‘Law Audience Journal’, follows a modern pattern of evaluating the submissions.
- The Journal follows a Double-Blind Peer-Review Policy (It means that personal identities or details of the contributors remain undisclosed).
- All the ‘Submissions’ received for publication in the Journal have to go through a process which is consisting of checking of plagiarism, grammatical mistakes, footnote errors and compliance with publication policy or submission guidelines. But, however, it is the duty of the author or authors as the case may be to ensure that they have followed the Bluebook 19th edition and their submissions are free from grammatical mistakes or free from other reasonable errors.
- If the submission passes the above-mentioned process, then the Journal forwards it to the concerned Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer.
- The concerned Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer examines the submission very carefully. Board Member or Peer-Reviewer reserved the right to reject the submission of the author or authors.
- If the Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer thinks that the submission needs to be modified, then the concerned Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer inserts his/her recommendations in the concerned submission in the form of comments.
- Then the Journal communicates the changes recommended by the Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer to the concerned contributor.
- The contributor has to incorporate the recommended changes within 2 or 4 days and has to re-submit it by emailing at firstname.lastname@example.org or through our official website.
- After receiving the modified submission the Publisher checks the submission. If the Publisher thinks that the contributor has inserted all the changes recommended by the Editorial Board Member or Peer-Reviewer, then the Publisher sends a mail to the contributor that your submission has been selected for publication. But, however, if the publisher thinks that the contributor has not incorporated all the recommended changes, then the publisher provides another opportunity to the contributor to incorporate the recommended changes within 2 days otherwise the submission will be rejected.
