The paper developed a framework for deciding the novelty of submitted manuscripts. The importance of novelty and objective decision of the novelty of submitted manuscripts is identified. A brief exposition on the meaning of novelty is presented and used as basis to form mathematical expressions to quantify the novelty of submitted manuscripts. The developed framework will be found more useful in objective decision of the novelty of submitted manuscripts as opposed to the current frustrating subjective methodology adopted by editors and reviewers world over.
