When a manuscript is received, the Managing Editor cum Editor in Chief glances through the article within 24 hours of reception. The paper is then forwarded to two reviewers who are given seven days to return the manuscript with their comments to the editorial manager. The reviewers’ recommendations determine whether a paper will be
-accepted as it is,
-accepted with minor revisions,
-accepted with major revisions (in which case, the paper will pass through another review process after re-submission) or
– rejected out rightly.
When a paper is accepted by one reviewer and rejected by another reviewer, the paper will be send to third reviewer whose decision is final.
The corresponding author will be notified on the decision of the reviewers’ within 10 days of submission of the manuscript. Letter of Acceptance is issued to the authors on reception of corrected copy of the manuscript and 50 US dollar handling/ publication charge.
On reception of corrected copy and handling/ publication charge, the paper will be composed and published online within 36 hours.
Thereafter, the printed copy will be available within the next two months. One hard copy of the published journal for each article will be sent to the corresponding author free of charge. Additional copies of the printed journal may be requested by authors at the cost of 30 USD each. The mode of payment will be send to the corresponding author by the editor after the acceptance of the paper.
IJASE is a monthly journal and several issues may be published within one month. Consequently, a paper may be published within 7 days of reception depending on the recommendations of the reviewers.
