The IJBF has a two-stage review process. In the first stage, each paper must be initially evaluated by at least one editor to decide that a paper should go to a reviewer. If a paper passes through screening at this level, the paper is sent to two referees one from Sri Lanka and other from abroad for blinded review with detailed comments.
The review process may take one/two months. Researcher will be requested to incorporate the suggestions of the referees.
In case of acceptance of the paper(s), IJABF reserves the right of making modifications in the final draft of the research paper to suit the journal’s standard and requirement.
