Process Of Review
Members of a Panel of Readers will be asked to read, evaluate, and provide comments on all manuscripts deemed appropriate for initial review on the basis of review criteria. All peer reviews are proposed to be blind. Once the initial review is completed, the Editor will make a decision to accept or not to accept, or might ask the author to revise and resubmit the manuscript. When a manuscript is deemed acceptable, the Editor then sends the manuscript to the Editor-in-Chief and Consulting Editor, who also provides a blind review and provides comments about the quality and appropriateness of the manuscript for AIJTE. Based on this review, the Editor then makes the final decision to publish or not.
1.Manuscripts must be created with Microsoft Word 2007/2010, double-spaced
between 6-7 pages in length, Times New Roman, 12 pt. font, 1 inch margins, and the names of authors NOT included on the actual manuscript.
