Peer Review Process
Manuscripts not submitted elsewhere for publication will be considered. Authors must
provide an email address as all communication will be by email. Two files must be furnished: the
covering letter and the manuscript in MS Word. The covering letter should be uploaded as a file
not for review. All articles submitted to the Journal must comply with these instructions. Failure
to do so will result in return of the manuscript and possible delay in publication.
Peer review process
All manuscripts if found suitable will be subjected to a double blinded peer review process
which may span for period of 6-8 weeks.
Submission of revised manuscripts
While submitting a revised manuscript, contributors are requested to include a point to point
response to reviewer's comments at the beginning of the revised manuscript text file itself. In
addition, if any changes are made to the manuscript, please mark the changes as underlined or
differently colored text in the article.
Page proofs of the manuscript, a form for marking corrections and instructions for filling the
form will be sent to the corresponding author by e-mail, before publication of the manuscript.
Authors should type the proof corrections in the form and send it to the Editorial Office.
While checking the proofs, take note that the text is complete and all figures and tables are
included in the proofs.
Respond to all queries from the Editorial Office; check the proofs for changes like spellings,
punctuation and setting of text, tables, figures and figure legends.
Corrected proofs must be returned to the Editorial office within 72 hrs (3 days) of receipt.
The page proofs can be sent to the Editorial Office by uploading through our website or as email
