Decision on the Publication of Articles
The Chief Editor and the Editor of Vimarsh- An Endeavour to Share Knowledge are responsible for deciding which of the articles, accepted for publication after undergoing double blind peer review, should be published. The Chief Editor and the Editor may be guided by the policies of the journal's Editorial Board and subjected to such legal requirements regarding copyright infringement and plagiarism.

Fair Play
The editor should evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.
The editorial policies of the journal should encourage transparency, honest reporting, and the editor should ensure that peer reviewers and authors have a clear understanding of what is expected of them. The editor shall use the journal’s standard electronic submission system for all journal communications.

The Chief Editor, the Editor and any editorial staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author(s), reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher.

Disclosure and Conflicts of Interest
Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used by anyone who has a view of the manuscript (while handling it) in his or her own research without the express written consent of the author.
