Peer Review Process

All submissions in PJHR undergo a rigorous review process to maintain a high-quality publication. All submitted manuscripts are treated as confidential documents and are reviewed by single blind peer review process which may take a maximum of 6-8 weeks from the date of submission. Submitted manuscripts are usually referred to 3-4 experts (reviewers). Cursorial reviews are not given weightage. Only critical reviews are considered for effective evaluation, if required. Manuscripts which are recommended for publication and that too from minimum of two peer reviewers are processed further. The rest are returned with relevant reports. All publication decisions are made by the journal’s Editor on the basis of the referees’/reviewers’ reports. In addition, Editor will have the option of seeking additional reviews when needed.
