Editor Resources

An editor of a journal is responsible for maintaining rules for choosing and accepting papers submitted to that publication. We think that most of the guidelines provided are already known to and accepted by professional academics and researchers. Yet, editor's who are relatively new to editing responsibilities may find them to be of great use.

Few important guidelines:

  • Please do not hesitate to give an impartial review. Number of revisions can be addressed until the desired quality is achieved.
  • Please reject the manuscripts which do not fall under the scope of the journal without a review.
  • In case of rejection please state the reason clearly and guide them for further action if required. (Ex: if the rejection is due to the improper language and good subject you can suggest them for language editing. If the rejection is due to the subject which is out of scope state it. Etc..,)
  • Adhere to the quality of language. It must be understandable by the readers all over the world.

Ethical Obligations:

  • Every manuscript submitted for publication should be given fair treatment by the editor, who should evaluate each one on the basis of its own merits without taking the author's race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or affiliation with any particular institution into account (s).

  • Manuscripts submitted for publication should be reviewed by editors as soon as possible and with the utmost care. The editor alone is in charge of deciding whether to accept or reject a manuscript. If a manuscript is deemed improper for the journal, it may be rejected without review.

  • The editing team's editor and members should only discuss manuscripts they are considering with people they are seeking professional input from. Following a decision, the editor may reveal the article title and identities of the authors of works that have been approved for publication.

  • An editor should respect the intellectual independence of authors.

  • Editorial responsibility and authority for any manuscript authored by an editor and submitted to the editor’s journal should be delegated to some other qualified person. Editorial consideration of the manuscript in any way or form by the author-editor would constitute a conflict of interest.

  • Unpublished information, or interpretations disclosed in a submitted manuscript should not be used in an editor’s own research except with the consent of the author.

  • An editor should make arrangements for another qualified professional to take on editorial responsibilities for a manuscript when it is so closely related to their study as to present a conflict of interest.

  • If an editor is presented with convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of a report published in an editor’s journal are erroneous, the editor should facilitate publication of an appropriate report or note pointing out the error and, if possible, correcting it.

  • An author may request the editor not use certain reviewers in consideration of a manuscript.

  • An Editor should ideally send a PDF rather than Microsoft Word or other electronic file to reviewers and request that comments not be made to the electronic copy of the manuscript.

These are the general and ethical guidelines you need to adhere to achieve the quality output of a research paper.
