Editorial Process

Following is the editorial process that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the review.

Once a manuscript is submitted, the Chief Editor of International Academy of Science , Engineering & Technology (IASET) inspects the submitted manuscript. If the Chief Editor determines that the manuscript is not of sufficient quality to go through the normal review work flow or if the subject of the manuscript is not appropriate to the journal's scope, then he rejects the manuscript without further processing.

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 company�s 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If the manuscript is accepted for publication in our journals, it must not be published in any periodical(s) elsewhere without the permission of the editorial board.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 is under the purview of the Indexing Database Organization / Agency (For example: Scopus or Thomson Reuter's WOS) and not influenced by the journal or publisher. Indexing takes place as per the guidelines and timeframe of the   Indexing Database Organization / Agency . If, after the completion of publication and indexing, the paper is removed by the   Indexing Database Organization / Agency   , the responsibility lies solely with the Indexing Organization. IASET journals does not have any liability due to lack of indexing.


Note 3: DOIs/certificates are publisher specific and all the publishers need not provide DOIs/certificates


Note 4 : Publication of papers/articles in journals are dependent on several external factors. Due to this the time taken for publication may be shortened or extended. IASET Journals cannot be held liable for change in duration due to external factors. If external factors result in the cancellation of publication, the APC will be refunded.


Note 5 : The final version of the paper is to be sent with or before the article processing charges are paid. Changes to the paper cannot be made after the paper is published. Requests to do so cannot be accommodated. The paper cannot be withdrawn from the respective journal, and refund of the APC is not possible under any circumstances after the paper is published.
