The basis for reviewing papers is that they have not been simultaneously submitted to another journal or conference (double submission) and do not include any plagiarised text. The submitted articles are reviewed by AJAC using a double-blind approach.
The length of the review process varies between papers, and many factors affect the time it takes to review a paper. The time it takes for an associate editor to be assigned, and for available, qualified reviewers to be located depends on the complexity and the type of material submitted for review. Each publication makes a concerted effort to keep the review time to a minimum which is consistent with keeping the publication’s reputation for quality and integrity. Each submission placed into review is sent to at least two reviewers. Author(s) may indicate the reason for requesting or excluding reviewers during the submission process if any.
Submissions are first evaluated by the Editors and by the members of the Editorial Boards within two weeks. If the manuscript is considered suitable for publication, it is sent to at least two reviewers.
