Ethics And Peer-Review Policy

Peer review helps to uphold the academic credibility of a journal. To ensure good quality publication in Arthavaan all submissions are reviewed as per the following peer-review policy:

  • All manuscripts submitted are reviewed by independent researchers for originality, validity and importance to help our editors determine if a manuscript is suitable for publication in the journal.
  • We utilise a double-blind peer-review system, in which reviewers are unaware of the names and affiliations of the authors.
  • Whenever possible, reviewers are matched to the paper according to their area of expertise.
  • A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the reviewers, and may include verbatim comments by the reviewers.
  • The editors will establish their decision based on Reviewers’ report which would be final.
  • We aim to provide authors with first decision (of accept, reject or revisions required whether minor or major) within 8 weeks.

We expect all prospective authors and reviewers to read and understand Ethics Policy before submitting/reviewing any manuscripts.

  • Fully correspond and comply with the editor and publisher in any requests for source data, proof of authorship or originality in a timely manner, providing reasonable explanation for discrepancies or failures to disclose vital information.
  • The submitted work has not been published before (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review or thesis) – or the work is not under consideration elsewhere - that copyright has not been breached in seeking its publication – i.e., the publication has been approved by all co-authors and responsible authorities at the institute or organization where the work has been carried out.

Self-plagiarism does not apply to publications based on the author's own previously copyrighted work (e.g., appearing in a conference proceedings) where an explicit reference is made to the prior publication.
