RIGHTS & RESPONSIBILITIES
At Boston Research Journals, we believe that success comes from teamwork.
We aspire to reach the top standards with the collective participation of our council, the Publications Board, the Special Interest Associations, editors-in-chief, editorial boards, program chairs and committees; which would grant every working body of people, together with readers and libraries, to engage impartially and productively. With this conviction, Boston Research Journals determines this document that encapsulates the rights and duties of readers, editors, authors, reviewers, committees, program chairs and libraries. All the rights and responsibilities are undoubtedly implied for the professional staff even though there is no direct reference. For instance, the rights of editors and authors can particularly be achieved by sound service from the professional staff.Inversely, the certified staff will not be able to achieve any success on their
Our fundamental objective is that the publication process endures for the support of membership (Fellows and Associates and Registered Users of Website etc.) of the Boston Research Journals. Boston Research Journals has confidence in its accomplishments that should be deduced commonly in details of our high-quality, cost-effective circulation of knowledge and not barely in terms of a publication’s organization. We stress on the process of publication, which includes papers, web postings, technical reports, audio and video presentations, conferences etc. in Print Journals, 3D Virtual Journals, eJournals and Interactive Journals. The quality of the publications and the assignments that each person considers are medium to these extensive aspirations. This document pertains to journals, books, eBooks, magazines, newsletters, conference proceedings and transactions published by Boston Research Journals, cited in this document in general terms as publications. When specific privileges and duties are restricted to a few subsets of our publications, those subsets would be explicitly acclaimed. Although few exceptions to this policy may take place. These exceptions are commonly raised in Boston Research Journals’ professionally-managed magazines and news services with certain well-timed requirements. Yet, the aim of these publications, as for Boston Research Journals’ alternative publications, is to contribute the finest in material services.
Authors or institutes submit their work to Boston Research Journals and we take it as a responsibility to turn it into a high-quality paper.
They trust Boston Research Journals because they value its stature and its cost-effective publication amenities as a place to present their ideas (usually research) to the community or to this website. In return, we expect back that authors submit work that is ready for publication and that authors are responsive to practical requests throughout the publication process. There are four crucial components in creating a quality publication where the author has both rights and responsibilities in their interactivity with the Boston Research Journals: authorship, review of the submission, processing of an accepted work, and publication. Given any conflict, we are only liable to return actual author charges, which is paid by author by any means.
Authors should associate with us following the ethical values concerning the processing of content of their work. Particularly, Boston Research Journals presumes authors to respect intellectual property rights of others in manuscripts submitted for publication by Boston Research Journals. Authors should not plagiarize others’ work. Finally, authors should not expect Boston Research Journals to look for remittance for unethical use of their work. (See the Boston Research Journals Policy on Plagiarism for more details.)
Thus, Boston Research Journals expects authors to
- Obtain applicable permission for the reuse and reclaim of content copyrighted by somebody
- Whenever reusing sections of their own already published work in a new manuscript, explicitly state within the text of the manuscript which sections were published elsewhere, and include references (mentioning reference is compulsory).
- Legally recognize all persons who have direct contributions to the
When an author submits a manuscript, a confidential double-blind review process takes place. The goal of the review process is to make a relevant, appropriate and timely conclusion (can take 7 to 15 days or more depending on the research performed) on whether a submission should be published.

To facilitate this process, a submission should follow publication necessities and authors should be proactive in responding to questions.

Reviewers (Peer Reviewers, those who review a research)
Boston Research Journals identifies that the quality of a judged publication relies mainly on the unbiased judgment of their volunteer reviewers. An editorial board or program committee should approach an individual reviewer seldom and only with a manuscript that both comes under the reviewer’s expertise and meets the journal guidelines. (Please note that some magazines/journals do not formally review all articles, and that many newsletters and some magazines do not arbitrate articles.)
Thus, reviewers can expect Boston Research Journals to:
● Maintain their anonymity.
● Find out if they are willing to review before the submission is sent to them. The deadline for the review will follow its request.
● Convey guidelines on what comprises a reviewing conflict of interest.
● Ask them to review only submissions for which the editor feels they have expertise, and request only a restricted number of reviews over the course of a year.
● Realize that they have the right to decline a requested review.
● Give a relevant length of time for a review, where the length of time depends on the publication.
● Not again and again ask them to make up for delays presented by
other participants in the reviewing cycle.
● Do not ask them to give reviews for submissions that do not satisfy either specified publications requirements (e.g., page count restrictions) or which are obviously inappropriate for the publication.
● Acknowledge their efforts in the publication process, while maintaining confidentiality of which submissions they reviewed.
● Can inform them of the editorial decisions for the submission, including
the author-visible portion of reviews.
● May tell them who will see their review. Realize that reviewers own the copyright for their reviews.
And Boston Research Journals expects reviewers to :
● Inform the demanding editor any possible conflicts of interest.
● Review the submission by the pre-decided deadline.
● Identify the charter and review standards and processes of the publication.
● Read the complete submission carefully, prepare the review
carefully, implement skilled judgment, use suitable language in a review, and fill out provided review forms in full.
● Sufficiently document in their review the reasons behind their recommendations.
● Review consecutive revisions of a submission that they originally
reviewed, should the editor feel that is relevant.
● Maintain the confidentiality of the existence and status of submissions of which the reviewer becomes aware.
● Do not use/practice results from submitted works in their works,
research or grant proposals, unless and until that material appears in other publicly available formats, such as a technical report or as a published work.
● Do not distribute/allocate/give a submission to anyone unless permitted by the editor handling the submission.
● Maintain the anonymity of the other reviewers, should they become known to that reviewer.
Policy on Reviewer Anonymity
The “Rights and Responsibilities in Boston Research Journals Publishing” promises that Boston Research Journals will preserve the anonymity of reviewers. Editors and administrators of Boston Research Journals publications must keep the individualities of all reviewers of particular manuscripts hidden from authors, other reviewers, and the public.
Recognition of reviewers may be revealed to members of a publication’s Editorial Board or to Boston Research Journals staff as needed to promote expert information in special conditions. In cases like these, identification of a critic may also be told to other reviewers of the similar manuscript, provided that the agreement of all affected reviewers is received. Reviewers must also maintain the confidentiality of reviewer identities, as well as the reviews themselves, that are communicated to them at any period.
Refrain from the anonymity policy is made in the case of review of conference submissions by a program board. It is acceptable to make reviews and the identity of reviewers apparent to the entire package committee, provided that all committee members and solicited reviewers are informed in advance of this practice. (A further refrain occurs when a program committee associate is also an author. Names of reviewers cannot be told to the author.)
This policy does not avoid the simple citation of all reviewers of a particular volume or proceedings without reference to particular manuscripts for the purpose of acknowledgement, or the visibility of reviewer’s names in a composite database for use by the editors.
