Peer Review Process

Reviewer Process:

  • Prospective Authors are invited to submit original papers not being considered for publication elsewhere.
  • Submissions will be judged on Appropriateness of the Topic, Conceptual Adequacy/ Mastery of Relevant Literature, Technical Adequacy (if applicable), Clarity of Presentation and Significance of Contribution to the Field.
  • All articles submitted to GSTF journals will be checked for plagiarism and must be submitted through EDAS.
  • Submissions will go through independent and professional “Blind Peer Review” process.
  • Authors will be notified via email on the outcome of the review process.
  • Authors can appeal for re-submission (after updating their manuscript as suggested by the reviewers) for further consideration.
Reviewer guidelines:
  • Reviewers are expected to handle submitted manuscript in confidence. Editors will periodically monitor the processes and advise reviewers with respect to ensuring compliance to academic integrity, ethical conduct and in enforcing academic rigour.

 

Open Access Policy

Journal Policies

GSTF is committed to keeping articles published in its journals in full compliance with Open Access principles and practices through GSTF Digital Library (http://dl6.globalstf.org) as well as Springer’s Open Access Platform Global Science Journal (www.springer.com/globalsciencejournals), for everyone. By default, GSTF publishes these articles under a Creative Commons Attribution Non Commercial (CC BY-NC 3.0) licence that allows reuse subject only to the use being non-commercial and to the article being fully attributed (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc/3.0) to GSTF. Articles funded by certain organisations that mandate publication with a Creative Commons Attribution (CC BY 3.0) licence, which may require reuse for commercial purposes are allowed, subject to the article being fully attributed to GSTF.

Access & Archiving

The manuscripts are archived in GSTF Digital Library (dl6.globalstf.org) and Springer’s Open Access publishing platform for independent journals - Global Science Journals (GSJ) and accessible by anyone at anytime.

Copyright for Authors

GSTF requires the author(s) to grant exclusive world-wide license in perpetuity, in all forms, format and media to a) publish b) distribute c) display d) store e) reprint f) translate into other languages and reproduce the paper g) the inclusion of electronic links of the paper to third party material where-ever it may be hosted h) and/or license to any third party to do any or all of the above.

The author(s) may use their own papers for non-commercial purposes by acknowledging first publication in GSTF Journal and giving full reference and/or web link as appropriate.

Misconduct

All journal articles submitted via EDAS will be scrutinized for any plagiarism and/or academic misconduct. In the event of complaints received against an author the board will investigate and may request the author to clarify and/or reject the submission for review.

Multiple, Redundant or Concurrent Publication

An author should not in general publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behavior and is unacceptable.

Acknowledgement of Sources

Proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.

Appeals

Authors can appeal against the editorial decisions about their submissions. Please contact appeals@globalstf.org. GSTF will respond to appeals from authors within 2-3 weeks.

GSTF extends free access to individuals and University libraries and fully embraces Open Access policies.

Revenue sources

From inception, GSTF receives revenue from a range of sources which includes rights, royalties, training programs, professional certifications programs, consulting, government and/or private funding and/or grants, sponsorships, conferences, sale of reprints, and open access publication fees. Separation is maintained between the editorial team and the advertising and sponsorship sales teams.

GSTF Journals do not generate any income via subscription fees or from pay per view. The publication fees of the journal will subsidize costs involved in provision and maintenance of publication infrastructure, operational and administrative costs including print and shipping, processing of manuscripts through peer-reviews, hosting services of the on-line libraries amongst others. The author may be able to defray the processing fees by securing funds from their institutions and/or research funding.

Permission for Authors:

Author(s) of GSTF Journals may use their own articles for non-commercial purposes without written approval from GSTF but must acknowledge first publication in GSTF journal and must include a full reference ad/or web-link else will be in violation of the license.
