FOR AUTHORS

The publication process is as follows:

  • Submission. When a manuscript is submitted to the journal, it is assigned to a member of the Board of Editors. It is the responsibility of the corresponding author to inform the coauthors of the manuscript’s status throughout the submission, review, and publication processes. The reviewers operate under strict guidelines and are expected to complete their reviews expeditiously. Our Editors decide whether initial submissions are appropriate for in-depth peer review, usually in consultation with members of the Board of Reviewing Editors.

  • Assignation. Editor assigns a member of the Board of Reviewing Editors to oversee the peer-review process. The Reviewing editor usually reviews the article him or herself, calling on one or two additional reviewers as needed.

  • Revision. Rounds of revision are carried out. Further rounds of revision are largely eliminated, as the Reviewing editor is able to assess most revised submissions without further outside review.

  • Notification. The corresponding author is notified, generally within 4 weeks after the review process is started, of the decision to accept, reject, or require modification. When modification is requested, the corresponding author must either submit the modified version within 20 days or withdraw the manuscript.

  • Notification of Acceptance. When an editor has decided that a manuscript is acceptable for publication on the basis of scientific merit, the author is notified. If all files have been prepared according to the ADCAIJ Instructions and those in the manuscript submission system, the acceptance procedure will be completed successfully. If there are problems that would cause extensive corrections to be made at the copyediting stage or if the files are not acceptable for production, ADCAIJ Journal staff will contact the corresponding author.

  • Publication. Once all the material intended for publication has been determined to be adequate, the editorial staff of the ADCAIJ Journal completes the editing of the manuscript to bring it into conformity with prescribed standards. The articles published over the preceding weeks are collected into a quarterly issue and moved into the ADCAIJ archive.

The time depends of many factors, such as the workload in the journal and the reviewers’ availability. We estimate the mean waiting time between 3-6 months since the manuscript is submitted.

If you think you are waiting considerably longer to receive a decision from the Editor than the average review, you can contact the Editor by our Contact Page.
