Peer Review Process

After the deadline of the call for papers, all the manuscripts submitted to the journal will be initially assessed by the editorial board. The papers selected for further consideration will then be checked for plagiarism using the software available in the campus. The selected manuscripts after plagiarism check will then follow double blind peer review process. The journal adopts a double-blind review procedure (neither the author nor the reviewer know each other). Generally, each manuscript is sent for peer review to two anonymous reviewers. Peer review process takes two to three weeks’ time depending on the nature of the manuscript and the time taken by the reviewers. However, depending on the availability of the experts, this approach may include one or two reviewers. All drafts, together with comments and suggestions from peer reviewers, will be returned to the authors for modification. The authors are asked to submit updated papers within a week of receiving feedback. The editorial board reserves the right to modify, accept or reject the article.


The journal was formerly known as the Demographic Forum for one issue published in 2013.
