Article Workflow

Peer Review Process

The corresponding or submitting author submits the paper to the journal, usually via an online system. The Editorial office checks the paper’s composition and arrangement against the journal’s Author Guidelines to make sure it includes the required sections and stylizations.  The manuscripts submitted for publication to IJERAT are Cross-checked for Similarity Index using iThenticate. Manuscripts found to be plagiarized during initial stages are out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the journal.

The submitted papers should be original, unpublished, and not in consideration for publication elsewhere at the time of submission to the IJERAT journal. All paper submissions will be refereed in a double-blind review process by at least two international reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area. Each paper is reviewed by the appropriate member of the Editorial Board. If it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to at least two independent referees for double-blind peer review. Based on reviewer's recommendation, as well as consultation between Editorial Board members the editor decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected. If the reviewer asks for a revision of the paper, then the author should make the revision and the paper will be published after the reviewers' acceptance. The review takes 8 to 10 days.
