3. All the submitted articles will be sent for “blind peer review”.  Articles will be reviewed by two persons.  Once the editorial team decides to accept the paper for publication, the authors may be asked to do minor changes, editorial or otherwise, and the comments of the reviewers may be shared with the author.  The process may take up to three months for a final decision to accept/reject the submitted article. As soon as the team makes the decision, it will be communicated to the author. Articles accepted for publication can take up to 12 months from the date of acceptance to appear in print. The editorial team also reserves the right to make requisite changes to titles, subheadings, abstracts, keywords, etc. The decision of the editorial team is final.

V.  A Few General Guidelines for the Writers:

1.     Respecting the Copyright: Make sure that the authors do not infringe the existing copyright of any material already published.

2.     Approach: Articles are to be descriptive and reflective. Avoid pejorative and polemical language.

3.     Copyright: No published article or part thereof should be reproduced in any form without the prior permission of the author(s). A soft/hard copy of the author(s)’s approval should be sent to GG.

4.     Abbreviations and Diacritical Signs: Use the abbreviations and diacritical signs that are commonly accepted and known. For the diacritical signs we will be using the font Times NR Routledge.

5.     Electronic Format: The Editors will prefer to receive the article as an e-mail attachment in MS Word.

6.     Language: Articles are to be written in English. The accepted British spellings (as given in Oxford Dictionary) are preferred. Use inclusive language, such as individual, person, the human, instead of man. 

7.   The copyright: The Copyright of all articles published in GG belongs to the author or to the organization where the author is employed, as determined by the author’s terms of employment. 

GG will have the right over the articles to be reproduced in a book form, or in other media and/or other language editions, provided the name of the author is printed clearly.

1.     Permission for Reproduction: GG has no objection to authors republishing or revising theirarticles for other publications. However, the republished article must mention prominently that a version of the article first appeared in GG. It must also include the publication details along with the URL of the original GG article.

2.     Tables and Figures: Please cite each table or figure in the main text. Use a table or figure only when it amplifies and illustrates the discussion in the text. Please take care to list all units in a table/figure. List all legends in a figure. All sources should be mentioned in full.

3.     Electronic Sources: Citations of electronic sources should include an author or editor, the title of the text, date, the title of the website, the electronic address, and page or paragraph numbers. The date, when the source was accessed, is crucial to the argument; include it in brackets at the end.

Citations of books, journal articles, periodicals, and other sources published online should follow GG style for traditional citations as closely as possible, with
the addition of the electronic address or URL. Citation of online sources of a publication/article that was originally published in print should be an addition and not the only citation. 
Citations to online postings and email messages must include the date they were posted or sent.

1.     Non-English Terms: Give the term in italics.

2.     Contributors are cautioned against plagiarism and excessive self-referencing. Figures, graphs, and tables must be used sparingly to avoid repetition of content. All supplementary files such as figures, tables, maps, etc., must be provided in MS Office (Word/ Excel) or other editable formats, wherever possible.
