Peer Review Process

 

Our peer review process can be broadly summarized into SIX steps.

Step 1: Author(s) Submit(s) Manuscript (including all kinds of submissions)
Step 2: Manuscript Received.

  • A mail acknowledging the receipt of the manuscript to be sent to the Author.

  • The Manuscript is assigned a Manuscript Number and communicated to the Author. After the assignment of the Manuscript ID, the Author is not permitted to withdraw the same subject to the Withdrawal Policy. 

  • The Manuscript is sent to an Associate Editor for preliminary review.

Step 3: Manuscript Assessed by the Associate Editor
Step 4: Manuscript forwarded to the Editor in the concerned field of law/ Editor, Blog.
Step 5: Further Steps for Publication

  • Blog: To be published 

  • Other forms of manuscripts: To be referred to the Senior Editor cum Reviewer; If Reviewer Approves, Manuscript to Be Referred To The Editor In Chief For Final Decision

Step 6: The decision to be communicated to the Author

 

Withdrawal Policy

LexGaze is committed to maintaining the highest standards of publication ethics and simultaneously provide high-quality publications. It is expected that the Authors comply with best practices in publication ethics in the quality of their manuscripts.
At LexGaze, we also understand that manuscript withdrawal is a common procedure for a variety of reasons. While many of these reasons are genuine, we are also aware that authors, many a time, send unethical withdrawal requests, often even because their manuscript is accepted in another journal. We at LexGaze cannot promote such unethical behavior.
We have accordingly chalked out the following withdrawal policy for withdrawing one’s manuscript at any stage of publication but with or without penal consequences:

Withdrawal before acceptance of the manuscript
 

  1. An author may request withdrawal of her manuscript after submission (before acceptance), by providing a compelling reason. 

  2. Request received before the assignment of the Manuscript ID/ Blog ID will be considered immediately without asking any reason because that is the time it normally takes for the Peer Review to be initiated. 

  3. However, after the review process gets initiated, i.e, AFTER THE ASSIGNMENT OF MANUSCRIPT ID/BLOG ID, the author may seek a withdrawal by providing a compelling ethical reason. If any unethical reason for manuscript withdrawal gets detected, the corresponding action may be taken by the Editor-in-Chief. 

  4. The author should consider all ethical aspects before submission (such as co-author(s)’ approval, simultaneous submission, plagiarism, etc.). 


Withdrawal after acceptance of the manuscript
Withdrawal of the accepted manuscript is strictly not allowed (whether published or not). At LexGaze, authors are not allowed to withdraw the article after acceptance to submit in another journal and waste precious editorial and reviewer resources.

 

Copyright Policy

LexGaze shall retain the copyright of all published works in its entirety.
However, authors are allowed to share, post, and upload the published versions of their works on any platform they desire, provided that under no circumstances will the Authors be allowed to charge any amount of money from anyone for gaining access to the article.
In addition to the same, the Authors will be bound to publish a notice with the work stating that the copyright of the work rests with LexGaze in its entirety.
