Maintaining standards for choosing and accepting papers submitted to a journal is the responsibility of the journal's editor. We think that most of the suggested guidelines have already been acknowledged and understood by experienced academics and researchers. But those who are just getting started with editor responsibilities can find them to be of great assistance.

Few important guidelines:

  • Please do not hesitate to give an impartial review. Number of revisions can be addressed until the desired quality is achieved.
  • Please reject the manuscripts which do not fall under the scope of the journal without a review.
  • If in case the paper is being rejected, please explain why in detail and guide them on your next steps, if any. (For instance, if the article contains wrong language and good subject and were the reason for the rejection, you could advise that language correction be done. Indicate if the issue is out of scope if it is the reason for the rejection. Etc..)
  • Adhere to the quality of language. It must be understandable by the readers all over the world.

Ethical Obligations:

  • An editor should give unbiased consideration to all manuscripts offered for publication, judging each on its merits without regard to race, religion, nationality, sex, seniority, or institutional affiliation of the author(s).

  • Manuscripts submitted for publication should be given editor's full attention and consideration as soon as possible. The editor is the only one who can decide whether to accept or reject a manuscript. If deemed inappropriate for the journal, manuscripts may be rejected without review.

  • The editorial team's editor and members should only discuss manuscripts they are considering with people they are seeking professional input from. Following a decision, the editor may reveal the titles of the manuscripts and the names of their authors.

  • An editor should respect the intellectual independence of authors.

  • Editorial responsibility and authority for any manuscript authored by an editor and submitted to the editor’s journal should be delegated to some other qualified person. Editorial consideration of the manuscript in any way or form by the author-editor would constitute a conflict of interest.

  • The author's consent must be obtained before using any unpublished data or interpretations given in a paper submission for an editor's own research.

  • When a manuscript is so closely related to the research of an editor as to create a conflict of interest, the editor should arrange for some other qualified person to take editorial responsibility for that manuscript.

  • If an editor is presented with convincing evidence that the main substance or conclusions of a report published in an editor’s journal are erroneous, the editor should facilitate publication of an appropriate report or note pointing out the error and, if possible, correcting it.

  • An author may request the editor not use certain reviewers in consideration of a manuscript.

  • An Editor should ideally send a PDF rather than Microsoft Word or other electronic file to reviewers and request that comments not be made to the electronic copy of the manuscript.

These are the general and ethical guidelines you need to adhere to achieve the quality output of a research paper.
