PEER REVIEW PROCESS
Cyber Literature is a peer reviewed journal which follows a double blind peer review process minutely and honestly. After duly checking with duplication-checking software, the editor sends the manuscript to the reviewers who are not known to the author. Name of the author and other details which can reveal the author’s identity are deleted from the manuscript so that the reviewer may give his / her objective and impartial view. Hence, both the review and the author remain unknown to each other. The submission of the manuscript is not a guarantee for the publication. The manuscript is duly reviewed by the two reviewers and if it is found correct or publishable, the message is conveyed to the author. If it needs correction or modification, the same is conveyed. In case there is any difference of opinion in views of the two reviewers, the manuscript is also sent to the third reviewer for his / her opinion. To maintain the quality of the contents, no hurriedness or no hastiness is followed.
As a part of its policy for providing knowledge free of cost, it requires “NO FEE” either in the name of processing charge or publishing fee.
The Journal is uploaded on the official website in pdf and is free for all to read and even download.
Cyber Literature is committed to upholding the publication ethics as per the guidelines of COPE Committee on Publication Ethics. Authors are advised to browse the above link.
Authors are advised not to infringe the copy rights of other authors, make due acknowledgement and ensure that their papers are free from plagiarism. They are asked to submit an undertaking for the originality of the paper. Their papers are also subjected to duplication-checking software. If a formal complaint is lodged, it will be investigated and the author will be denied publication in the journal. His institution may also be reported of the matter.
