Peer Review Process

Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in JNOA 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 other’s identity. Every manuscript 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 manuscript) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point by point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript. Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author after final acceptance. 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.
