The reviewing process

Each paper is reviewed by the editors and, if judged suitable for this publication, is then sent to two referees for double blind peer review. The editors then decide whether the paper should be accepted as it is, revised or rejected.  Indian Growth and Development Review is committed to an initial decision on a research article within four months from the date of assigning a referee to the paper.
