Peer Review Process

IJTIH is a double blind peer-reviewed Journal. To ensure the integrity of the double blind peer-review for submission to this journal, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and both the reviewers from being known to each other. This involves the authors, editors, and reviewers (who upload documents as part of their review). Correspondence and all forms of published correction may also be peer-reviewed at the discretion of the editors. Typically, after a paper is submitted to this journal, a journal editor screens the manuscript and decides whether or not to send it for full peer review. Only after clearing the initial screening is the manuscript sent to one or more peer reviewers. Finally, journal editors or the journal’s editorial board consider the peer reviewers’ reports and make the final decision to accept or reject the manuscript for publication. In general, to be acceptable, a paper should represent an advance in understanding likely to influence thinking in the field (see Focus and Scope).

Reviewer selection is critical to the publication process, and we base our choice on many factors, including expertise, reputation, specific recommendations and our own previous experience of a reviewer's characteristics. For instance, we avoid using people who are slow, careless, or do not provide reasoning for their views, whether harsh or lenient. We check with potential reviewers before sending them manuscripts to review. Reviewers reserves the right to reject the script if the script review didn't match to the fields/expertise. Reviewers should bear in mind that all correspondeces in this journal contain confidential information, which should be treated as such.

IJTIH are committed to rapid editorial decisions and publication, and we believe that an efficient editorial process is a valuable service both to our authors and to the scientific community as a whole. We therefore ask reviewers to respond promptly within the number of week agreed. If reviewers anticipate a longer delay than previously expected, we ask them to let us know so that we can keep the authors informed and, where necessary, find alternatives. In general, we need 1 (one) month to inform you about the results. Totally, review process for IJTIH estimated time consuming up to 2 (two) months. For any general questions and comments about the peer-review process, the journal or its editorial policies that are not addressed here, we encourage you to contact us.

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.

Status of Submission Manuscript

We are committed to prompt evaluation and publication of fully accepted papers in IJTIH. To maintain a high-quality publication, all submissions undergo a rigorous review process. Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal review, typically to two or three reviewers, but sometimes more if special advice is needed (for example on statistics or a particular technique).

The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' advice, from among several possibilities: (1) Accept, with or without editorial revisions; (2) Invite the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached; (3) Reject, but indicate to the authors that further work might justify a resubmission, and; (4) Reject outright, typically on grounds of specialist interest, lack of novelty, insufficient conceptual advance or major technical and/or interpretational problems.

Accepted Manuscripts

Authors will receive information for submitting a final copy of their manuscript upon acceptance from the Editor. Once the article has been finalized for print production, the corresponding author will receive an e-mail by Editor. Page proofs for review will be sent to the corresponding author via e-mail and/or Open Journal System (OJS).

Receipt of final PDF file upon publication

Upon publication of the journal, the corresponding author will be able to download a free PDF offprint of the article through the journal site. Information on the terms and conditions regarding the use of the final article PDF for the corresponding author and/or any co-authors is available on the site.

Corrections

In cases of serious errors that affect the article in a material way (but do not fully invalidate its results) or significantly impair the reader’s understanding or evaluation of the article IJTIH publishes a correction note that is linked to the published article. The published article will be left unchanged.

Retractions (expressions of concern)

If the Journal receives a complaint that any contribution to the Journal infringes copyright or other intellectual property rights or contains material inaccuracies, libelous materials or otherwise unlawful materials, the Journal will investigate the complaint. Investigation may include a request that the parties involved substantiate their claims.

In accordance with the "Retraction Guidelines" by the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), IJTIH will retract a published article if: (1) there is clear evidence that the findings are unreliable, either as a result of misconduct (e.g. data fabrication) or honest error (e.g. miscalculation); (2) the findings have previously been published elsewhere without proper cross-referencing, permission or justification (i.e. cases of redundant publication); (3) it constitutes plagiarism; (4) it reports unethical research, and; (5) An article is retracted by publishing a retraction notice that is linked to or replaces the retracted article. IJTIH will make any effort to clearly identify a retracted article as such. If an investigation is underway that might result in the retraction of an article IJTIH may choose to alert readers by publishing an expression of concern.

Copyright without restrictions

IJTIH allows the author(s) to hold the copyright without restrictions and will retain publishing rights without restrictions.

The submitted papers are assumed to contain no proprietary material unprotected by patent or patent application; responsibility for technical content and for protection of proprietary material rests solely with the author(s) and their organizations and is not the responsibility of IJTIH. The main (first/corresponding) author is responsible for ensuring that the article has been seen and approved by all the other authors. It is the responsibility of the author to obtain all necessary copyright release permissions for the use of any copyrighted materials in the manuscript prior to the submission.

Policy on conflicts of interest

IJTIH will only publish articles after the author(s) have confirmed that they have disclosed all potential conflicts of interest.

Article Posting

IJTIH routinely modify our policies based on the demand and to respond the needs of the scientific communities. They are mainly related with addition, deletion, rearrangement of author names in the authorship or uploading newer form of the article based on the editorial/reviewer’s comments. If there is any request to add, change, rearrange the name of the authors before publication of the article, it must be sent to the editor of the journal by corresponding author with reason behind such changes and a written confirmation of agreement from all other authors (hard copy or scanned image).
