Start Submission Become a Reviewer

Editorial Policies

Peer Review Process

All unsolicited articles submitted to the journal undergo an initial process of assessment by the Joint Editors.  Once the contents are approved by the Joint Editors as being suitable for consideration by the journal, the articles are inserted into a Double-blind Peer Review Process where each article is reviewed by two General Reviewers. If the article is on a subject that is of a specialised nature, it is sent to a Specialist Reviewer as well, on a similar double-blind modality.

Editorials are written by the Joint Editors. Occasionally, the Joint Editors may invite a reputed authority on a given subject to write an Invited Editorial. 

The Joint Editors do invite acclaimed experts in the field of Endocrinology to contribute to the journal in the form of Leading, Review and Current Practice articles. All such solicited articles are assessed by both Joint Editors and appropriately revised, as and when necessary. They are not sent for peer-review.

Any articles written and submitted by the Joint Editors, Assistant Editor or a Member or Members of the Editorial Board will be reviewed independently without any participation of the author or authors concerned. In such circumstances, two or more independent external reviewers are recruited. The authors do not take part in any of the decision making processes and are always requested to leave the discussion site whenever such processes take place.

No fees are charged from the authors as submission fees, review process fees or publication fees. However, the author may be asked to bear the cost of printing of colour images and photographs. The charges will only be for the print version and will depend on the number of figures and the number of colours. The maximum charge will not exceed 50 US$.
