Guideline for Authors :
Authors are requested to submit their papers electronically by using the Research Revolution
The manuscript will be sent for blind review to two experts anywhere in the world, and their decision will be final and binding. The editorial board reserves the right to condense or make changes in the paper.
In case of any clarification, authors should contact the publisher at firstname.lastname@example.org. We do not charge any fee from research candidate / academician at any step of this entire work.
Types of Submission :
The journal publishes the following types of contribution: (1) Full-length articles, (2) short, free-form squibs and discussion notes, (3) replies and rejoinders, (4) Reviews of Books (not more than five years old), (5) Review Articles on New Books.
Book Reviews :
Please note that the journal does not accept unsolicited reviews. Book reviews should critically discuss the book’s strengths and weaknesses, situate its contribution to the field and recommend it to a suitable readership. Most welcome are reviews of cutting-edge books. The journal also encourages reviews of books that escape global awareness because, for example, they are written in languages other than English. Reviews of edited volumes are welcomed, too, especially if their contents represent important new trends in research and scholarship. From time to time, the journal also publishes review articles, usually commissioned reviews of several books dealing with the same, or related, topic(s). Book reviews should not exceed, in general, 2,000 words; review articles should preferably not exceed 3,000 words. Effort should be made to submit a review within 3 months from receiving the review copy of the book. If a revision is necessary, the revised text should be submitted in a month at the latest.
Language – The text should be written in impeccable English (British Spelling/US American spelling is standard for Research Revolution; however, other native usages are accepted, but not a mixture of these). Italics are not to be used for common expressions of Latin origin, such as, i.e., viz., in vivo, et al., per se; italics are used for emphasis, and to render expressions quoted in the text in other languages than English. Lengthy quotation in foreign languages should be avoided except where necessary to document the examples given. All non-English quotations should be accompanied by an English translation and (in the case of examples given in the text) by a word-by-word rendering (and possibly a transliteration, in the case of foreign alphabets).
English – Authors are asked to use the Times New Roman/Arial font for the preparation of their manuscripts; this will ensure the best conversion when typesetting the paper. Only MS Word (.doc format) will be allowed.
Hindi – Kruti 10 font (normal) for Hindi, Sanskrit and Marathi Research papers. Only MS Word (.doc format) will be allowed.

A concise and factual abstract is required (maximum length of 100-120 words). The abstract should state the purpose of the research, the principal results, and significant conclusions briefly. An abstract is often referred to separately from the article, so it must be able to stand alone. References to the literature should preferably not occur in the abstract, but if essential, they must be cited as in the body text, with reference to a separate, brief list. Non-standard or uncommon abbreviations should be avoided, but if essential they must be defined at their first mention in the abstract itself.
Keywords – 3-4 Keywords, immediately after the abstract, provide a maximum of five keywords, avoiding general and plural terms and multiple concepts (avoid, for example, “pragmatics”, and do not use “and”, “of”). Be sparing with abbreviations: only abbreviations firmly established in the field may be eligible. These keywords will be used for indexing purposes.
Methods / Manuscript –
Results – Results should be clear and concise.
Discussion – This should explore the significance of the results of the work, not repeat them. A combined Results and Discussion section is often appropriate. Avoid extensive citations and discussion of published literature.
Conclusions – The main conclusions of the study may be presented in a short Conclusions section, which may stand alone or form a subsection of a Discussion or Results and Discussion section.
Appendices – If there is more than one appendix, they should be identified as A, B, etc. Formulae and equations in appendices should be given separate numbering: Eq. (A.1), Eq. (A.2), etc.; in a subsequent appendix, Eq. (B.1) and so on. Similarly, for tables and figures: Table A.1; Fig. A.1, etc.
