Peer Review Policy

All the manuscripts submitted to JIPBS will be subjected to single-blind peer review process, where authors remain anonymous throughout the review process.

When the journal receives a new submission, the editorial staff then performs an initial review of the manuscript to determine its topical relevance, adherence to the formatting guidelines, and absence of plagiarism in both textual and scientific content. If the manuscript passes this initial review, it is forwarded for peer review process to suitable expert in respective subject area.

The reports of the reviewer will be considered while deciding on acceptance/revision or rejection of a manuscript

Editor-In-Chief will make the final decision, based on reviewer’s comments

In case, authors challenge editor's negative decision with suitable arguments, the manuscript can be sent to one more reviewer and the final decision will be made based upon his recommendations.
