Peer Review Policy
Zibeline International Publishing is committed to providing high quality articles and uphold the publication ethics to advance the intellectual agenda of science. We expect our authors to comply with, best practice in publication ethics as well as in quality of their articles.
Few of the authors request withdrawal of manuscript from the publication process after submission or after publication. In some instances, the request for withdrawal is made when the manuscript is only a few days away from publication in the journal. This may cause the time waste by the editors, reviewers and the editorial staff.
To evade gratuitous withdrawal of manuscripts Zibeline International Publishing declared the below withdrawal policy. The corresponding author or co-authors should address the below statement before sending a request for withdrawal.
• All authors include corresponding and co-authors should confirm the number of authors, authorship, approval and integrity of the manuscript before submission. In case of any differences of opinion, address the concerns of all the authors before submitting the manuscript for publication.
• Research students or Researchers should take prior permission from their guides and professors before sending/submitting their manuscripts to Zibeline International journals.
• Authors should follow the publication ethics (details are included in Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement at every journal guide for authors page) followed by COPE Guidelines https://publicationethics.org/)
• Manuscript is appropriately withdrawn from any previous publisher (if submitted).
• It is unacceptable to withdraw a manuscript from a journal because it is being accepted by another journal.
• Before submitting the manuscript, authors should carefully check the facts and data presented in the manuscripts are accurate and error-free.
• All authors need agree for publishing the articles on the specific journal before submission.
• Advanced stage in the editorial process, when peer reviews were near completion is unacceptable unless there are compelling reasons.
• Withdrawal of a manuscript will be permitted only for the most compelling and unavoidable reasons only during peer review process but not after acceptance or during production stage. For withdrawal of a manuscript authors need to submit an “Article withdrawal Form”, signed by all authors mentioning the reason for withdrawal to the Editorial Office. The form is available from the editorial office of the journal. Authors must not assume that their manuscript has been withdrawn until they have received appropriate notification to this effect from the editorial office.
• After paper is accepted or during Galley Proof stages in production, it is unacceptable to withdraw any accepted manuscript. In case author still want withdraw author needs to pay a full actual publication charge which is 350$ for accepted manuscript as withdrawal penalty awhile are waived off for the authors as free journals since these charges are sponsored by the donators. However once article withdrawn by author after acceptance and publication full charges shall be imposed as withdrawal penalty to authors and publisher is not liable on this.
• If the author withdraws a manuscript after publication, the full article publication charges which is 350$ as withdrawal penalty, shall be paid by the authors.
• If the authors do not reply to communication from the editorial office, even after multiple reminders, at any stage of the publication process; Zibeline International Journals holds all rights to disclose the conduct of the authors and content of the manuscript without further approval from the authors, and cannot be held responsible for the consequences arising from it.
In a case where a manuscript has taken more than six months’ time for review process, that allows the author to withdraw manuscript without paying any charges.
Manuscript withdrawal charges
