All articles/research work/write-ups received are duly acknowledged, will be reviewed for the possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to the, Asian Mirror alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere.
The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the articles/research work/write-ups.
On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review.
The articles/research work/ write-ups that are found suitable for publication in Asian Mirror are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each otherís identity.
It is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/rejection/amendments in articles/research work/write-ups) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewersí comments and submit a revised version of the articles/research work/write-ups. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the articles/research work/ write-ups.
The articles/research work/write-ups accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. The whole process of submission of the articles/research work/ write-ups to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal publishes articles online as Print on acceptance.
What is Peer Review/Refereed/ Scholarly Journal
Peer review or refereed journal is an academic term for quality control. Each article published in a peer-reviewed journal was closely examined by a panel of reviewers who are experts on the article's topic. The reviewers look for proper use of research methods, significance of the paperís contribution to the existing literature, and integration of previous authorsí work on the topic in any discussion (including citations).
The Refereed journal has very specific guidelines for papers to be published and a rigorous peer-review process (each paper will list when it was submitted to the reviewers, and when it was accepted for publication.
Scholarly peer review (also known as refereeing) is the process of subjecting an authorís scholarly work, research, or ideas to the scrutiny of others who are experts in the same field, before a paper describing this work is published in a journal, conference proceedings or as a book.
The peer review helps the publisher (that is, the editor-in-chief, the editorial board or the program committee) decide whether the work should be accepted, considered acceptable with revisions, or rejected.
Peer review requires a community of experts in a given (and often narrowly defined) field, who are qualified and able to perform reasonably 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.
Peer review is generally considered necessary to academic quality and is used in most major scientific journals, but it does by no means prevent publication of invalid research.
