Fairness & Review Process
All of the papers that are submitted to the Journal will be initially screened by our editorial team and further reviewed by our editorial board members without disclosing identity of authors. Completion of review process takes around 3-6 months time period. If a manuscript is unique, on occasion specific outside reviewers will be added to the Board for purposes of review. We are committed to developing a Journal which is responsive to the needs of the readership and to the discipline. This will make it easier to maintain a balanced and objective point of view in editorial content and provide content at a level which readers find informative and useful.Ethical Guidelines for Journal Publication
The publication of an article in a peer-reviewed journal is an essential building block in the development of a coherent and respected network of knowledge. It is a direct reflection of the quality of the work of the authors and the institutions that support them. Peer-reviewed articles support and embody the scientific method. It is therefore important to agree upon standards of expected ethical behaviour for all parties involved in the act of publishing: the author, the journal editor, the peer reviewer, the publisher and the society of society-owned or sponsored journals.
An important role of the publisher is to support the extensive efforts of journal editors, and the often unsung volunteer work undertaken by peer reviewers in maintaining the integrity of the scholarly record. It is a tribute to scholarly practice that the system works well and problems are comparatively rare. The publisher has a supporting, investing and nurturing role in the scholarly communication process and is also ultimately responsible for ensuring that best practices are followed.
We are committed to ensuring that advertising, reprint or other commercial revenue has no impact or influence on editorial decisions.
