Peer Review Policy

The Peer-review process is an essential part of the publication process; it definitely improves the quality of the article to be published. Peer review ensures an independent assessment and accuracy of the results described. With the collaboration of editors and reviewers, Shanlax International Journals can ensure that the manuscripts we publish are among the most important in their respective disciplines. Shanlax Journals administer an effective review system. Our Peer review is designed to choose technically valid research of significant interest. Our Referees are expected to find the flaws and request to suggest advice to improve the quality of the article to be published. Our peer reviewer can only evaluate what the authors chose to include in the manuscript. By this publication approach, our peer review process will identify fraudulent data before publication. All contributions submitted to Shanlax journals that are selected for peer review are sent to at least one, but usually two independent reviewers, selected by the editors. The editor’s decision on the choice of referees is final. Editors, authors and reviewers are required to keep confidential all details of the editorial and peer review process on submitted manuscripts. The peer review process is confidential and conducted anonymously; identities of reviewers are not released. Reviewers must maintain confidentiality of manuscripts.

All submissions are double-blind peer-reviewed by the experts in the corresponding area. Manuscripts reviewing are entirely confidential. Reviewer’s decision and any information about the submitted article is not disclosed to anybody except the author.

After notifying the author about the manuscript is approved for publication, he/she is obliged to submit personally signed Copyright Agreement Submitted for publication manuscripts are processed according to the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives license (CC BY-NC-ND).

Submitted articles are sent to editorial review and peer review. Received manuscripts are validated immediately, and the decision will be taken according to the peer reviewers’ comments. The decision taken will be communicated to the author by journal’s Editor-in-Chief, via e-mail.

Submissions from the Editor-in-Chief will undergo independent peer-review and will be submitted to another Editor for his decision on acceptance.

Articles must be written in good English in a clear and correct style to maintain uniformity throughout the text. Articles submitted are copyedited before they are published.

Since our Shanlax take part in the Open Access Movement, all our published articles are made public and deposited in crossref with DOI.
