    The Editorial Board
    Members of the Editorial Board, which is international, are appointed by the Advisory Board of the Law Mantra India. The composition of the Board is such that there is a wide range of expert opinion covering most areas of research in Law and Social science.
    The Editors are supported by an international panel of Editorial Advisers. These are independent reviewers, who are expert each in their own specific field of Law and Social Science  and who review paper for the journal. The close association of the Advisers with the journal means that a high standard of reviewing can be maintained.
    Editors of review normally serve for a period of 3 years, although this may be extended for a further 4 years in some cases. The composition of the Advisory Panel is reviewed each year. The names of the members of the Editorial Board, Advisory Board and Editor Review Committee Members are published on the Journal’s website.
    Authors may suggest potential reviewers for their paper in the letter of submission, but the journal will usually regard such suggestions as a guide only and is under no obligation to follow them. Authors may also specify the names of those they wish to be excluded from the review process for a particular paper; in such cases their wishes are usually respected, unless, of course, in the opinion of the journal such a request unreasonably excludes all the expertise available to it in that legal area.

  • Review process : All manuscripts are considered to be confidential and are reviewed by members of Editorial Board, and qualified referees. Reviews are normally completed within 3 to 4 weeks from receipt of the manuscripts and the corresponding author will be notified of the editor’s decision to accept, reject, or require revision. Note that manuscripts may be editorially rejected without review, on the basis of lack of conformity to the standards set forth in these instructions. When requested for revision, authors must submit the revised version along with a point-by-point response to each reviewer and the editor. If the revision is not submitted within 30 days, the submission will be withdrawn and any revised version will be considered as a new submission. Additional time for revision is granted upon request, at the discretion of the editor. Manuscripts that have been rejected or withdrawn may be resubmitted with appropriate modifications based on the editor’s comments. In such cases, the revised version must be submitted as a new submission, accompanied by the former manuscript number and detailed response to original reviewers, but not be sent to the original editor directly.

    Notification of acceptance : Once a decision has been made on an article, the corresponding author will be notified. If the article is accepted, it will be entered into publication system and the corresponding author will receive an acknowledgement letter containing the production reference number, accompanied by an offprint order form and a copyright transfer form.
