REVIEW PROCESS

The Editor first evaluates all manuscripts. It is rare but entirely feasible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Those rejected at this stage are insufficiently original, have poor grammar or English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal. Should the Editor decide to not assign reviewers but instead reject the submission, he/she is required to provide comments to be returned to the author.

Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to preferable 5 but at least 3 experts for review. Suggestions for referees from the author are welcome, though these recommendations may or may not be used. Editors will solicit reviewers with the title and an abstract of the submission and, if accepted, send reviewers the submission via email. Editors should guide referees with Reviewer Guidelines. Referees directly return their reviews to the Editor through electronic review system. Unless the Editor makes specific arrangements with a reviewer.,

The deadline to complete the review process is 4 weeks. Upon acceptance of the paper, all authors are then notified about the Editor-in-Chief (EIC) final decision on their manuscripts along with the review comments.

Upon acceptance of each paper, authors are then requested to submit the camera-ready copy for final publication along with the scanned copy of the subscription/Maintenance or courier charges fee.
