PEER REVIEW PROCESS AND GUIDELINES
All the journals in the Global Journal series publish only reviewed articles. The Review process starts with submission of articles preferably online by the author. The journal requests for an Assessment fee to ensure submission of quality articles and also to pay the Reviewers. The journal sends an article to at least two reviewers and after the review the article is sent to the author for corrections if recommended for major or minor revision. Rejected articles are withdrawn but the author is given an opportunity to resubmit with payment of another assessment fee. After the revision, the article is sent back to the reviewer to confirm that corrections have been effected and if done recommend acceptance. A notification is sent to the author if accepted. Notification contains instructions on payment of page-charges.
