Quality Paper Evaluation Through Quick Analysis

Each manuscript is submitted to a relevant ICSR Society (as decided by the author). The corresponding ICSR Society appoints 3 associate editors and one Executive editor through a double blind review process (the author, the three associate editors and the executive editor do not know each other). The editors evaluate the manuscript at the scale of 100 for each of the following criteria –

  • Originality of the work
  • Significance of the contribution
  • Understanding of the Author
  • Innovation and practical application
  • Clarity of thoughts and simplicity of presentation
  • Preliminary Knowledge of the author about the subject

The paper is evaluated independently by the 4 editors (one executive editor and 3 associate editors) within five days of its submission through QUICK Analysis and QUICK Index (weighted average of the marks awarded by the 4 editors) of the paper is determined. QUICK Analysis of the manuscript makes the evaluation process fast, fair and transparent.

QUICK Analysis is a unique and innovative methodology of paper evaluation devised and followed only by ICSR and is based on Quality (which is average of Originality and Significance), Understanding, Innovation, Clarity and Knowledge of the manuscript.

QUICK Index of manuscript ‘x’ represented as QUICK(x) is given as:

Where Q(x), U(x),I(x),C(x) and K(x) are the weighted average of the marks obtained by the manuscript 'x' for the parameters Quality, Understanding, Innovation, Clarity and Knowledge. The weightage of the marks awarded by executive editor is three times the weightage of marks awarded by three Associate Editors. The manuscript is approved for publication only if the QUICK Index of the manuscript is more than 65%.

QUICK Analysis is a unique and innovative methodology of paper evaluation devised and followed only by ICSR and is based on Quality (which is average of Originality and Significance), Understanding, Innovation, Clarity and Knowledge of the manuscript.
