Peer Review Policy

IJAST Peer Review Policy

The peer review process is double blind.


-Both authors and referees are kept anonymous.


-Manuscripts may be rejected without peer review by the editor-in-chief if they do not comply with the instructions for authors or if they are beyond the scope of the journal.


-After a manuscript has been accepted for publication, i.e. after referee-recommended revisions are complete, the author will not be permitted to make changes that constitute departures from the manuscript that was accepted by the editor.


-Before publication, the galley proofs are always sent to the authors for corrections.


-Mistakes or omissions that occur due to some negligence on our part during final printing will be rectified in an errata section in a later issue.


-This does not include those errors left uncorrected by the author in the galley proof.
