Review Process

All articles/research work/write-ups received are duly acknowledged, will be reviewed for the possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to the, The Researchersí alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere.


The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the articles/research work/write-ups.


On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review.


The articles/research work/ write-ups that are found suitable for publication in The Researchersí are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each otherís identity.


It is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/rejection/amendments in articles/research work/write-ups) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewersí comments and submit a revised version of the articles/research work/write-ups. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the articles/research work/ write-ups.


The articles/research work/write-ups accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the articles/research work/ write-ups to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal publishes articles online as Print on acceptance.



Key Steps:

  • Author submits all required materials, including copyright form, and separate cover letter.

  • The submitted article is first checked by the editor(s) in terms of whether it is within the broad scope of the journal and has sufficient merit. Editor(s) also pay attention to the readability, grammar and usage before considering for formally initiating the review process. The author will be informed quickly if their paper is rejected at this stage. Also there will be technical rejection if authors give their names and affiliations in the main manuscript, the tables and figures as indicated in the text is missing or have not followed instructions to authors.

  • After initial approval by the editor, Completed submission is sent out to two or three reviewers.

  • Reviewers review the article and send it back to the editorial office for processing.

  • After initial review, Editor-in-Chief releases reviews to authors.

  • Authors are asked to respond to reviewers and make necessary corrections.

  • Article is sent out for re-review.

  • Editor-in-Chief may accept, reject, accept with minor alterations, or sent out for third review.

  • If accepted, author must submit final version. Version will be added to "in-press" queue with publisher.

  • Prior to publication, publisher will send galleys to authors. No edits may be made after galleys are approved.


What is Peer Review/Refereed/ Scholarly Journal

Peer review or refereed journal is an academic term for quality control. Each article published in a peer-reviewed journal was closely examined by a panel of reviewers who are experts on the article's topic. The reviewers look for proper use of research methods, significance of the paperís contribution to the existing literature, and integration of previous authorsí work on the topic in any discussion (including citations).


The Refereed journal has very specific guidelines for papers to be published and a rigorous peer-review process (each paper will list when it was submitted to the reviewers, and when it was accepted for publication.


Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an authorís scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal, conference proceedings or as a book.


The peer review helps the publisher (that is, the editor-in-chief, the editorial board or the program committee) decide whether the work should be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected.


Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably impartial review. Impartial review, especially of work in less narrowly defined or inter-disciplinary fields, may be difficult to accomplish, and the significance (good or bad) of an idea may never be widely appreciated among its contemporaries.


Peer review is generally considered necessary to academic quality and is used in most major scientific journals, but it does by no means prevent publication of invalid research.
