Paper review process

Review Process
  1. We will follow blind referral process for reviewing the papers.
  2. Once a paper is received, the editorial committee decides the reviewer. Reviewers are selected on the basis of their knowledge and interest in the topic to be reviewed. The name of the author will not be disclosed to the reviewers.
  3. The paper is returned to the editors with reviewers' comments attached.
  4. Reviewers may recommend either major or minor changes before accepting the paper for publication/presentation. This may involve changing the length, clarifying expression, improving structure, changing some content or improving focus. A paper might be rejected outright or major revisions recommended i.e. a total rewrite.
  5. Reviewers follow guidelines set by the editorial committee.
  6. In case, the opinions of reviewers differ for a paper, a third opinion is sought and editorial committee decision is final.
  7. When a paper is returned after revision, it will be reviewed again.
  8. Once your paper is accepted for publication/presentation, it will be laid out, edited and proof read.
  9. Authors of accepted papers will receive one complimentary copy of conference souvenir.
