Editorial Policies

Peer Review Process

The journal adheres to a rigorous double-blind peer reviewing policy. A manuscript submitted to the journal will undergo initial reviewing by editor-in chief to ensure its scientific merit and its relevance to the scope of the journal. A minimum of two (02) reviewers are assigned by the editorial board for a selected manuscript considering their expertise and the subject area. The peer-review process will take four to six weeks. Upon receipt of the two reviewer reports, a decision will be made on the manuscript based on the following, and the corresponding author will be notified accordingly.

  • accepted as received
  • accepted after satisfactory completion of minor amendments
  • reconsider after major revision
  • rejected

The authors are requested to revise the manuscript if required, according to the comments made by the reviewers within a period of 3-4 weeks. The revised version of the manuscript will be sent to the reviewers for a second review when clarifications are needed and for further comments, in some cases. The manuscript will be revised by an editorial board member (co-editor) once again before a final decision is made by the editor-in chief on the acceptance. All decisions are communicated in writing to the corresponding author. Accepted manuscripts will undergo language editing before publishing.

Editors who submit manuscripts, either as corresponding author or contributing author will not take part in the peer-review process of their manuscript.
