IJIMSR follows a strict peer review system ensures the quality of the manuscript. All submitted manuscripts undergo a peer review process before publication.
Double Blind Peer Review
IJIMSR employs a double-blind peer review process to limit the bias.
A double-blind peer review system is an anonymous review system whereby the identity of the author(s) of a manuscript is concealed from the selected reviewers. All details that may enable a reviewer to identify the author(s) of a manuscript are removed from the manuscript before the manuscript is sent to the reviewer. Similarly, the reviewers’ identities are also concealed from the author(s) when sending the reviewers’ comments to the author(s).
The Peer Review Process
IJIMSR employs a three-stage review process – editorial office, external review and editors’ decision.

Three external reviewers are selected from our database, editorial board of the journal having subject area expertise to review the manuscript. The reviewers are invited to review the manuscript by sending them the abstract of the manuscript within 48 Hrs.
