Peer Review

Journal of Obstetrics and Gynecology of India (JOGI) has a double-blind peer review system in place which attempts to ensure the quality of each article before it is published.

There are over 500 peer reviewers who are leading experts in their field are registered with JOGI. All articles are submitted online by the authors. After technical scrutiny, they are assigned to the editor in chief (EIC) for an initial assessment. Each article is scanned by Ithenticate software and duplicate submission checking is also done. The results are also checked manually. If the similarity index is high, then the article is either rejected or returned to the author for reworking.

If the editor-in-chief feels that an article is out of scope, not of optimum quality, or has declared potential conflicts, it is subjected to an editorial discussion forum. The feedback is taken from editorial board members; the decision of taking it ahead for further processing is made by the majority, keeping in mind the ethics of the journal. Articles that are of good quality and are found suitable for target readership of JOGI are subjected to a peer-review process for detailed scrutiny. It is made sure that the articles are sent to subject experts for detailed analysis. A systematic procedure is in place for evaluation of each article submitted for potential publication to improve the scientific quality of contents. If reviewers' comments are unfavorable or they recommend revisions, such decisions are communicated to authors. Those articles which sustain the detailed scrutiny by reviewers and editors, a provisional decision of acceptance is made and after thorough pre-acceptance checking, the decision of final acceptance is made and communicated to the author immediately. Both initial and pre-acceptance checking ensures that ethical requirements are complete, to produce a high-quality article. Turn-around time is generally 1-2 months for rejection and 4-6 months for acceptance
