Following is the editorial process that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the review.
If the Chief Editor determines that the submitted manuscript is of sufficient quality and falls within the scope of the journal, he sends the manuscript to one or more external reviewers for peer-review.
The Chief Editor of IASET has the authority and reserves the right to reject any manuscript submitted under any of the companyï¿½s journals listed in the website (www.iaset.us), because of inappropriateness of its subject content, lack of quality, incorrectness of its results & recommendations, inaccuracies in the experimentation etc., The final conclusion on publication is made by the Chief Editor upon recommendation of Editorial Board members. Nevertheless, Chief Editor's decision is final with respect to the acceptance or rejection of a manuscript for all the journal publications, assignment of paper to a journal, journal management w.r.t their categories, names, disciplines etc.,
If the manuscript is accepted for publication in our journals, it must not be published in any periodical(s) elsewhere without the permission of the editorial board. If the manuscript is accepted for publication in our journals, it will be communicated to the author(s) who submitted the same through e-mail or telephone. Author(s) is/are expected to send the copyright transfer agreement within 10 working days from the date of acceptance of paper. If there is an withdrawal, then it has to be explicitly made and should be within 10 working days from the date of acceptance of paper. If there is no communication (either positive or negative) from the concerned author(s), then it is up to the Editor to have a final verdict w.r.t the publication status. It may either be sent to the publication unit for publication or be rejected.
No changes in paper will be accepted once the decision of acceptance is announced thru email to the communicating / corresponding author. So authors are requested to make all the corrections well prior to the decision of acceptance for paper publication.
Also if there is any discrepancy in the paper published in our journal (Example, could be due to manual error), this should be reported to us within 7 working days of the receipt of the hard copy of our journal in which the concerned author's paper is published. If it is so, company will take remedial action for such deviations / gaps. Any complaints or issues received after 7 working days of the receipt of the hard copy of our journal will not be entertained for resolution.
Parallel Submission: Paper(s) once submitted to us should NOT be submitted in parallel to other companies to avoid confusion that would arise out of duplicate publication. If it is done, it will be at the risk of the authors who is submitting the manuscript and we as a publisher will not take any responsibility.
Plagiarism : We are calling for Original research papers ONLY for publication. We assume that there won't be any plagiarism related issues (having full trust on the authors) from the papers submitted by authors. This includes self plagiarism, the manuscript content should not be submitted/stored in any URL/Database/Website before submitting to us for publication.
If plagiarism is found during the course of publication process, the corresponding author will be notified along with plagiarism report. This plagiarism check / validation will be done for 2 times free of cost. Authors must use this opportunity to eradicate the plagiarism issues. From 3rd time onwards, it will be charged as ?500(For Indian authors) / $15 (for Foreign authors) per plagiarism check / validation. Once cleared, the article will be processed further.
Publication in 3rd party / collaborative journals : It is the responsibility of the authors of the manuscript who are submitting the paper, to validate and verify the authenticity and indexing of the 3rd party/collaborative journals before submission.
Note 1: As a publisher, we are responsible for the process of publication ONLY.
Note 2: Indexing totally depends on content, indexing partner guidelines and their indexing procedures. This is the reason sometimes indexing happens immediately and sometimes it takes time. The whole process for including any article (s) in the Scopus database is done by Scopus team only. Journal or Publication House doesn't have any involvement in the decision whether to accept or reject a paper for the Scopus database and cannot influence the processing time of paper. Post-publication and indexing process, if for any reasons or extraneous circumstances or due to any conflicts between journal publisher and indexing agency or due to any non-adherence of ethical standards, if the indexing is removed from the server by the indexing agent (Scopus, Thomson Reuters, etc., )
