Open Access Policy

Canadian Academic Journals are open access Journal Publisher, provides free access to the researchers and the students to its full text of articles. Students and researchers don’t need to pay or get any permission to read, copy, download and distribute the published work. Authors are welcomed to submit their research work that meets the general criteria of significance and scientific excellence. Accepted papers will be published approximately after one week of acceptance.

Paper Language

Authors need to submit the manuscript written in English language. Manuscripts written in other than English language are not accepted.

Paper Submission

Respected authors may submit their manuscript through online submission system. For this, they are supposed to follow some easy steps.

  1. First register yourself with the portal, otherwise if you already have an account then Log in.
  2. From Journal List select the journal in which you want to submit your manuscript.
  3. Click on the submit manuscript key located on the right side of the page.
  4. Fill the online submission form, attach the manuscript file and then submit.

Note: Authors are requested to submit the manuscript in MS Word not in PDF or any other format.

Peer Review Process

The goal of peer review is to assess the quality of articles submitted for publication in a scholarly journal. Before an article is deemed appropriate to be published in any of CA’s peer-reviewed journals, it must undergo the following process:

  1. The author of the article must submit it to the journal editor who forwards the article to experts in the field. Because the reviewers specialise in the same scholarly area as the author, they are considered the author’s peers (hence “peer review”).
  2. These impartial reviewers are charged with carefully evaluating the quality of the submitted manuscript.
  3. The peer reviewers check the manuscript for accuracy, plagiarism and similarity index and assess the validity of the research methodology and procedures.
  4. If appropriate, they suggest revisions. If they find the article lacking in scholarly validity and rigour, they reject it.

Because a peer-reviewed journal will not publish articles that fail to meet the standards established for a given discipline, peer-reviewed articles that are accepted for publication exemplify the best research practices in a field.

Peer Review Criteria and Considerations

Overall Impact. Reviewers will provide an overall impact/priority score to reflect their assessment of the likelihood for the project to exert a sustained, powerful influence on the research field(s) involved.
Scored Review Criteria. Reviewers will consider each of the review criteria in the determination of scientific and technical merit, and give a separate score for each. An application does not need to be strong in all categories to be judged likely to have major scientific impact. For example, a project that by its nature is not innovative may be essential to advance a field.

All submitted manuscripts are reviewed by qualified reviewers from the Editorial Team. After completion of the review the reviewers provide the review report for the assistance of the author to revise the paper. This review report is sent to the corresponding author asking him to revise the manuscript.

After receiving the revised file from the author, it is forwarded to the reviewers for review again. The reviewers review the manuscript again and provide the review report to the Editorial Board. The Editor-in-Chief takes the final decision of acceptance/rejection according to the final review report. Below is the peer review process taken by CA Journals.

A manuscript will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that it is being submitted to CA Journals 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 authorise one of them to correspond with the particular Journal for all matters related to the manuscript. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. On submission, editors review all submitted manuscripts initially for suitability for formal review. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific or technical flaws, or lack of a significant message are rejected before proceeding for formal peer-review. Manuscripts that are unlikely to be of interest to the CA Journals members and readers are also liable to be rejected at this stage itself.

Manuscripts that are found suitable for publication in any of CA Journals are sent to two or more expert reviewers. The reviewers should not be affiliated with the same institution as the author/s. However, the selection of these reviewers is at the sole discretion of the Editor-in-Chief. The journal follows a double-blind review process, wherein the reviewers and authors are unaware of each other’s identity. Every manuscript is also assigned to a member of the Editorial Board, 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. The whole process of submission of the manuscript to final decision and sending and receiving proofs is completed online. To achieve faster and greater dissemination of knowledge and information, the various Journals publish articles online as ‘Ahead of Print’ upon acceptance, while print copies take two weeks to accomplish.

All manuscripts must be submitted on-line through the website First time users will have to register at this website. Registration is free but mandatory. Registered authors can keep track of their articles after logging into the site using their username and password. Authors do not have to pay for submission and processing. Payment for publication of articles is only when it has been accepted for publication.

The submitted manuscripts that are not as per the “Instructions to Authors” would be returned to the authors for technical correction, before they undergo editorial/ peer-review. Generally, the manuscript should be submitted in the form of two separate files:

  1. Title Page/First Page File/covering letter:

This file should provide

  1. The type of manuscript (original article, case report, review article, Ethics Forum, Education Forum, Letter to editor, Images, etc.) title of the manuscript, running title, names of all authors/ contributors (with their highest academic degrees, designation and affiliations) and name(s) of department(s) and/ or institution(s) to which the work should be credited. All information which can reveal your identity should be here. Use text/rtf/doc files. Do not zip the files.
  2. The total number of pages, total number of photographs and word counts separately for abstract and for the text (excluding the references, tables and abstract), word counts for introduction + discussion in case of an original article;
  3. Source(s) of support in the form of grants, equipment or all of these;
  4. Acknowledgement, if any. One or more statements should specify:
  1. contributions that need acknowledging but do not justify authorship, such as general support by a departmental chair;
  2. acknowledgments of technical help; and
  3. acknowledgments of financial and material support, which should specify the nature of the support. This should be included in the title page of the manuscript and not in the main article file.
  1. If the manuscript was presented as part at a meeting, the organisation, place, and exact date on which it was read. A full statement to the editor about all submissions and previous reports that might be regarded as redundant publication of the same or very similar work. Any such work should be referred to specifically, and referenced in the new paper. Copies of such material should be included with the submitted paper, to help the editor decide how to handle the matter.
  2. Registration number in case of a clinical trial and where it is registered (name of the registry and its URL)
  3. Conflicts of Interest of each author/contributor. A statement of financial or other relationships that might lead to a conflict of interest, if that information is not included in the manuscript itself or in an authors’ form
  4. Criteria for inclusion in the authors/contributors’ list
  5. A statement that the manuscript has been read and approved by all the authors, that the requirements for authorship as stated earlier in this document have been met, and that each author believes that the manuscript represents honest work, if that information is not provided in another form (see below); and
  6. The name, address, e-mail, and telephone number of the corresponding author, who is responsible for communicating with the other authors about revisions and final approval of the proofs, if that information is not included on the manuscript itself.
  1. Blinded Article file:

The manuscript must not contain any mention of the authors’ names or initials or the institution at which the study was done or acknowledgements. Page headers/running title can include the title but not the authors’ names. Manuscripts not in compliance with The Journal’s blinding policy will be returned to the corresponding author. The main text of the article, beginning from Abstract till References (including tables) should be in this file. Use rtf/doc files. Do not zip the files. Limit the file size to 12. Do not incorporate images in the file. The pages should be numbered consecutively, beginning with the first page of the blinded article file.

  1. Images:

Submit good quality color images. Each image should be less than 4 MB in size. Size of the image can be reduced by decreasing the actual height and width of the images (keep up to 1800 x 1200 pixels or 5-6 inches). Images can be submitted as jpeg files. Do not zip the files. Legends for the figures/images should be included at the end of the article file.

  1. The contributors’/copyright transfer form

Template provided on acceptance of an auricle has to be submitted in original with the signatures of all the contributors within three days of submission via email ( as a scanned image. High resolution images (up to 5 MB each) can be sent by email.

CA Journals accept manuscripts written in English. It is the responsibility of authors/ contributors to obtain permissions for reproducing any copyrighted material.
