Peer Review Process:

Scientific development requires the exchange and discussion of data and ideas. International Journal of Pharmacognosy (IJP)   is a unique publication dedicated to presenting the results of scientific and technical research from Science and Pharmacy discipline in an open-access background. The peer review of each article concentrates on objective and technical concerns to determine whether the research has been sufficiently well conceived, well executed, and well described to justify inclusion in the scientific evidence. Then, after publication, all papers are opened up for interactive discussions and evaluation in which the whole scientific and research community can be involved. Unlike many journals which attempt to use the peer review process to determine whether or not an article reaches the level of ‘importance’ required by a given journal, International Journal of Pharmacognosy (IJP)   uses peer review to determine whether a paper is technically sound and worthy of inclusion in the published scientific record. Once the work is published in IJP, the broader community is then able to discuss and estimate the significance of the articles.

IJP staff does not copy edit the text of accepted manuscripts; it is therefore important for the work, as presented, to be intelligible. Perfect, stylish English is not essential but the language must be clear and unambiguous. If the language of a paper is poor, IJP reviewer should recommend that authors seek independent editorial help before submission of a revision.  Poor presentation and language is a justifiable reason for rejection.

Please note the authors when submitting an article, all authors are asked to indicate that they have not submitted a related manuscript for publication elsewhere. If similar or related work has been submitted elsewhere, then a copy must be included with the article submitted. Reviewers will be asked to comment on the overlap between related submissions.

When you submit, you will be required to provide a statement in the online submission system or in manuscript text declaring the funding sources, and also stating the role of the study sponsor(s), if any, in study design; collection, analysis, and interpretation of data; writing of the paper; and decision to submit it for publication.
