(a)  Review Policy

All received manuscripts are initially scrutinized for suitability within the journal. If found suitable, article will further be sent to a reviewer for blind review process. Identity of author/s is not disclosed to the reviewer. Based on their feedback, editor decides to accept, reject or revise the paper. Normally review process takes around 3 months to provide feedback to authors.

(b) Copyright Policy

Submitted manuscripts must be original work of the author that is not under submission at another journal or under consideration for publication in any other form. If author’s piece of work infringes any existing copyright, publisher will have to be indemnified for any such breach by author.

© Plagiarism Policy

Once a manuscript is submitted to UDAYAN, the editorial office conducts a preliminary check with respect to plagiarism. If plagiarized content is less than 15%, the author may be asked to revise the manuscript. If substantial plagiarism (>15%) is noticed in manuscript content or part thereof, the manuscript is straight away rejected. UDAYAN reviewers also conduct the plagiarism check in a similar manner and can make recommendations whether or not to consider the manuscript further. Even after acceptance of the manuscript or post-publication, if the plagiarism/duplication/re-publication of already published work in any language is observed, the case is referred to the UDAYAN executive board who conducts a full inquiry giving due opportunity to the concerned authors. In case of violation of provisions contained in author agreement or of grave and unethical misconduct as a researcher with respect to publishing the work, the published article may be retracted with no refund/adjustment of manuscript handling fee under intimation to authors’ institution/funding agency.
