    4. Editorial policies
                    
    4.1 Peer review policy 

    A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to Pharmacognosy Magazine (Pharmacogn.Mag.) alone at that point in time and has not been published anywhere, simultaneously submitted, or already accepted for publication elsewhere. The journal expects that authors would authorize one of them to correspond with the Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are likely rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review.

    Following a preliminary triage to eliminate submissions unsuitable for Pharmacognosy Magazine all papers are sent out for review. The covering letter is important.

    Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in Pharmacognosy Magazine are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The journal follows an anonymized review process (double-anonymized peer review), wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identities. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers gives a final recommendation on the manuscript. The comments and suggestions (acceptance/ rejection/ amendments in manuscript) received from reviewers are conveyed to the corresponding author. If required, the author is requested to provide a point-by-point response to reviewers’ comments and submit a revised version of the manuscript. This process is repeated till reviewers and editors are satisfied with the manuscript. All manuscripts are reviewed, and the recommendations are sent to the Editor-in-Chief who then makes the final decision.
    Pharmacognosy Magazine is committed to delivering high quality, fast peer-review your paper, and as such has partnered with Clarivate Reviewer Recognition Service that seeks to track, verify and give credit for peer review. Reviewers for Pharmacognosy Magazine can opt in to Clarivate Reviewer Recognition Service in order to claim their reviews or have them automatically verified and added to their reviewer profile. Reviewers claiming credit for their review will be associated with the relevant journal, but the article name, reviewer’s decision and the content of their review is not published on the site.
