Peer Review Process
International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) adopts a double-blind review process conducted by the Reviewers / Editors. Reviewers / Editors undertake an editorial review to assess the quality and type of submission before approving it. Manuscripts not meeting the scientific standards will not be considered for publication. Authors are expected to pay attention to the instructions for authors and indicate the category they are publishing if it is not a research article. Reviewers / Editors will also check the readability, grammatical usage and may ask for resubmission if papers fare poorly in these parameters.
International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) will contact the Reviewers / Editors once a paper is sent to them, with periodic reminders of their due date. Once all the reviews are in-house, the International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) will most likely decide within a day or two. International Journal of Science and Research (IJSR) will then contact the corresponding author with the decision. Reviewers / Editors invest precious time believing that they are making important contributions to the scientific process.
All efforts are made to complete the whole process as soon as possible to inform the article's status.
