Editorial Review Policy and Procedure
After receiving a manuscript, the Editorial Staff conducts initial pre-refereeing checks to ensure the paper is correctly formatted according to CJPAS, original, within the scope of the journal in question, in the style of a scientific paper and written in English. Any submitted manuscript that does not follow above stated criteria may be rejected. Manuscripts that do not meet the CJPAS Instructions to Authors guidelines are returned to authors for corrections.
We have very strict policy for plagiarism and all papers are checked by iThenticate or Turnitin before sending papers to reviewers. We have rejected a large number of papers based on plagiarism. Therefore, we never published any article that was previously published somewhere else based on plagiarism checking and reviewers report.
Once the Editor has decided to consider the manuscript for publication, the corresponding author of a submitted manuscript will receive a formal acknowledgement with manuscript ID and Consent to publish and Copyright Transfer Agreement.
The CJPAS uses double-blind review process. Manuscripts are reviewed by experts in the research area. A manuscript is sent to two independent referees who are asked to report on the scientific quality, novelty, scientific rigour, significance to the field and presentation. The acceptance criteria for all papers are the quality and originality of the research and its significance to research areas.
When authors make revisions to their paper in response to the referees’ comments they are asked to submit a list of changes and any replies for transmission to the referees. Correspondence and notifications regarding manuscripts will be through e-mail. All reviewer comments and author revisions are handled electronically. Copy editing queries and page proofs (or E-galleys) are also provided via e-mail.
Final acceptance of a manuscript is contingent upon compliance with CJPAS requirements. Manuscripts other than Special Invited Papers are generally published in the order of receipt, within subject areas, of the final, accepted version or of the corrected proof.
Appeals and complaints
Author (s) who wish to appeal a rejection or make a complaint should, in the first instance, directly contact the Editor who will provide details of the journal's complaints procedure.
