The manuscripts will be reviewed for possible publication with the understanding that they are being submitted to only The IIOAB Journal and have not been published, simultaneously submitted or already accepted for publication elsewhere.
The Editors review all submitted manuscripts initially. Manuscripts with insufficient originality, serious scientific and technical flaws or lack of a significant message are rejected. All manuscripts received are duly acknowledged. Manuscripts are sent to two or more expert reviewers without revealing the identity of the contributors to the reviewers except review articles. Each manuscript is also assigned to a member of the editorial team, who based on the comments from the reviewers takes a final decision on the manuscript. The contributors will be informed about the reviewers' comments and acceptance or rejection of manuscript. The average submission to decision time is about 3 weeks.
Although IIOAB runs on voluntary services and contribution, there is no processing fee. Publication fee is not mandatory for non-funded works authored by single author or author who is a student. As IIOABJ is an OPEN ACCESS journal, a minimum publication fee is required for other cases as there is cost involved. However, special discount may be considered in case to case basis. An additional fee will be applicable for formatting of article.
Accepted articles, if required, will be copy edited for language, grammar, punctuation, etc. and author has pay for that. Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author, which has to be returned within 48-72 hrs. Correction received after that period will not be included. Article will be published immediately after acceptance once the Formatting/Editing/Publication fee is received by the editorial office. Articles accepted in IIOABJ can not be withdrawn in any circumstances.
