Peer Review Process

A manuscript, after its submission, is given to the appropriate editor who chooses referee/referees for the paper.  However, if in the judgment of the editors a paper is unsuitable for the Journal, it will be rejected without external review (although, under such a scenario, authors have the right to appeal). The journal tries to follow a strict policy for peer review, appointing reviewers (excluding members form the Editorial and Advisory Boards of the journal) who are experts in their respective fields. Generally two reviewers are assigned for each manuscript. In case of any dispute the opinion of the third reviewer is sought.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.



The Journal publishes two issues in a year, one in the month of May/June and another in the month of November/December.
