All the papers submitted will be subjected for a peer review process:Review process comprises two stages

Following are the steps involved in the peer review process:

  • 1.       Receipt of Manuscript
  • 2.       Assignment of reviewers for evaluation
  • 3.       Editorial Board’s recommendations
  • 4.       Decision making process -  Accepted / Partially accepted / Rejected / Accepted with some changes
  • 5.       In case of revisions / changes, author’s revision / rework process
  • 6.       Final decision making process - Accepted /  Rejected



Each manuscript will be primarily examined by the editor, and then forwarded to two reviewers for double blind review. The research paper shall be published subject to recommendation of reviewers. The review process may take up to five to six working days from the date of submission of paper. 


The review process is double-blinded; that is, the reviewer does not know who the manuscript author(s) is and the author(s) does not know who has reviewed the manuscript. If there is any correction in the manuscript, then IMPACT Journals' review members will correct the same with an approval from the board.  Edited manuscripts will not be disclosed to the Manuscript authors for want of time. That is, Galley Proofs will not be sent to the Communicating author. 


The author’s shall be informed about the selection/rejection of the article/paper by e-mail only. However, the journal shall publish the article/papers of the authors completing the formalities in due time mentioned in the selection letter. 


In case of acceptance of the article and completion of publication formalities by the author, journal reserves the right of making amendments in the final draft of the research paper to suit the journal’s requirement.


Review process comprises two stages. At the first level, articles will be reviewed for Tehnical acceptance . Once they are shortlisted, then provisional acceptance will be sent to the authors alongwith fee details. Once the fee and copyright form are received by the production team, then at the second level, process acceptance will be understaken. At this stage, plagiarism check will be stringently checked for.

 

Changes in the papers: No changes in paper will be accepted once the decision of acceptance is announced thru email to the communicating / corresponding author. So authors are requested to make all the corrections well prior to the decision of acceptance for paper publication announced to the authors / scholars.

 

Parallel Submission: Paper(s) once submitted to us should NOT be submitted in parallel to other companies to avoid confusion that would arise out of duplicate publication. If it is done, it will be at the risk of the authors who is submitting the manuscript and we as a publisher will not take any responsibility.

 

Plagiarism : We are calling for Original research papers ONLY for publication. We assume that there won't be any plagiarism related issues (having full trust on the authors) from the papers submitted by authors. This includes self plagiarism, the manuscript content should not be submitted/stored in any URL/Database/Website before submitting to us for publication.

 

If plagiarism is found during the course of publication process, the corresponding author will be notified along with plagiarism report. This plagiarism check / validation will be done for 2 times free of cost. Authors must use this opportunity to eradicate the plagiarism issues. From 3rd time onwards, it will be charged as ?500(For Indian authors) / $15 (for Foreign authors) per plagiarism check / validation. Once cleared, the article will be processed further.

 

Publication in 3rd party / collaborative journals : It is the responsibility of the authors of the manuscript who are submitting the paper, to validate and verify the authenticity and indexing of the 3rd party/collaborative journals before submission.

 

Note 1: As a publisher, we are responsible for the process of publication ONLY.

 

Note 2: Indexing totally depends on content, indexing partner guidelines and their indexing procedures. This is the reason sometimes indexing happens immediately and sometimes it takes time. The whole process for including any article (s) in the Scopus database is done by Scopus team only. Journal or Publication House doesn't have any involvement in the decision whether to accept or reject a paper for the Scopus database and cannot influence the processing time of paper. Post-publication and indexing process, if for any reasons or extraneous circumstances or due to any conflicts between journal publisher and indexing agency or due to any non-adherence of ethical standards, if the indexing is removed from the server by the indexing agent (Scopus, Thomson Reuters, etc., )
