The corresponding author will be informed about the reviewers’ comments and acceptance/rejection of manuscript. The contributors should clarify the comments and resubmit the revised manuscript to the editor in stipulated time. Articles accepted would be copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author, which has to be returned within one week. Failure to respond within stipulated time may delay the publication of the article or may even get rejected.
