Peer Review Policy

         International Journal of Innovative Research in Engineering (IJIRE) (Online), Bi-monthly international journal for publication of new ideas founded by academicians, educationist, engineers and corporate people. The research results and fundamental advancement are all aspects of Innovative Research in Advanced Engineering & Technology and various engineering disciplines, etc. IJIRE is a scholarly open access, Double Blind Peer Review Journal which helps to academic person as well as student community. IJIRE provides the academic community and industry for the submission of original research and applications related to Various Engineering discipline and Advanced Technologies.

Reviewers play a central role in scholarly publishing. IJIRE uses double-blind peer review process, which means that both the reviewer(s) and author(s) identities are concealed from the reviewer(s), and vice versa, throughout the review process. This means that the reviewer(s) of the paper won’t get to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) won’t get to know the identity of the reviewer(s). Peer review helps validate research, establish a method by which it can be evaluated, and increase networking possibilities within research communities. Despite criticisms, peer review is still the only widely accepted method for research validation.

All submitted papers will be reviewed by double blind peer review process which may take minimum 01 to 03 weeks from the date of submission. We are advising to all the author(s), do not submit same paper to the multiple journals. You should wait for review status of paper.
