Special issues are important sections in all the journals published under Peertechz Publications Private Limited. Special Issue tempts the authors to write articles of high quality within the scope of the journal.
In order to make the concept of special issue easily understandable by the interested group of authors, we have segregated it in different stages:

Assortment of manuscripts depends on the motivating initial proposal. The editors may invite colleagues or other authors to submit their manuscripts. For this purpose, they can request the editorial office for an official Email ID. If the Editor is occupied in some other work they can seek the help of editorial office for inviting authors on his behalf.
Stage 2- Review and Revision of the special issue
Authors are suggested to oversee the flowchart for better understanding of Peertechz’s editorial review procedure.
Once a manuscript is submitted to a Special Issue, it will be checked by the Special Issue Editors/ Guest Editors/ Journal Quality Team as per the availability. This scrutiny is to ensure academic value, subject orientation and suitability for the peer review process.
After checking the suitability of the manuscript, the Lead Guest Editor ensures whether the submission is arising any conflict of interest of any community, in general. In case there is no conflict of interest, the Lead Guest Editor evaluates the manuscript on the quality basis.
