Peer Review/ Publishing/ Plagiarism Policy

Peer Review and Publishing Policy

  • The magazine employs the double-blind peer review process, where both reviewers and authors remain anonymous throughout the review process.
  • Every proposal submitted for publication is read at least by an editor, for an initial review. If the paper agrees with editorial policies and with a minimum quality level, is sent to two reviewers. The reviewers won’t know the author’s identity, as any identifying information will be stripped from the document before review.
  • Reviewers’ comments to the editors are confidential and before passing on to the author will made anonymous. Based on the reviewers’ comments, the Editorial Board makes a final decision on the acceptability of the manuscript, and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees’ reports. Whether significant revisions are proposed, acceptance is dependent on whether the author can deal with those satisfactorily.

Policy on plagiarism/Disclaimer

The magazine just publishes these articles and brings them to you via internet. The authors/ writers of the articles will be completely responsible for any mistake in the article, rather than the magazine. If the plagiarized material/ content is found inside the articles, the authors will be responsible for that.
