Selection Method

First the Editorial Board will run a plagiarism check. If the paper is found to be plagiarized or grammatically incorrect it would be desk rejected. Once it crosses the initial checking, each submission will be assigned a number and the papers will be sent for blind reviews.

Whether accepted or rejected the reviewers report will be communicated to the author as soon as we receive it. Based on the comments received from the reviewer the paper will be either accepted or accepted subject to changes or rejected. The author(s) of accepted papers will have to give an undertaking via signed declaration and fill up a copyright transfer form, provided on page 3 and 4 of the document.

Publication Fee

Then the author(s) will be required to pay 1500 Rs for their articles to be published.
