Suitability for publication in J.KSIAM is judged by the editorial policy of the Editorial Board.
A submitted paper is allocated to one of the Managing Editors, who has full directorship for the reviewing process of the submission. The managing editor selects one of Associate Editors, and the selected Associate Editor chooses two qualified referees to review the paper. The Associate Editor him/herself may act as a referee.
The managing Editor handles all correspondence with the author(s). The anonymity of the reviewers is always preserved. The reviewers should examine the paper and return it with their reports to the Associate Editor within 4 weeks from the date of the intial review request. The reviewers recommend acceptance, rejection or revision through a report. Based on the reports, the Associate Editor makes a recommendation to the managing Editor whether the paper should be accepted, rejected or needs to be returned to the author(s) for revision.
Papers needing revision will be returned to the author(s), and the author(s) must submit a revised manuscript to the online system within one month from the date of the revision request; otherwise the author(s) will be notified that the paper has been withdrawn. The revision is assigned for review to the managing Editor who handled its initial submission. The managing Editor sends the revised manuscript to the original Associate Editor to check if the manuscript is revised as suggested by the reviewers in the previous review. The Associate Editor makes a recommendation for the revision to the managing Editor within 3 weeks from the date of the Associate Editor assignment.
Final decision by a managing Editor is usually made within 3 months from the time of initial submission. The length of time from initial submission to final decision may vary, depending on the time spent for review and revision. A letter announcing a publication date is sent to author(s) after a manuscript has been accepted by the managing Editor.
