General Guidelines

All of our peer-reviewed journals are bi-annual (fall and spring). There are no deadlines for submissions. We do not accept letters of inquiry, abstracts or topic proposals. Please submit your finished work for peer review. The length of a manuscript can be up to 3000 words approximately long including tables, graphs, diagrams, photographs, and equations. 

IJRS employs an innovative blind review system throughout the peer-review process. Each submission is reviewed by three to seven peer reviewers with final decisions reported to the author, usually within three months. This is possible because IJRS has a growing review board with more than 4,000 active reviewers. When the majority of reviewers recommend publication of a paper, and one reviewer recommends rejection, IJRS seeks additional reviewers' opinion to make the final decision. If your paper is accepted for publication, you will be asked to submit a License to Publish agreement along with a processing fee.

Your manuscript must be polished to high professional standards. Poor quality work with grammatical errors will not be sent out for peer reviews. It is a waste of our reviewers' time. We strongly recommend that you have your manuscript edited by an experienced editor before submission to IJRS.
