only when there are any conflicts or issues, the Editor-in-Chief of the Journal is involved.
