Peer Review Process

All original manuscripts submitted to the journal are subject to preliminary screening process based on author guidelines, appropriateness of the theme and quality of the content of the manuscript. The manuscripts that are cleared in initial screening undergo a double-blind peer review process. Manuscripts are assigned to two experts in the same or related field by the Editor-in-Chief in consultation with the editorial board to conduct anonymous review separately. The reviews are requested to review manuscripts in line with reviewer’s guidelines. Once the editorial committee received the review reports, they are passed onto the authors for necessary revisions. At the same time, the author is requested to provide his/her response for major comments and suggestions of reviewers with rationales for accepting or rejecting them. Then the revised manuscripts and author responses are provided to respective reviewers for their comments and acceptance or rejection. The author is again consulted with reviewer decision and ask to follow final guidelines of the reviewers. If the author does not adhere to the reviewers’ final comments, the manuscript will be rejected and otherwise it will be accepted to publish in the journal subjected to the language and other editing. Once the final version is ready to publish, the author will be given it to go through one more time to correct only typographical errors if any. After this process, the editorial committee will make arrangements to publish the article in following issue of the respective volume.
