INSTRUCTIONS TO AUTHORS

PROCESS AFTER SUBMISSION OF ARTICLE?

All journals published by Inderscience place great emphasis on the quality of the articles they publish. Therefore, submitted articles are put through a full double-blind refereeing process in which:

  • Articles are sent to 2-3 experts for their peer review.
  • The reviewers' recommendations determine whether an article will be
  • accepted
  • accepted subject to minor changes
  • accepted subject to resubmission with significant changes
  • rejected.
  • For articles which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised article is acceptable.
