A new manuscript submitted to journal is
addressed to Managing editor of the journal who forward it to
The Chief-executive-Editor makes the initial evaluation of the manuscript. If
the topic is important and relevant to the journal readership, he assigns the
manuscript to Managing editor, which oversees the review process in consultation
with an Associate editor. Manuscripts are reviewed by two independent experts in
the particular area.
The reviewers will make a scientific assessment and suggests improvements, and
recommends accepting or declining the paper. If the reviewers disagree, the
paper may be sent to a third reviewer at the discretion of the
Chief-executive-Editor. When the Chief-executive-Editor reach to a decision to
accept, accept with revision or reject a manuscript on the bases of reviewer’s
comments, he will consult to the Editor-in-chief for final decision and
approval. Authors are encouraged to suggest appropriate reviewers in their
field. Reviewers' comments are usually provided to authors.
A decision letter will be emailed to the corresponding author once the chief-
executive-editor and Editor-in-chief have made final decision.
If the manuscript is accepted without revision, the editorial office will
contact the corresponding author if additional files/documents are needed.
If the manuscript is accepted pending revisions, the manuscript along with the
reviewer’s comments is e-mailed to the corresponding author. The corresponding
author will have to send the revised manuscript (according to reviewers
suggestion) within 30 days after the decision letter is sent.
If the manuscript is declined, the resubmission must be submitted again and will
be handled like a new manuscript. A resubmission must be noted as such with its
previous tracking number.
A manuscript that is excellent but requires extensive revision will, as a matter
of policy, be declined.
Proofs: Proofs will be supplied once only in the form of page proofs.
Submitted manuscripts must be considered as final texts to which no changes
should be made at the proof stage apart from correction to printer's errors. The
managing editor will send the page proofs to the author by e-mail as PDF file.
Proofs must be returned to the publishers by e-mail within 48 hours of receipt.
If you return proofs even a few days after the date stipulated, it might be too
late to include your correction in the final version of the journal.
