Peer Review

The journal operates a triple blind review policy involving three separate reviewers who are required to submit their review from 2 weeks to 3 months. The reviewers’ reports are usually considered by the editorial board before arriving at official decision on the manuscripts and communicating same to the authors. Acceptable manuscripts requiring major/minor revisions are sent to author with a deadline for revision and submission for further editorial assessments or second review by the same reviewers who would endorse the compliance to stated revision. The final editorial decision is then taken and the manuscripts sent to press for production when the manuscript has met the requirements.

Publication Ethics

WOJAST is dedicated to upholding the utmost level of integrity in the content it publishes. There are no exceptions to the rigorous standards employed by the editors in handling matters related to research integrity and publishing ethics. Any form of plagiarism is categorically unacceptable, and the severity of plagiarized content dictates the measures the editorial board will undertake. Consequences may range from imposing a ban on the author from submitting to WOJAST for a specified period to potential legal repercussions.

Academic dishonesty is not to be tolerated and will be pursued to its fullest extent. These infractions may also give rise to, or become entangled with, legal ramifications. The editors and other members of the journal team are obligated to deliberate on such matters and take appropriate actions, which may include seeking legal counsel. Instances that may necessitate legal advice encompass potential defamation, breach of contract, privacy violations, or copyright infringement. WOJAST unequivocally disapproves of these actions and considers them as serious matters deserving of utmost attention.
