Peer reviewing is the process required for standardizing any publications. Manuscript writing is an art. Though it appears to be simple there is a lot of effort required. Peer-reviewing is the process that eliminates articles that do not meet the standard of the journals and the scope of the journals. The study investigated authors' views on manuscript submissions to the publishing process. There are 375 samples selected for this study who have experienced publishing journals listed in refereed journals. For the selection of the sample 50 ScimagoJR Library and Information Science open access journals between 2019-2021 are verified by the authors.
