Peer Review Process

The articles submitted are assessed initially by the Editor and a primary decision made regarding further processing.

Once such a decision is made, the article would be reviewed anonymously by two reviewers (double blind) from the Editorial Board.

When deemed necessary, the article would be sent to a separate Specialist Reviewer.

The reviewers' comments and recommendations are discussed at the monthly Editorial Board Meetings. The final decision regarding acceptance rests with the editorial board.

We aim to complete the peer review process and arrive at a publication decision within two months. However, this timeline depends on the exact date of the month in which the manuscript is submitted, the response of the peer reviewers, the promptness with which queries are addressed by the author/s and the necessity for revisions in the manuscript.

Revisions and re-submission following peer review
Following the peer review process, if any revisions are needed prior to acceptance for publication, the Editor would write to the author/s suggesting that the manuscript be appropriately amended and resubmitted directly to the Editor. The author/s would be given a period of a month (four weeks) to resubmit the revised article. If there is no response from the authors, a reminder will be sent giving the author another fortnight (two weeks) to submit the revised article. If there is no response by that deadline, the article will be rejected and archived.
