Manuscript Review Process

Submission-Initial process-Editor decision - Review-Accept/Reject - Revisions - Edits - proofs - Publication online/print


Submission

Authors are expected to consider carefully the author guidelines while submitting the manuscript to our journals.

Initial process

Once we receive the manuscript, the Assistant editor will check the submitted manuscript if suits the journal first. With the help of plagiarism checker tool, the content will be analysed for the similarities against the existing content. The manuscript will be formatted with the basic editorial tools.

Editor decision

The Editor will check the manuscript for scope, quality, originality, interest for the readership, etc. It will then be sent out for external peer review or rejected if it does not meet the criteria.

Review

When the required number of reviews have been received (two/three) the editor will consider the experts' opinions and make an initial decision to accept, reject, or request a revision.

Revisions

If the decision is for revision, the author will be given sufficient time to review comments and revise their manuscript.

When submitting the revision, the author must ensure their response (rebuttal) and revised manuscript correctly addresses each of the reviewers' and/or editors points.

Accept/Reject

The revised manuscript will be re-evaluated by the original handling editor, who will either make an immediate decision or send the manuscript for further peer review prior to making a decision.

Editors may request multiple manuscript revisions till the manuscript is upto the standard mark.

The decisions will be notified to author at each and every stage of the manuscript process.

Publication

The accepted papers will be moved to edit and proof team. The articles are copyedited, typeset and approved by the author before being published as both typeset PDFs and searchable full text.
