Articles submitted to IJRSP are subjected to double blind peer review process. We encourage all our reviewers to use the online peer review system to conduct the review. You will have to register with the journal in order to do this.
Peer review is a critical factor in establishing high quality scientific research in the journal. The Editorial Board of The International Journal of Research and Science Publication (IJRSP) seeks relentless and unreserved support from the reviewers.
1. Following is the criteria for peer-reviewers to consider during their evaluation
2. Writing the Review
The purpose of peer review is to provide editors with an expert opinion regarding the quality of the manuscript under consideration. The review should also supply authors with explicit feedback on how to improve their papers so that they are acceptable for publication in the Indian Journal of Science and Technology.
a. As a reviewer, remember to do the following while writing your review:
b. Reviewer comments: The online peer review system has provision for reviewers to provide their comments to editor as well as blind comments to the author.
c. Word file attachments: Reviewers can also provide additional comments on a word or PDF file. Alternately, they can also provide their comments and suggestions on the manuscript file directly, although this is not advisable. Reviewers are suggested to provide their correction on the PDF file of the manuscript. For marking corrections on PDF, please download the Adobe Acrobat Reader, which is available for free download at http://get.adobe.com/uk/reader/
d. Important Note: Since we follow the double-blind system of peer reviewing, the following measures are to be taken by reviewers before submitting their attachments:
e. Confidentiality: The review process is strictly confidential and should be treated as such by reviewers. Reviewers must not take any confidential information they have gained in the review process and use it before the paper is published. Even after publication, unless they have the permission of the authors to use other information, reviewers may only use publicly published data and not information from any earlier drafts.
