Focus and Scope

Bangladesh Journal of Scientific and Industrial Research, a globally recognized Journal, publishes original articles, short communications and reviews on all aspects of scientific, agricultural and industrial research. The scope of the journal covers a vast range of scientific, agricultural and industrial disciplines.

Peer Review Process

  • A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to BJSIR 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 and given a Manuscript Number.
  • On submission, editors review all the submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for a formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message may be rejected before proceeding for a formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the BJSIR readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.
  • Manuscript that is found suitable for publication in BJSIR is sent to one expert reviewer for Peer Review.
  • The Journal follows a double blind review process, wherein the reviewer and author are unaware of each other’s identity.
  • Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision 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.
  • Manuscripts accepted for publication are copy edited for grammar, punctuation, print style, and format.
  • Page proofs are sent to the corresponding author. The corresponding author is expected to return the corrected proofs within three days. It may not be possible to incorporate corrections received after that period. 
  • To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the journal accepts articles within one month.
