Appealing Against a Rejection
Authors can appeal against a rejection from our journals but cannot submit an appeal whilst their article is under the peer review process and the same ethical standards apply. Please refer to our Publication Ethics further information.
Authors should contact the firstname.lastname@example.org for reconsideration of publishing their article. They should respond to the decision letter and should directly address the reason(s) mentioned in the reviewers’ report for the initial rejection. Appeals that do not address reviewers’ comments or contain offensive language will not be considered. If found convincing by the editorial board, the appeal will be taken forward and the article will be subjected to the peer review process. The author should not submit a revised version of the article until the appeal process is complete. In case of the appeal being rejected, the original rejection decision is upheld and no further consideration of that article is possible.
The author must appeal within four weeks of rejection of the article; otherwise, the appeal will not be considered.
IJARP Publications welcomes suggestions and complaints as they provide an opportunity for improvement. The suggestions and complaints may not only be from authors and readers, but from anyone who is interested in, benefitted by, and has contributed to the publication, and may be about plagiarism, duplicate publications, conflict of interest, reviewer bias, and violation of research standards, policies, and procedures. We will always try to put the suggestions in perspective.
If the journal receives any complaints about the violation of intellectual property rights, inaccuracies, or unlawful material, the journal will immediately investigate the various aspects of the complaint and take necessary action to resolve the complaints. The journal will document all the investigations and decisions. Our journal staff are constantly making their best efforts to improve the quality of the journal and minimize the mistakes.
How to make a complaint
The authors and readers should send their complaints with journal title, volume no., issue no., paper ID, paper title, and page no to the journal email ID email@example.com.
