III. AUTHENTICITY OF THE PUBLISHED CONTENT


 

1. Authorization and Declaration: 

The authors must accept full responsibility for the content of their articles. The Members of the Editorial Board and the Publisher of the journal are not responsible for the statements and opinions expressed by the authors in their articles and write-ups published in the journal. While submitting the paper, the author(s) are required to provide a declaration about financial support, assure that there is no plagiarism, and that fraudulent data has not been used in the paper. If there is more than one author, they need to provide a statement stating that all authors have contributed to the research and that “the paper has not been published or sent for publication elsewhere”, the same research will not be published in more than one journal, and that the research is real, original and authentic work.

 

The authors are required to ensure that any study that involves human or animal subjects conforms to national, local and institutional laws and requirements, and they must confirm that approval has been sought and obtained where appropriate. The authors should obtain permission from human subjects and respect their privacy.

 

The authors must promptly notify the journal editor if a significant error is identified in their publication. The authors must also cooperate with the editor and publisher to publish an erratum, addendum or corrigendum notice where it is deemed necessary.

 

The author's should maintain an accurate record of data associated with their submitted manuscript and supply or provide access to this data when requested.

 

2. Paper Received and Screening of the Paper: 

Editors act in a responsible, objective, balanced and fair way while carrying out duties. They do so without discrimination on the grounds of gender, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, ethnic or geographical origin of the authors. They handle submissions for sponsored supplements or special issues in the same way as other submissions, such that articles are considered and accepted solely on their academic merit and without commercial influence. The editors adopt and follow reasonable procedures in the event of an ethical or conflicting nature to give authors a fair opportunity to respond to complaints. They ascertain that documentation associated with any complaints is retained.

 

Further, the editors strive to meet the needs of readers and authors, constantly improve the journal, ensure the quality of the material they publish, champion freedom of expression, maintain the integrity of the academic record, preclude business needs from compromising intellectual needs, and always are willing to publish corrections, clarifications, retractions and apologies where needed.

 

The editors’ decisions to accept or reject a paper for publication is based only on the paper’s importance, originality and clarity and the study’s relevance to the journal. A description of the peer review processes is published and the editors justify any important deviation from the described process. The editors publish guidance to authors on everything that is expected of them and are regularly updated.

 

Every paper, which is received for publication, is screened only (not reviewed) for its suitability for publication in a journal on the basis of,

 

◙ Topic of research

 Contents of the text

◙ Citation of recently published literature and presentation of paper as per format of the journal by the members of the respective editorial boards

 

3. Processing and Acceptance of a Paper: 

A paper is accepted and published only after the following formalities are completed (there is no time limit to publish a paper in a KRE Journal). However, minimum time for publication for most of the papers is about four to eight months.

 

 Comments from the Referees for the paper are received

 Revision of the Paper and Check for Language by the author completed

 Paper to the Editor for any further revision and approval

◙ Corrections of Galley Proofs by the Author received

◙ When the paper is accepted for publication, it is communicated to the author via e-mail

 

4. Format of the Paper and Language:

The contributor is asked to check in case the paper is not as per format of the journal, then correct it to avoid delay in the processing of the paper\ As most of the papers are received from the countries where English is a second language, to avoid delay in processing of the paper the contributors are advised to get the paper checked for language and italicize the local words.

 

5. Please Check Don’t Use:

 Political tone and comments on any region, race/ethnic group, religion, class, caste etc.

 Any copyright material (figure/tables etc.) in the paper. However, the author may write about that in the text.

 


 

IV. THE PEER-REVIEW PROCESS


 

1.  Referees for Review of Paper: 

The authors are required to participate in the peer review process of a paper. Editors must ensure that any material submitted to their journal remains confidential while undergoing review. The editors publish a guidance to referees on everything that is expected of them and this is regularly updated.

 

The referees’ judgments should be objective, that is, they should have no conflict of interest with respect to the authors (s), the research and/or the research funds. The referees should point out any relevant published work, which has not yet been cited, and reviewed articles should be treated confidentially.

 

This journal uses a double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer’s and author’s identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process.

 

The authors are also requested to provide the contact details of at least three potential peer reviewers or list of Referees for the paper, who may be asked to review the paper with the instructions that the Referees’ present status must be either Associate Professor/Reader or Professor (University/Institute) in the field of specialization as the subject of the paper demands to whom we may request for review of the paper and the Referees should be other than the Members of Editorial Board of the Journal, who are known to the authors and aware of the research activities of their Department/Institute, but are not from their Department/ Institute). They should be experts in the field of study, who will be able to provide an objective assessment of the manuscript's quality. The paper may also be sent to others for review in addition to the list of Referees provided by the corresponding author.

 

Authors are requested to provide the following information about the Referees:

Full Name:

Present Status:

Field of Specialization:

Name and Address of Institute/Department/University:

Postal Address:

Email (required):

 

2. Peer Reviewers:

The Paper is sent to the three Referees (who are specialized in the field of the topic of the Research Paper) with the Referees’ Report Form for providing his/her comments in that form (Blind Review). The Referees are requested to provide their comments within a six to eight week time period.

 

The List of Referees who have reviewed the Research papers of each journal is available on our website (www.krepublishers.com).

For each published paper we have followed this procedure. In case anyone wants to check, we can provide him/her the Paper with Referees and Editorial Comments and List of Referees who have reviewed that paper, Revised Version of that paper, further corrections if any in the paper, galley proofs of the paper with corrections if any, and final printed version of the paper.

 

The referees’ are responsible for contributing to the decision-making process and for assisting in improving the quality of the published paper. They do so by reviewing the manuscript objectively, in a timely manner. They must maintain the confidentiality of any information supplied by the editor or author, and not retain or copy the manuscript. They should be aware of any potential conflicts of interest that they might have with the paper (financial, institutional, collaborative or other relationships between the referee and author), and alert the editor about these, if necessary, and thereby withdraw their services for that manuscript.

 

3. Paper for Revision:

After receiving comments from the Referees, these are forwarded to one of the Editors to check the comments and prepare a report with the Editorial Comments, to send the paper to the corresponding author for revision. The revision of the paper falls under three categories (Minor Revision/Moderate Revision: No need to referee again, Acceptable after Substantial Revision: Needs to be re-referred). Each Revised Paper is checked by the copy editor for format of the paper as per journal style, language editor and one of the Editors. In case there is still any error, the author is asked to correct it before submitting it to the press for processing. Almost all the papers received and published so far have been revised by the corresponding authors.

 

4. Galley Proofs: 

The galley proofs of each paper are sent to the corresponding author to check and correct in case there are still some corrections. The corrected galley proofs of a paper is submitted to the proofreader and finally to the press. The paper is printed and final version of the printed paper is made available online.

 


 

V. LETTER TO THE EDITOR


 

 The Letters to the Editor may be considered as constructive criticisms and discussions of published papers and letters of relevance and interest to the readership and will be published at the discretion of the Managing Editor.

 

 Such Letters to the Editor should pertain only to the academic content of a paper, no personal comments about any one (Member of the Editorial Board, Author, Reviewer of a paper) will be entertained.

 

 The Administrative Editor follows all the terms and conditions listed under Instructions to Contributors strictly. Therefore, no comments are expected and/or entertained during the process of receiving, reviewing, acceptance or rejection of a research paper.
