Peer Review Process

The corresponding or submitting author submits the paper to the journal via online submission system or by email. First the submissions are desk reviewed by the Editor in Chief. If it is passed in the desk review stage it is sent to two reviewers for double blind review. The reviewer comments and the recommendations are sent to the corresponding author for revision. If the recommendations of two reviewers are contradictory, a third reviewer will be assigned. The revised submission is checked by the Editor in Chief or by the reviewers and if the revisions are acceptable, the paper is accepted for publication. 

The review process will take upto 1-2 months based on the reviewer’s response.
