IBLL follows a double-blind review policy. The articles will be sent to referees (national/international) for blind review. Authors will be informed about the comments of the reviewers and will be required to revise the article accordingly if required.

Note: The Editor/Advisory Board reserves the right to make necessary editorial revisions. Opinions expressed in articles are those of the contributors and should not be attributed to the Department, the Editor or Editorial Board in any way.


Authors should be prompt with their manuscript revisions. If an Author cannot meet the deadline given, the Author should contact the IBLL’S ( Editor-in-Chief as soon as possible to determine whether a longer time period or withdrawal from the review process should be chosen as an exceptional case.

Multiple Submissions

An author should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

Authors must not submit to IBLL the same work, in whole or in part, to two places of publication at the same time, or at any time while the manuscript is under review, or has been previously published. It is also improper for an Author to submit a manuscript describing essentially the same research to more than one place of publication unless it is a resubmission of a manuscript rejected for, or withdrawn from publication. Thus, an author may not submit to IBLL, a work that is in whole or in part under review elsewhere, nor submit to another publication outlet a work that is in whole or in part under review at IBLL.

The manuscript must not have been previously published or accepted for publication elsewhere, either in whole (including book chapters) or in part (including paragraphs of text or exhibits), whether in English or another language.
