We are committed to prompt evaluation and publication of fully
accepted papers in all Mazedan journals. To maintain a
high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous
review process. Characteristics of the peer review process are
Simultaneous submissions of the
same manuscript to different journals will not be tolerated.
Manuscripts with contents outside
the scope will not be considered for review.
Depending on individual journal
policy, submissions usually will be refereed by 2 experts as
suggested by the editorial board.
In addition, Editors will have the
option of seeking additional reviews when needed. Authors will
be informed when Editors decide further review is required.
All publication decisions are made
by the journal's Editors-in-Chief on the basis of the referees'
reports. Authors of papers that are not accepted are notified
All submitted manuscripts are
treated as confidential documents. We expect our Board of
Reviewing Editors and reviewers to treat manuscripts as
confidential material as well.
Editors and reviewers involved in
the review process should disclose conflicts of interest
resulting from direct competitive, collaborative, or other
relationships with any of the authors, and remove oneself from
cases in which such conflicts preclude an objective evaluation.
Privileged information or ideas that are obtained through peer
review must not be used for competitive gain.
Our peer review process is
confidential and identities of reviewers cannot be revealed.
Different types of peer review
There are different forms of peer review used by journals,
although the basis is always the same, field experts providing
comments on a paper to help improve it. The most common types
Closed – where the reviewers are
aware of the authors’ identities but the authors do not know
who reviewed their manuscript.
Double blind – in this case
neither authors nor reviewers know each other’s identities.
Open – where there reviewers are
aware of the authors’ identity and the reviewers’ identity is
revealed to the authors. In some cases journals also publish
the reviewers’ reports alongside the final published
Mazedan Review Policy
Initial manuscript evaluation- The
Editor first evaluates all manuscripts. It is rare, but it is
possible for an exceptional manuscript to be accepted at this
stage. Manuscripts rejected at this stage are insufficiently
original, have serious scientific flaws, have poor grammar or
English language, or are outside the aims and scope of the
journal. Those that meet the minimum criteria are normally
passed on to at least 2 experts for review.
Type of Peer Review- Mazedan
journals follow the closed peer review process, where referee
remain anonymous throughout the process.
How the referee is selected-
Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according
to their expertise and our database is constantly being
Referee reports- Referees are
asked to evaluate whether the manuscript: - Is original - Is
methodologically sound - Follows appropriate ethical guidelines
- Has results which are clearly presented and support the
conclusions - Correctly references previous relevant work.
Language correction is not part of
the peer review process, but referees may, if so wish, suggest
corrections to the manuscript.
How long does the review process
take? The time required for the review process is dependent on
the response of the referees. Should the referee’s reports
contradict one another or a report is unnecessarily delayed, a
further expert opinion will be sought. In rare cases for which
it is extremely difficult to find a second referee to review
the manuscript, or when the one referee’s report has thoroughly
convinced the Editor, decisions at this stage to accept, reject
or ask the author for a revision are made on the basis of only
one referee’s report. The Editor’s decision will be sent to the
author with recommendations made by the referees, which usually
includes verbatim comments by the referees. Revised manuscripts
might be returned to the initial referees who may then request
another revision of a manuscript.
Final report- A final decision to
accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author
along with any recommendations made by the referees, and may
include verbatim comments by the referees.
Editor’s Decision is final Referees advise the editor, who is
responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the
article. The review process can be broadly summarized into the
steps shows in the flow chart given below-
Plagiarism is the unethical act of copying
someone else’s prior ideas, processes, results or words without
explicit acknowledgement of the original author and source.
Self-plagiarism occurs when an author utilizes large part of
his/her own previously published work without using appropriate
references. This can range from getting the same manuscript
published in multiple journals to modifying a previously
published manuscript with some new data.
