Guidelines for Authors



With regard to Articles for publication, Dimorian Review generally sets two types of Articles. These are mainly Research Based Articles and (Non-Research) General Articles/ Essays on Emerging Issues. The length of a write-up should conveniently be limited in 3000 words. Dimorian Review is a volunteer initiative and there is no cost of publication (online) to be borne by the authors

Dimorian Review e-Journal uses double-blind peer review with regard to Research Articles. Research articles are reviewed at first on receipt by the Honorary Editorial Board before forwarding the same for review to the Peer Team/Honorary Technical Review Board. If necessary the same may be sent back to the authors for revision.  Research papers submitted to Dimorian Review should not be submitted elsewhere for consideration at the same time. Research articles reviewed by the Peer Team/Honorary Technical Review Board and on consultation of the Honorary Advisory Board, the Honorary Editorial Board needs to arrange publishing online. Maximum five research articles will be published in an issue/edition.

Essays on emerging issues are also selected for publication by following the double-blind peer review process and maximum five essays are published in an issue/edition.
