All kinds of visual images should be treated as ‘Figures’, and if possible, authors are requested to present the figures in hyperlinked state.

Peer Review:

The Process:

We follow a strict double-blind reviewing of the submitted works. We promise to conceal always the identity of both the reviewers and the author from both parties. Primarily the submitted articles will be considered by the editors for the confirmation of the standard and the scope of the journal. If any submitted article fails to fulfill primary standard, the same will be rejected and the author will be communicated the decision promptly. If the editors are satisfied, they will select two or more reviewers for detailed consideration of the articles. Receipt of works is acknowledged as soon as possible (within 3 days). If you do not get any reply, resend the mail. The editors may advise the author to revise the article for publication.

Review Time: We do NOT have any system for fast or rapid review nor do we encourage it. Decision on a submitted article along with reviewers’ comments will be communicated to the author within 1 month. Authors should not send any query before the period is over. However, if no decision is taken after 1 month of submission, authors can naturally withdraw and submit elsewhere.

Plagiarism Policy and Article Removal Policy:

We hate plagiarism. In case any article is found to have been plagiarised before publication, we will blacklist the author. Even after publication if any article is found to have been plagiarised or reported by anybody to be plagiarised, we will REMOVE the article with a notice for the misdeed of the author.

PUBLICATION ETHICS AND MALPRACTICE STATEMENT

As a publisher Craft Revival Trust is committed to upholding scholarly publication ethics through every possible manner. We try to adhere to the norms and guidelines formulated by various scholarly societies to achieve international standards by maintaining quality in publication and by updating our publication system. We expect and encourage all the concerned parties associated with the journal to follow the norms as mentioned in our website.

Authorship

All published materials—articles, book reviews, poems or art pieces, must contain appropriate attribution of authorship. Since we follow the online medium, it is the sole responsibility of the corresponding author—who initiates the submission process online, to ensure integrity of publication ethics by complying with the following:

Appropriate attribution and acknowledgement

The corresponding author should ensure

  • That the submitted manuscript is genuine research work produced by the author/s,
  • That all the other authors are made aware of the submission,
  • That permission is taken from other authors for publication,
  • That the contribution of the authors is appropriately acknowledged,
  • That the contribution of other persons or parties, who/which add value to the work in any way is sufficiently acknowledged,

Changes in authorship

Authors can send request for changes to authorship to the editorial board at Mail@globalinch.org.  The Editorial Board of the journal reserves the right to take final decision on the request. Changes will be made only if there is valid reason and full agreement among the authors. Public notification may be made in the case of any post-publication change.

Ghost,’ ‘guest,’ or ‘gift’ authorship

We condemn the unethical practice of ‘Ghost,’ ‘guest,’ or ‘gift’ authorship (or anything that does not have any proper contribution to an article) and take appropriate steps against such practices.

Publication Process

Craft Revival Trust wants all concerned with publication of the journals and magazines—editors, reviewers and website managers, to strictly follow international norms. We are constantly trying to raise the standards of our publications. We expect the same kind of commitment from authors to conform to the ethical norms by following our guidelines.

Submission

While submitting with our journals and magazines authors should strictly follow our guidelines. We reserve the right to take action against any of the practices mentioned blow:

  • Plagiarism

Plagiarism is a curse upon the scholarly world. Authors submitting with us are expected to have proper understanding about the plagiarism issues. Nothing should be copied in any form without proper acknowledgement or legal permission in any way that may violate other’s rights. While they should include acknowledgement to other’s works, they should also take permission for using any material from the concerned parties themselves. The journal will not initiate any process nor will remain responsible for any kind of copyright violation.

  • Defamation or Promotion

We do not expect authors to include anything that may turn out to be defamatory or promotional.

  • Gender, Racial and Language Bias

Steps against Misconduct

We may take any one or all of the following steps against unethical practices:

  • The published content is retracted via notification.
  • A modified content is published with justification for modification.
  • The author is blacklisted and barred from future submission.
  • Notification along with evidences of misconduct is communicated to an author’s institution, superior, and/or any concerned authority.
  • Editors and reviewers

Editors and reviewers of our journals and magazines are encouraged to avoid any form of potential conflict of interest while performing their duties in concerned capacities in order to maintain integrity of our publication ethics and raise the standard of the journal. They are requested to follow the guidelines sent to them in the form of email communication. All forms of internal conflicts of interest are handled by the Chief Editor, who maintains privacy and takes appropriate measure.

The professional independence of the editorial board members is strictly maintained by the publisher. The board enjoys full autonomy in performing their scholarly duties. The publisher does not interfere with anything regarding this.

Peer Review System

We review the submitted works following Double Blind Peer Review. We conceal always the identity of both the reviewers and the author from both the parties. Primarily the submitted articles are considered by us for the confirmation of the standard and the scope of the magazine. If any submitted article fails to fulfill primary standard, the same is rejected and the decision is communicated to the author promptly. If the editors are satisfied, they will select two or more reviewers for detailed consideration of the piece. In case of disagreement between reviewers, the matter is resolved by the Chief Editor.
