About the Journal

The AJFAND is a peer-reviewed journal. The journal employs a double-blind peer review process. Every article submitted is first subjected to editorial review. If it is consistent with the editorial policy and conforms to these basic guidelines, it is sent to three knowledgeable and experienced reviewers. A paper is sent to reviewers only when it is in acceptable shape. To avoid unnecessary delays, the author is encouraged to visit the website and to consult the immediate past issue for the format.
If at least two reviewers agree that the paper should be published in AJFAND, it is accepted and either sent immediately for copy-editing or returned to the authors for consideration of the suggestions therein from the reviewers and/or the Editor-in-Chief. If the reviewers do not agree with each other, the paper is either sent for further reviewing or the editor makes a decision. In this case, the author (s) is given a chance to respond to the reviewers’ comments.
Authors are under no obligation to effect changes suggested by the reviewers as long as they can justify their position.
Open Access Policy
Published material in the AJFAND is covered by copyright. Authors transfer all rights to the journal upon publication. The Editor-in-Chief should grant permission for use/reprint of any published material in AJFAND.
AJFAND is open access and published under the Creative Commons Attribution-Non Commercial-No Derivatives 4.0 International license (see Copyright Statement on the AJFAND website).
AJFAND is published quarterly.
In order to maintain a secretariat and the costs associated with production (online hosting and communication), AJFAND charges article processing fees, but only once an article has been accepted for publication having passed the review process. This is so that editorial decisions are not influenced by ability (or inability) to pay. The fee is $500 per article. AJFAND extends rebates in certain circumstances at the discretion of the Editor-in-Chief.
