Peer Review

Reviewers play a pivotal role in scholarly publishing. The peer review system exists to validate academic work, helps to improve the quality of published research, and increases networking possibilities within research communities. ICDIP 2021 relies on the Double-blind peer review process to uphold the quality and validity of individual articles and the proceedings that publish them.

Double-blind review
Both the reviewer and the author are anonymous in this model. Some advantages of this model are listed below.
▪ Author anonymity limits reviewer bias, for example based on an author's gender, country of origin, academic status or previous publication history.
▪ Articles written by prestigious or renowned authors are considered on the basis of the content of their papers, rather than their reputation.
