International Journal of Social Science, Management, and Economics Research reviewers play a crucial role in the scholarly publishing process. We employ a double-blind peer review process, ensuring that the identities of both the reviewer(s) and author(s) remain concealed from each other throughout the review process. This means that reviewers will not know the identity of the authors, and vice versa. Peer review is instrumental in validating research, establishing evaluation methods, and fostering networking opportunities within research communities. Despite its criticisms, peer review remains the widely accepted method for research validation.

All papers submitted to our journal undergo a rigorous double-blind peer review process, which typically takes a minimum of 1 to 3 weeks from the date of submission. We strongly advise authors not to submit the same paper to multiple journals and to patiently await the review status of their submission.

We are committed to ensuring prompt evaluation and publication of fully accepted papers while maintaining a high standard of quality. To achieve this, our peer review process adheres to the following characteristics:

  • Simultaneous submission of the same manuscript to different journals is strictly prohibited.
  • Manuscripts falling outside the scope of our journal will not be considered for review.
  • Each paper will be reviewed by at least 3 or 4 experts (reviewers) as recommended by the editorial board, including one reviewer from India and the remaining 2 or 3 from overseas.
  • Editors have the option to seek additional reviews when necessary.
  • Authors will be notified if further review is required, and all publication decisions are made by the journal’s Editors-in-Chief based on the reviewers’ reports.
  • Authors of papers that are not accepted will be promptly notified.
  • All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents and undergo a double-blind review process.
  • We employ plagiarism detection software to check all manuscripts for originality. If a manuscript is found to be plagiarized during the initial stages of review, it will be rejected outright and not considered for publication.
  • In the event of post-publication plagiarism (as per our plagiarism policy), the Editor-in-Chief will conduct a preliminary investigation, possibly with the assistance of a dedicated committee. If the manuscript is found to have exceeded acceptable plagiarism limits, the journal will notify the author’s Institute/College/University and any relevant funding agencies.

We appreciate the valuable contributions of our reviewers and authors in maintaining the integrity and quality of our journal. Together, we strive to advance scholarly research and foster a vibrant academic community.
