- Accept, with or without editorial revisions
- Invite the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached
- Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work might justify a resubmission
- Reject outright, typically on grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems
Open access publishing model allows the wide range of readers to view, download, print and redistribute PDF version of any article without taking charges and provides worldwide and barrier-free access to the full text of all published articles. In an open access model, the publication cost of an article is paid by corresponding author, or by their supporting institution, in the form of "Article Processing Charges". Authors who publish in our open access journals retain the copyright of their work, which is released under a "Creative Commons Attribution License", enabling the unrestricted use, distribution, and reproduction of an article in any medium, provided that the original work is properly cited. The author need to pay the Article Processing fees only and after the article gets accepted for the publication, apart from the Article Processing Charges, there are no extra charges like submission charges, withdrawing charges, page charges or color charges.
The fees to be paid after the acceptance of an article are indicated in the table below:
|Manuscript Type||Article Processing Charges|
|Research Article, Review Article, Mini Review||$500|
|Case Reports, Short Commentaries, Letter to Editors, Book Reviews and other formats||$300|
Only published or accepted manuscripts should be included in the reference list. Meetings abstracts, conference talks, or papers that have been submitted but not yet accepted should not be cited. In the text, citations should be indicated by the reference number in brackets. Multiple citations within a single set of brackets should be separated by commas. When there are three or more sequential citations, they should be given as a range. Example: "... now enable biologists to simultaneously monitor the expression of thousands of genes in a single experiment [1,5-7,28]". Make sure the parts of the manuscript are in the correct order for the relevant journal before ordering the citations. Figure captions and tables should be at the end of the manuscript.
