Journal will be published in January, May and September of every year.
The manuscript will be reviewed for possible
publication with the understanding that it is
being submitted to JPID alone at that point in
time and has not been published anywhere,
simultaneously submitted or already accepted
for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that
the ‘corresponding author’ authorised by all the
contributors will communicate with the journal for
all matters related to the manuscript. The order
of naming contributors should be based on the
relative contribution of the contributor towards the
study and writing the manuscript. Once submitted
the order cannot be changed without written
consent of all the contributors. Conflicts of interest
/ competing interests, if any, must be disclosed. All
manuscripts received will be duly acknowledged.
Submitted manuscripts will initially be reviewed
by the Editors. Manuscripts with insufficient
originality, serious scientific/ technical flaws or
lack of a significant message are rejected before
proceeding for formal review. Manuscripts that are
found suitable for publication in JIPD are sent to
two or more expert reviewers. The selection of these
reviewers is at the sole discretion of the Editor.
The journal follows a double blind review process,
wherein the reviewers and the authors are unaware
of each other’s identity. Every manuscript will be assigned to a member of the editorial team, who
based on the comments from the reviewers makes
a final decision on the manuscript. The authors
will be asked to modify the manuscript if needed.
The comments and suggestions received from
the reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding
author. The whole process of submission of the
manuscript to the final decision and sending and
receiving proofs is completed online. Manuscripts
