Abstracting and Indexing
Open Access Policy
Authors must submit manuscript through the system for being considered published in JSEN. For being published, manuscript must go through a peer review process (blind-reviewing process). We only publish articles that highly qualified researchers with expertise have reviewed and approved in a field appropriate (at least two reviewers per article). Detailed information of peer reviewed process is in here.
The acceptance or rejection of manuscript submitted by author(s) will be decided by the editorial boards, which is based on the review results from the reviewer(s). There are no communications between authors and reviewers during the reviewing process. Also, there are no communications between authors and editors regarding the rejection decision.
Authors whose papers are accepted, revised, rejected will be informed with the results from the reviewers.
The steps for the reviewing process are in the following figure.
In short, the steps are:
The steps point number 1 to 5 is considered as 1 round of peer-reviewing process (see grey area in the figure). And, our reviewing process at least goes through 2 round of reviewing process.
The journal editor or editorial board considers the feedback provided by the peer reviewers and arrives at a decision. The following are the most common decisions:
(i) accept without any changes (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper in its original form
(ii) accept with minor revisions (acceptance): the journal will publish the paper and asks the author to make small corrections
(iii) accept after major revisions (conditional acceptance ): the journal will publish the paper provided the authors make the changes suggested by the reviewers and/or editors
(iv)revise and resubmit (conditional rejection): the journal is willing to reconsider the paper in another round of decision making after the authors make major changes
reject the paper (outright rejection): the journal will not publish the paper or reconsider it even if the authors make major revisions
