PEER REVIEW & PLAGIARISM POLICY
This journal uses double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. Thus, authors should ensure that their paper is accompanied with a separate Title page and their manuscript does not contain any information that leads to author’s identification. Submit the Title Page containing the Authors details and Blinded Manuscript with no author details as 2 separate files. The title page should include the title, authors’ names and affiliations, and a complete address for the corresponding author including telephone and e-mail address.
Authors are requested to take utmost care in preparing their manuscripts. It is important that your submissions are free from spelling, grammatical, typographical mistakes or any kind of objectionable content in order to be processed for review. Ensure that the manuscripts are prepared according to the recommended format. It is vital to check that the manuscripts are complete; sources are properly acknowledged, presented in a clear and good language and completely free from plagiarism of any kind. The editors of TDJ have rights to accept, suggest modifications and also to reject the articles if needed. Any copied content will be removed immediately and the author would be denied of further publication in The Dawn Journal.
