Appeal Policy Against Editorial Decision

If the Editorial Board chooses to reject a paper after peer review, the author will be informed about the decision. However, if the author feels that the decision was unfair, he or she is free to appeal challenging the decision of the journal.

This appeal may be communicated to the journal office within 30 days of receiving notice of the rejection and must be made in writing to the Editor-in-Chief/Managing Editor, explicitly outlining the grounds for the appeal.

The Editor-in-Chief/Managing Editor may send the manuscript for a new review or permit the author to make changes to it if the appeal is legitimate.

In either scenario, the Editor-in-Chief/Managing Editor retains final authority over whether to accept the manuscript.

Kindly note that after the manuscript is rejected, you have 30 days to file an appeal.
