Peer Review Process

The journal adopts a double-blind review process closely monitored by the editors. Editors undertake an editorial review to assess the quality and type of submission before sending it to the review process. Manuscripts not meeting scientific standards will not be considered for the reviewing process. Authors are expected to pay attention to the Instructions for Authors and indicate the category in which they publish if it is not a research article. Editors will also check the readability and grammatical usage and may ask for resubmission if papers fare poorly in these parameters.

Editors request referees to advise on the scientific merit as well as the likely appeal the paper will have for a broad scientometric’s readership. Editors will be in contact with the referees once the paper is sent to them, with periodic reminders of their due dates. Once all the reviews are in-house, the editor handling the manuscript will likely decide within a day or two. The editor will then contact the corresponding author with the decision. Reviewers invest precious time in the belief that they are making significant contributions to the scientific process.

Authors can differ from the reviewer’s comments supported by a rational explanation, which will be examined by the editor and can be sent to the said referee again. However, offensive remarks on the reviewer’s comments will be subjected to the cancellation of publication.

Editorial assessment is also done after the referee process is completed before finally recommending the paper for the journal.

All efforts are made to complete the whole process within three to four months from submission, with the first decision, on average, done within 30 days to inform the article’s status.

The entire review process of the articles submitted to REiLA is done online and digitally. Authors must use the online submission system for submitting their manuscript. Only if they are unable to do so they should contact the editor through email.
