The quality of a journal depends on the quality of articles published, which in turn depends upon the quality of refereeing process and reviewers. Not only the quality in terms of the content, but also the quality in terms of providing early and fast reply to authors and the period from the receipt of an article to its publication depends on the referees. To say in minimum words, referees are the backbone of any peer-reviewed journal. ‘World rely on journals and journals rely on referees’ – such is the importance of a referee.

We are fortunate to have the services of following experts for our review process.
