Journal Policy

  • The journal is published and distributed under the terms and conditions of the Creative Commons Attribution license (CC BY-NC-ND) (http://creativecommons.org/licenses/by-nc-nd/4.0/).
  • We welcome research with unpublished novel ideas and papers that are not in the hand of another publisher.
  • Submissions should not be more than 10.000 words, including all material for publication in the article's print version.
  • The manuscripts should be written according to the APA style 7.
  • Excellent papers are submitted with the following features:

      - Have a rate of zero plagiarism.
      - Do not include libelous/defamatory materials.
      - Written in a formal academic tone that adhere to ethical and academic principles.
      - Data/corpus is made available to the editor at any time during the review and publication process if
questions arise concerning the accuracy of the submissions.

  • Authors should maintain that their submissions are academic and humanity unbiased.
  • Submissions are rejected in case any has been verified to be, in whole or in substantial part, plagiarized, fabricated or contains falsified data, previously published, undeclared interest conflict, and do not conform with academic norms.
  • JESAF does not publish papers that have been retracted from other journals unless the submitter(s) have logical and convincing reasons.
  • Once they are submitted, only manuscripts of sufficient quality that meet the aims and scope of JESAF undergo a blind peer review immediately.
  • The papers that deviate from the journal policy or do not meet the publishing standards endure a thorough revision and refinements. The JESAF team, through ARAFA Services, work closely with authors to improve their manuscripts before the peer review process. 
  • Articles that pass the peer review in the first round take at least a month to be published in the journal, and articles that require multiple revisions may take up to six months.
  • Our reviewers are an essential part of the JESAF team. They provide an insightful analysis of the manuscripts and help the editorial team ensure the journal's quality. Their reviews are foundational to every editorial decision regarding the submissions. 
  • Reviewers' input helps the authors bring their manuscripts to the required publication quality. 
  • There is no stigmatism for weak articles. We not only evaluate papers but also share expertise and help researchers grow constantly and bring submissions into their purest form and content.
  •  No author names can be added after submission. If the exclusion of an author's name or changes in the order of authors is requested, a written request signed by all the authors must be submitted to the journal.
  • Only the corresponding author takes responsibility for communication with the journal during the manuscript submission process.
  • After publication,  it is not possible to change mistakes by the author(s). However, if errors were made by the publisher at the production stage, the original version would remain unchanged, and corrections would be corrected in an erratum.
  • JESAF is a free-fee journal. We do not charge any submission or processing fees.
