Double-Blind Peer Review Policy
The journal has adopted a double blind peer review policy, where both the referee and the author remain anonymous throughout the process. Please remove all identifying features from the main document itself, ensuring that Authors' identities are not revealed. However, this does not preclude Authors from citing their own previous works, although Authors must cite their works in a manner that does not make explicit their identity. All contributions will be initially assessed by the Editor-in-Chief for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of the articles. The Editor-in-Chief's decision is final.
Open Access Policy
The journal will permit the author to use the article elsewhere after publication, including posting the final post-acceptance manuscript version on the author’s personal web pages or in an institutional repository maintained by the institution to which the author is affiliated, in other works or for the purposes of the author’s teaching and research, provided acknowledgment is given to the Journal as the original source of the publication.
KODISA applies the Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial 4.0 International (CC BY-NC 4.0) to works we publish (read the human-readable summary or the full license legal code).
This license was developed to facilitate open access – namely, free immediate access to, and unrestricted reuse of, original works of all types. Under this license, authors agree to make articles legally available for reuse, without permission or fees, for virtually any purpose. Anyone may copy, distribute or reuse these articles, as long as the author and original source are properly cited.
After publication of an article, the copyright of the article transfers and belongs to the Author(s).
Self-Citation Restriction Policy:
The self-citation refers to when an author refers to the previous work written by him/her alone or in co-authorship and cites it. Self-cites are used to compare current results of the research with earlier findings when continuing to study the same subject. It seems that the only reasonable solution for the issues of self-plagiarism, research integrity, and originality is to limit the number of self-citations. Self-Citation Restriction Policy regulates that the self-citation level should not exceed 10% for an author, 20% for co-authors together, and 15% for JSAS. If the reference checker (software) finds that this rule has been broken, then the manuscript will be automatically rejected by the Desk Editor without further review.
Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion
The Editorial Board respects and promotes diversity, equity, and inclusion by accepting submissions only on the basis of research and scholarly merit and integrity without considering race, ethnicity, nationality, citizenship, gender, religion, or financial means.
Research Involving Human Participants or Animal Subjects
Any research that involves animal or human participants requires the author to ensure that the manuscript contains a statement that all procedures were performed in compliance with relevant laws and institutional guidelines and that the appropriate institutional committee(s) has approved them. Authors should include a statement in the manuscript that informed consent was obtained for experimentation with human subjects. The privacy rights of human subjects must always be observed.
