About the Journal

Publication Ethics

  • JIIAE follows ethical standards to maintain public trust in our publications and ensure academic integrity in a responsible manner for the public benefit and research development.

  • Authorship:   Individuals who have made substantive intellectual contributions to the research are qualified to make a submission as authors. The research must be original and should not be under consideration for review or publication elsewhere. Substantive contributions include designing a scientific investigation, acquisition, analysis, and interpretation of the data, participating in drafting, reviewing or revising the manuscript for intellectual content and being accountable for the integrity of the research work as a whole. All contributors who do not meet the criteria for authorship should be listed in an acknowledgment section. Those individuals who provided purely technical help, writing assistance, general support, financial and material support should be acknowledged. Once the submitted papers pass through the double-blind review, they will be sent for edition and layout creation. Authors cannot withdraw their papers at this stage.

  • Corresponding Author:   The corresponding author is the one individual who takes primary responsibility for communication with the journal during the manuscript submission, peer review, and publication process. He/She needs to ensure that all the journal's administrative requirements for submission and publication are properly completed. The corresponding author should be available to respond to editorial queries in a timely way and respond to critiques of the published work in case any questions should arise after publication.

  • Co-author:   They should contribute to the research work, take responsibility for the content of all appropriate portions of the manuscript, acknowledge that they have reviewed and approved the final manuscript. They are also expected to be responsible for the integrity and accuracy of any part of the applicable research.

  • Conflict Interest:   A Conflict of Interest exists when judgment regarding the research is influenced by financial gain or personal relationships. All authors are required to disclose any financial, personal or other associations that may influence their work potentially. Authors are responsible for disclosing financial support from the industry or other conflicts of interest that might bias the interpretation of results. Editors and reviewers who make a judgment on manuscripts should recuse themselves from editorial decisions if they have conflicts of interest or relationships that pose potential conflicts related to articles under consideration.

  • Plagiarism:   JIIAE is committed to publishing original and unpublished manuscripts to maintain academic integrity. The corresponding author must confirm that all of the other authors have approved the final manuscript. The authors must assure that the manuscript submitted is not being considered for review or publication in whole or in part elsewhere. Manuscripts found to have been published elsewhere or under review will be suspended.

  • Citation Manipulation:   Citation manipulation refers to the activity of publishing articles primarily for the purpose to increase an author's number of citations. Authors should abide by the publication ethics guidelines and JIIAE is strongly opposed to this malicious practice.

Peer Review Process

The practice of peer review is to ensure that only good research is published. It is an objective process at the heart of good scholarly publishing and is carried out by all reputable scholarly/academic journals. Our referees play a vital role in maintaining the high standards of the Journal of the Institute of Applications Engineers and all manuscripts are peer-reviewed following the procedure outlined below.

  • Initial manuscript evaluation
    • Editors make an initial evaluation of all manuscripts submitted to the journal. It is rare, but possible, for a manuscript to be accepted at this stage. Manuscripts rejected at this stage typically are insufficiently original, have serious scientific flaws, or are outside the aims and scope of the journal.
    • Those that meet the minimum criteria are passed on to at least 2 experts for review. Authors of manuscripts rejected at this stage will be informed as soon as possible, usually within 4 weeks of receipt.
  • Type of peer review
    • The Journal of the Institute of Applications Engineers employs double-blind reviewing, where both the referee and author remain anonymous throughout the process.
  • How the referee is selected
    • Whenever possible, referees are matched to the paper according to their expertise. Our database is constantly being updated.
  • Referee reports
    • Referees are asked to evaluate whether the manuscript:
      • (1) Is original methodologically sound;
      • (2) Follows appropriate ethical guidelines;
      • (3) Has results which are clearly presented and support the conclusions;
      • (4) Has correct references and the previous relevant work is well written.
    • Language correction is not part of the peer-review process, but referees may suggest corrections to the manuscript.
  • How long does the review process take?
    • The time required for the review process is dependent on the response of the referees. However, the typical time for the Journal of the Institute of Applications Engineers is approximately 8-12 weeks. Should the referees' reports contradict one another or a report be unnecessarily delayed, a further expert opinion might be sought. The Editor's decision will be sent to the author with recommendations and verbatim comments made by the referees and, when appropriate, further recommendations by the Editors. Revised manuscripts might be sent out for a new round of reviews, often to at least one of the initial reviewers. Further rounds of revision may then be requested. Special issues may have different peer review procedures involving, for example, Guest Editors or ad hoc review committees. Authors contributing to these projects may receive full details of the peer review process on request
      from the editorial office (email: office@ia-engineers.org).
  • Final report
    • A final decision to accept or reject the manuscript will be sent to the author along with any recommendations made by the referees and may include verbatim comments by the referees.
    • The Editor's decision is final. Referees advise the Editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article. The editors make one of the following four decisions about the submitted paper: Accept, Accept with Minor Revision, Resubmit and Reject. The notification will be sent to the authors directly.
  • Benefits of refereeing for the Journal of the Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers
    • Referees who are not part of the Editorial Board of the Journal of the Institute of Industrial Applications Engineers are acknowledged in an annual statement in the journal.
