The journal ISSN: 2583-7761 (Online) A-JMRHS follows double blind peer review policy for all articles. Once the article is received, it is forwarded to our two reviewers after removing names of authors and their affiliations. Authors are also not informed names of reviewers. Reviewers send their comments in due course of time and these comments/ queries are forwarded to authors to make corrections or offer explanations. Once the reviewers are satisfied with corrections in manuscripts or explanations given by authors, authors are conveyed the decision of acceptance of article. If author/s refuses to make corrections as suggested by reviewers, manuscript is rejected for publication.

Editorial & Peer Review Process


Time table

The Editorial board at A-JMRHS follows a time table which is based on it's current workload and as far as possible tries to adhere to it.

1Time from receiving manuscript to initial (provisional) approval/disapproval by editorial board14 days
2Time from approval to completion of peer review3-4 weeks
3Time for authors to send back the correction or explanations to comments by peer reviewers2 weeks
4Time for final acceptance by the editorial board based on peer review process3 weeks
5Time for authors to send in the final corrected draft2 weeks
6Time for A-JMRHS to set up the article in its format1 weeks
7Time for authors to do the final proof reading1 weeks
8Time for A-JMRHS to do the proof read changes1 weeks

The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication on the understanding that they are being submitted only to one journal at one time and have not been published, simultaneously submitted, or accepted for publication elsewhere.

The following is the editorial workflow that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the peer-review process.

The entire editorial workflow is performed using the online A-JMRHS Author log in Management System. Once a manuscript is submitted, the manuscript is assessed by a Screening Editor for originality of work, Serious scientific flaws and plagiarism.

Thereafter the article is handed over to the Editor based on the subject of the manuscript and the availability of the Editors. They then assess the article and inform the author if the article has been accepted for peer review or has been rejected. If rejected, the corresponding author will be informed via an email.

If the Editor determines that the submitted manuscript is of sufficient quality and falls within the scope of the journal, they assigns the manuscript to a minimum of 2 and a maximum of 5 external reviewers for peer-review. The reviewers submit their reports in the standard format ( provided to them by the A-JMRHS ) to the Editor and also grade the article.

  • Exceptional quality article
  • High quality article
  • Good quality article
  • Fair quality article
  • Unacceptable in present form
  • Unacceptable in any form

When all reviewers have submitted their reports, the Editor can makes one of the following editorial recommendations:

  • Publish Unaltered
  • Accept after Minor Changes
  • Consider after Major Changes
  • Reject

There after the authors are notified to prepare and submit a final copy of their manuscript with the required changes as suggested by the reviewers.

The Editor reviews the revised manuscript after the changes have been made by the authors. Once the Editor is satisfied with the final manuscript, the manuscript can be accepted.

The editorial workflow gives the Editors the authority in rejecting any manuscript because of inappropriateness of its subject, lack of quality, or incorrectness of its results. The Editor cannot assign himself/herself as an external reviewer of the manuscript. This is to ensure a high-quality, fair, and unbiased peer-review process of every manuscript submitted to the journal, since any manuscript must be recommended by one or more (usually two or more) external reviewers along with the Editor in charge of the manuscript in order for it to be accepted for publication in the journal.

The peer-review process is double blinded, i.e., the reviewers do not know who the authors of the manuscript are and the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer-reviewers are.

If the reviewer/editor feels that the language of the manuscript needs improvement, assistance from grammar and language correction software or an English academician is sought. However, all such changes are approved by the editor and author before final approval.

A due acknowledgment for the researchers who have performed the peer-review process for one or more of the manuscripts in the past is made on the journal website. Without the significant contributions made by these researchers, the publication of the journal would not be possible.


A Note on Withdrawal of Manuscripts


Some authors request withdrawal of manuscript after submission. If the withdrawal is done within the time span when the article is with Editor, and for a genuine reason like problems discovered in data etc , author is allowed the withdraw the manuscript without any penalty.

If the author withdraws manuscript any time after the manuscript has been sent to peer review till the final decision, then unless there are compelling reasons, the request is not entertained without an penalty. this penalty may be in form of payment to journal for its time and resources spent. 

A Note on Corrections: Post Publication of Manuscripts

After internal assessment and external peer review the articles are published. They then are open to post publication peer review. In the rare instance of a change required post publication then it is corrected in the online version and notified as last updated on. A separate DOI number is then given and a notice to this effect is also brought out in the next issue published.
