The review process may take 2-4 months. In some cases due to limitation and contradictions about reviewers the process may take longer.
While the manuscript files are handed over to production for data processing and typesetting, you (being the corresponding author) will stay in touch with us through email coordinated by Editor in Chief. For top quality production author should cooperate with our production team.
Accepted articles must be checked before sending to production. If an author faced with plagiarisms, based JAST's rule we have to black list the author. This means we never review any paper from such authors for a defined period of time, even years. In addition JAST would use PlagScan.com for all submitted paper, if the content is plagiarism free, then it would be assigned editor for the review process.
The author can track the article online. Every stage of progress is shown in JASTweb.
