IMRA has collaborated with internationally reputed, refereed, double blind-reviewed journal with high ranking and impact factor. These collaborations results into an opportunity for the IMRA Conference participants and members to publish their research papers in the regular and / or special issues of these respected journals.

General Guidelines:

  1. All the IMRA conference participants (in person OR in absentia) and their co-authors (if any) are entitled to submit their full papers to the specific journal for the relevant conference as mentioned below.

  3. The participants can submit their any one paper to only one of the following Journals. Each paper will go through a double-blind review process and hence there may be revisions required or rejections during the editorial and review process.
