Peer Review

Peer-review process

All papers of the journal are peer reviewed by two independent reviewers. Acceptance is granted when both reviewers’ recommendations are positive. Journal issues will be made available online for download (Archives).

Initial review: The Editor-in-Chief evaluates each paper to determine if its topic and content is suitable for consideration by the IJCSE. Papers that do not meet minimum criteria are returned to the authors within one week of receipt. This is in the best interest of the authors who could then decide to either correct the problems or to submit the paper to a more appropriate venue, avoiding delays from a lengthy review process that would nonetheless lead to rejection.

What is Peer Review?

Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities. Despite criticisms, peer review is still the only widely accepted method for research validation.

The Peer review Process:

REVIEW

Recommendation: Based on the referees' comments and the Associate Editor's recommendation, the Editor-in-Chief makes a final decision on the acceptability of the paper and communicates to the authors the decision, along with referees' reports. The final decision can be "Accept Submission", "Revisions Required", "Resubmit for Review", "Resubmit Elsewhere", or "Decline Submission." A revised paper should be re-submitted within 5 days of the decision. It will usually be returned to the original referees for evaluation.

If recommended by the Board of Referees (BoR), the papers may undergo multiple cycles of review, before finally being accepted. The corresponding authors of qualifying submissions shall be intimated accordingly. Final acceptance of a paper is based on the review remarks by the referees and decision of the editorial board.

The ultimate decision as to its publication will lie with the Editor-in-Chief based on the recommendation made by review committee. The entire process of review will be completed within 4 to 5 Days from the date of submission of papers by authors. Intimation will be mailed to the authors as to the acceptance / rejection of their papers. The authors can, however, resubmit their papers duly revised and improved for subsequent publication in later issues.

Final Proof of the Paper: One set of page proofs (as PDF files) will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author or a link will be provided in the e-mail so that the authors can download the files themselves. These PDF proofs can be annotated; for this you need to download Adobe Reader version 7 (or higher) available free from Final Proof of the Paper: One set of page proofs (as PDF files) will be sent by e-mail to the corresponding author or a link will be provided in the e-mail so that the authors can download the files themselves. These PDF proofs can be annotated; for this you need to download Adobe Reader version 7 (or higher) . If authors do not wish to use the PDF annotations function, they may list the corrections and return them to IJCERT in an e-mail. Please list corrections quoting line number. If, for any reason, this is not possible, then mark the corrections and any other comments on a printout of the proof and then scan the pages having corrections and e-mail them back, within 05 days. Please use this proof only for checking the typesetting, editing, completeness and correctness of the text, tables and figures. Significant changes to the paper that has been accepted for publication will not be considered at this stage without prior permission. It is important to ensure that all corrections are sent back to us in one communication: please check carefully before replying, as inclusion of any subsequent corrections cannot be guaranteed. Proofreading is solely authors’ responsibility. Note that IJCERT will proceed with the publication of paper, if no response is received within 07 days.

The main functions of the peer review process are to help maintain standards and ensure that the reporting of research work is as truthful and accurate as possible.
