Complaint Policy

We aim to respond to and resolve all complaints quickly and constructively. The procedures to investigate and resolve complaints followed by IJRASB Journal aims to be fair and balanced for those making complaints and for those being complained about.

For Appeal against editorial decisions

If the authors disagree with the editorial decision on their manuscripts they have a right to appeal. Authors who wish to appeal an editorial decision should contact the Editor-in-Chief of the specific journal. In such cases the Editor-in-Chief will review the manuscript, editorial and peer reviewers' comments and give his/her decision for accepting or rejecting a manuscript. Editor-in-Chief may, if so required, send the manuscript to a new handling editor for a fresh editorial review and to new referees for peer review. Decision of the Editor-in-Chief in such case will be final.

How to make a complaint

The procedure to make a complaint is easy. The complaint can be made by writing an e-mail. Please email to: editor@ijrasb.com. All complaints will be acknowledged within three working days.
