Selection Criteria
 
The editorial board of the Rabindra Bharati Journal of Philosophy has as its members, besides the departmental teaching faculty, the Honourable Vice Chancellor of Rabindra Bharati University and two experts from other universities who are renowned for their expertise in their respective fields of specialization. Articles are invited through wide circulation of notification using print and online media. Once requisite numbers of articles are submitted for publication, the board meets to unanimously decide over the names of referees to whom the articles are to be sent for evaluation. In case of any dispute, the decisions of the external experts are final. The board has a recommended list of referees to which new names are added if necessary. The referees are requested to submit their report clearly stating in it whether the article is recommended or not recommended for publication or needs revision. In order to be considered for publication, an article has to be recommended by both the referees. If revision is suggested, the revised articles are again sent to the same set of referees for re-evaluation. Authors whose articles cannot be published are duly notified. If asked for, they are given access to the reviewers’ comments on their articles (with the reviewers’ names removed). 
 
Record of the proceedings of the meetings of the editorial board, signed by the members present, is maintained.
