Review Process

Throughout the entirety of the review process, the identities of both the reviewers and the authors are kept hidden from the reviewers of the article, and vice versa. This is because the LIJDLR adheres to the Double-blind Peer Review Process.

After an article has been sent in for consideration as a publication, the Editorial Team will check the Manuscript for Plagiarism using Software and then assign two reviewers to carry out a double-blind review of the paper. The reviews of both of the reviewers are taken into consideration when selecting papers for publishing. In the event that all reviewers recommend rejection, the Editor-in-Chief will make the final call on whether or not to publish the paper based on the reviewers’ feedback and, additionally, after considering the significance of the manuscript to researchers and readers and any applicable legal requirements like libel, copyright infringement, or plagiarism. There is no Publication Charge.

Authors are obligated to follow the journal’s peer-review guidelines. The Authors must respond to any questions or requests for additional information. In the event that revisions are requested, the Authors must promptly respond to each suggestion and submit a revised manuscript. No publication of the Manuscript will occur until all necessary revisions have been negotiated and implemented.