Mazedan journals are strictly against any unethical act of
copying or plagiarism in any form. Plagiarism is said to have
occurred when large portions of a manuscript have been copied
from existing previously published resources. All manuscripts
submitted for publication to Mazedan are cross-checked for
plagiarism using Turnitin/iThenticate software. Manuscripts
found to be plagiarized during initial stages of review are
out-rightly rejected and not considered for publication in the
journal. In case a manuscript is found to be plagiarized after
publication, the Editor-in-Chief will conduct preliminary
investigation, may be with the help of a suitable committee
constituted for the purpose. If the manuscript is found to be
plagiarized beyond the acceptable limits, the journal will
contact the author’s Institute / College / University and
Funding Agency, if any. A determination of misconduct will lead
publisher to run a statement bidirectional linked online to and
from the original paper, to note the plagiarism and provide a
reference to the plagiarized material. The paper containing the
plagiarism will also be marked on each page of the PDF. Upon
determination of the extent of plagiarism, the paper may also be
Types of Plagiarism Full Plagiarism: Previously
published content without any changes to the text, idea and
grammar is considered as full plagiarism. It involves presenting
exact text from a source as one’s own.
Partial Plagiarism: If content is a mixture from multiple
different sources, where the author has extensively rephrased
text, then it is known as partial plagiarism.
Self-Plagiarism: When an author reuses complete or portions of
their pre-published research, then it is known as
self-plagiarism. Complete selfplagiarism is a case when an
author republishes their own previously published work in a new
Policy and Action for Plagiarism Mazedan respects
intellectual property and aims at protecting and promoting
original work of its authors. Manuscripts containing plagiarized
material are against the standards of quality, research and
innovation. Hence, all authors submitting articles to Mazedan
are expected to abide ethical standards and abstain from
plagiarism, in any form. In case, an author is found to be
suspected of plagiarism in a submitted or published manuscript
then, MIRA shall contact the author (s) to submit his / her
(their) explanation within two weeks, which may be forwarded to
the Fact Finding Committee (FFC) constituted for the purpose,
for further course of action. If MIRA does not receive any
response from the author within the stipulated time period, then
the Director / Dean / Head of the concerned College, Institution
or Organization or the Vice Chancellor of the University to
which the author is affiliated shall be contacted to take strict
action against the concerned author.
Mazedan shall take serious action
against published manuscripts found to contain plagiarism and
shall completely remove them from Mazedan digital Library and
other third party websites where the paper is listed and
indexed. The moment, any article published in Mazedan database is
reported to be plagiarized, MIRA will constitute a Fact Finding
Committee (FFC) to investigate the same. Upon having
established that the manuscript is plagiarized from some
previously published work, MIRA shall support the original
author and manuscript irrespective of the publisher and may
take any or all of the following immediate actions or follow
the additional course of actions as recommended by the
Journal editorial office shall
immediately contact the Director / Dean / Head of the concerned
College, Institution or Organization or the Vice Chancellor of
the University to which the author(s) is (are) affiliated to
take strict action against the concerned author.
MIRA shall remove the PDF copy of
the published manuscript from the website and disable all links
to full text article. The term Plagiarized Manuscript shall be
appended to the published manuscript title.
Mazedan shall disable the author
account with the journal and reject all future submissions from
the author for a period of 03 / 05 / 10 years or even ban the
authors permanently. MIRA may also display the list of such
authors along with their full contact details on the website.
Any other course of action, as recommended by the Committee or
as deemed fit for the instant case or as decided by the
Editorial Board, from time to time.
Article Processing Charge
Each open access journal associated to Mazedan International Research academy has no article processing charge. Publisher may ask the one time processing fee to the author(s).
Generally Mazedan publication takes 2-3 months to publish the
article, if authors want a fast track publication then they may request to the editor of the respective journal.
Before you begin
Before you accept or decline an invitation to review, consider
the following questions:
Does the article match your area
of expertise? Only accept if you feel you can provide a
Do you have a potential conflict
of interest? Disclose this to the editor when you respond.
Do you have time? Reviewing can be
a lot of work – before you commit, make sure you can meet the
Do you need to find out more about
reviewing and the peer review process? If so, check out the
free tutorials on the Elsevier Researcher
Academy, especially the Certified Peer Reviewer course.
