Peer Review Process

JISCT has introduced peer review processes for its all journals from its first edition onwards. The researchers submitting their manuscripts for review and subsequent publication should oblige by peer-reviewing at least one paper from their domain. Once the author submits any manuscript, an acknowledgment shall be sent to the author along with a technical paper for peer-review. The concerned manuscript shall be simultaneously reviewed by our extensive internal review/ referee network. The terms and conditions that behold any general reviewer/referee shall also hereby levied upon the peer-reviewers. Protection of Intellectual Property is one of the primary agendas of any reviewer/referee.

Peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an author's scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field. Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform impartial review. Impartial review, especially of work in less narrowly defined or inter-disciplinary fields, may be difficult to accomplish; and the significance (good or bad) of an idea may never be widely appreciated among its contemporaries. Pragmatically, peer review refers to the work done during the screening of submitted manuscripts and funding applications. This process encourages authors to meet the accepted standards of their discipline and prevents the dissemination of irrelevant findings, unwarranted claims, unacceptable interpretations, and personal views. Publications that have not undergone peer review are likely to be regarded with suspicion by scholars and professionals. Referees' evaluations usually include an explicit recommendation of what to do with the manuscript or proposal, often chosen from options provided by the journal. Most recommendations are along the lines of the following:

  1. to unconditionally accept the manuscript or proposal,
  2. to accept it in the event that its authors improve it in certain ways,
  3. to reject it, but encourage revision and invite resubmission,
  4. to reject it outright.

JISCT follows a strict blind peer-review program, wherein the reviewers are not aware of the identities of the authors of the papers which are being reviewed by them. This policy is a recent amendment to the existing set of guidelines so as to prevent any sort of favoritism. The JISCT reviewers are selected after thorough screening process. JISCT has a process of inviting applications from prospective reviewers. However, the publisher also individually contacts and invites competent individuals to join the esteemed board of JISCT reviewers.


Publication Frequency

Journal items can be published collectively, as part of an issue with its own Table of Contents. Alternatively, individual items can be published as soon as they are ready, by adding them to the "current" volume's Table of Contents. Provide readers, in About the Journal, with a statement about the system this journal will use and its expected frequency of publication.


Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

All articles published by Jisct are made freely and permanently accessible online immediately upon publication, without subscription charges or registration barriers. Further information about open access can be found†here.
