Contemporary Literary Review India is a peer-reviewed and double-blind reviewed journal. It follows a strong editorial process. Selection is based on merit of the material, though we aim to publish as many writers as possible. Given the fact that we receive hundreds of submissions each reading cycle, we select around not more than 60% of the submissions received. Our aim is to promote both new and established writers. We generally take 4-6 weeks to reply on a submission. However, it may take long in some cases.
CLRI promotes the writers published with it. We inform writers to participate to other literary events, journals, and entities whenever there is an opportunity. We nominate our writers to various literary prizes and awards.
CLRI believes in promoting arts, literature and knowledge to the people. CLRI therefore provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
