Peer Review Process

The JSSAL is a refereed journal and has a double-blind review. Any manuscript submitted for consideration in publication in the JSSAL is reviewed by at least two international reviewers with expertise in the relevant subject area. 

The submission is first reviewed by the editorial team. This initial review is completed in two weeks. If the submission passes the initial review, then the blind review takes about two months.

The template is not compulsory for articles submitted for review. The template can be used for accepted papers.
