Editorial Policies


The Context is an international, refereed, open access e-journal of language, literary and cultural studies. Our editorial policies are given below:

Peer Review Policy

When the manuscript is received for consideration by email, it undergoes preliminary originality check with basic standards and adherence to the manuscript guidelines. If this is fulfilled article is provisionally accepted for peer-review. We follow double blind peer-review process, at the next stage article goes to precisely expert editorial board member and an external reviewer. After receiving positive review reports only, we accept the manuscript for publication and an intimation is sent to the author(s). If the article fails short in any area of presentation such remarks from the reviewers are forwarded to the author(s) for necessary revision. Revised article is expected within five days from the intimation; in case revised article is not received within stipulated time, publication of the scheduled issue proceeds without the awaited article and editor and publisher shall not be held responsible for any issue arising out of such conditions.
The editors reserve the right to delete and/or alter the content of an article as they deem it fit for publication.
