Editorial Guidelines

These are the Editorial Guidelines for the Review.

The abstract must not exceed 500 words in length and must not be less than 200 words in length.

The length of the following kinds of submissions are as follows:

  • Technical and Legal Articles (Long Articles): 4,000-10,000 words

  • Case Comments: 2,000-2,500 words

  • Book/Article Reviews: 2,000-2,500 words

  • The object and clarity of the manuscript decide its selection and publication process.

  • Co-authorship is allowed to a maximum of 5 authors.

  • All references should be done in the format of in-text citations following the ISO 690:2010 (First Element & Date) standard. No references are allowed whether in the format of endnotes or footnotes. However, footnotes providing further information or subjective notes are allowed. Use Springer LNCS for the format of the manuscript draft.

  • Also, kindly provide a Bibliography of List of References as well.

  • Provide your ORCiD (you can register for ORCiD for free at orcid.org)

  • Ensure the originality of the research work submitted. The work has to be fully referenced, and all authors should be accurately represented. Kindly get acknowledgement letters from co-authors before the submission for no objection, if your paper is accepted for publication. 

  • Our team will contact you after your paper selection for the due submission of your ORCiD.

  • The submission must be exclusive. It must not be published or submitted anywhere else, all, or in part. In case of submission anywhere else, the author should intimate the team clearly on this and get clearance from the Editorial Board if the same is approved based on the circumstances. 

  • Disclose sources of all data and third-party material, including previously unpublished work by the authors themselves.

  • Strictly avoid fabrication of research data as well as manipulation of existing data.

  • Openly declare any conflicts of interest – for example, if the research work was intended to benefit any particular service or institute in which the author’s interest lies. If the submitted work contains a significant conceptual or textual reproduction of the research work undertaken by/for such an institution, then kindly submit an acknowledgement letter from the relevant authority.

  • Expect accurate plagiarism checking measures. Submissions will be scrutinized for plagiarism of words, ideas, writings, information, illustration, graphic representations, printed and electronic materials, and any other original work. The correct citation is essential.

  • Do proper referencing in the submission by strictly following the recommended citation style. At any stage of the editorial/review process, the author(s) will be directed to undertake this themselves if the submission has not used proper referencing styles. Maintain good communication and cooperate fully with the editorial team.  

  • The manuscripts reviewed and approved by the Peer Reviewers and Editors will be published in our upcoming Volume of the Book with an ISBN. The Book may be available in other possible forms and forums. The team will be in the process of attainment of adequate recognition standards for the articles published, for which, we will contact you and intimate shortly.