Respond to the invitation as soon as you can (even if it is to
decline) – a delay in your decision slows down the review process
and means more waiting for the author. If you do decline the
invitation, it would be helpful if you could provide suggestions
for alternative reviewers.
Managing your review
If you accept, you must treat the
materials you receive as confidential documents. This means you
can’t share them with anyone without prior authorization from
the editor. Since peer review is confidential, you also must
not share information about the review with anyone without
permission from the editors and authors
Your review will be managed via an
Mazedan Journal Management System. All the Mazedan journals use
same submission system so there is one generic login link has
to be used.
To access the paper and deliver
your review, click JMS button given at the website or link send
in the invitation email you received which will bring you to
the submission/reviewing system.
First read the article. You might
consider spot checking major issues by choosing which section
to read first. Below we offer some tips about handling specific
parts of the paper.
Methodology- If the manuscript you are reviewing is reporting
an experiment, check the methods section first. The following
cases are considered major flaws and should be flagged:
Missing processes known to be
influential on the area of reported research
A conclusion drawn in
contradiction to the statistical or qualitative evidence
reported in the manuscript
For analytical papers examine the sampling report, which is
mandated in time-dependent studies. For qualitative research
make sure that a systematic data analysis is presented and
sufficient descriptive elements with relevant quotes from
interviews are listed in addition to the author’s narrative.
Research data and visualizations- Once you are satisfied that
the methodology is sufficiently robust, examine any data in the
form of figures, tables, or images. Authors may add research
data, including data visualizations, to their submission to
enable readers to interact and engage more closely with their
research after publication. Please be aware that links to data
might therefore be present in the submission files. These items
should also receive your attention during the peer review
process. Manuscripts may also contain database identifiers or
accession numbers (e.g. genes) in relation to our database
Critical issues in research data, which are considered to be
major flaws can be related to insufficient data points,
statistically non-significant variations and unclear data
Ethical considerations- Experiments including patient or
animal data should properly be documented. Most journals require
ethical approval by the author’s host organization.
Overview- If you don’t spot any major flaws, take a break from
the manuscript, giving you time to think. Consider the article
from your own perspective. When you sit down to write the
review, again make sure you familiarize yourself with any
journal-specific guidelines (these will be noted in the
journal’s guide for authors).
Structuring your review
Your review will help the editor decide whether or not to
publish the article. It will also aid the author and allow them
to improve their manuscript. Giving your overall opinion and
general observations of the article is essential. Your comments
should be courteous and constructive, and should not include any
ad hominem remarks or personal details including your name
(unless the journal you are invited to review for employs open
Providing insight into any deficiencies is important. You
should explain and support your judgment so that both editors
and authors are able to fully understand the reasoning behind
your comments. You should indicate whether your comments are
your own opinion or are reflected by the data and evidence.
Your recommendation- When you make a recommendation, it is
worth considering the categories the editor will likely use for
classifying the article:
Reject (explain your reasoning in
Accept without revision
Revise – either major or minor
(explain the revision that is required, and indicate to the
editor whether you would be happy to review the revised
article). If you are recommending a revision, you must furnish
the author with a clear, sound explanation of why this is
Bear in mind that there will be the opportunity to direct
separate comments to both the editor and author. Once you are
ready to submit your report, follow the instructions in the
email or visit our support center if you encounter any
The final decision- The editor ultimately decides whether to
accept or reject the article. Mazedan plays no part in this
decision. The editor will weigh all views and may call for
another opinion or ask the author for a revised paper before
making a decision. The submission system provides reviewers with
a notification of the final decision, if the journal has opted
in to this function.
After your review
Once you have delivered your review, you might want to make
use of Mazedan’s reviewer recognition platform to ensure that
you receive credit for your work. The platform provides a
private profile page, certificates, editor recognition as well
as discounts for Mazedan services.
Do not forget that, even after finalizing your review, you
must treat the article and any linked files or data as
confidential documents. This means you must not share them or
information about the review with anyone without prior
authorization from the editor.
