Peer Review Process :
Scientific development requires the exchange and discussion of data and ideas. International Journal of Life Sciences Biotechnology and Pharma Research (IJLBPR) is a unique publication dedicated to presenting the results of scientific and technical research from Science and Pharmacy discipline in an open-access background. The peer review of each article concentrates on objective and technical concerns to determine whether the research has been sufficiently well conceived, well executed, and well described to justify inclusion in the scientific evidence.
IJLBPR aims to provide the best possible service to authors of original research articles, and the fairest system of peer review, with a dedicated in-house staff and the help of an Editorial Board of internationally renowned scientists. Key peer-review policies include the following:
• articles will not generally be rejected without the advice of a practicing scientist in the field
• There are 2 stages of review process. The first stage is internal review. In the first stage we will check the plagiarism and the suitability of the paper. If we find any plagiarism we shall return the paper to author asking him/her to modify it.
• The second stage of review is the external refereeing. Under this the paper will be sent to external referees for blind refereeing. The referee has three options; he can give the feedback as accepted/rejected/need to be revised. If the referee accepts the paper, it would be published automatically. If the referee suggests any modifications or revisions in the paper, the author has to revise the paper and resubmit to us. If the referee rejects the paper, we shall return to the author with comments.
Speed of publication :
IJLBPR offers a fast publication schedule whilst maintaining rigorous peer review; the use of recommended electronic formats for article delivery expedites the process. All submitted research articles are subjected to immediate rapid screening by the editors, in consultation with the Editorial Board or others working in the field as appropriate, to ensure they are likely to be of the level of interest and importance appropriate for the journal. The editors will provide an initial response to all submitted manuscripts within two working days and will make every effort to reach a decision following peer review within a week of an article's submission. A fully structured web version, and accompanying laid out PDF, will be published within four weeks of acceptance.
