Peer Review Process
Every paper published in the AJICT is peer reviewed by at least 3 reviewers selected from an internationally-based expert pool. Where papers submitted follow the format of the Journal and are written well, the turn around time is around eight weeks. Authors are able to follow each step of the review process and editors of sub-sections moderate and supervise the review processes.
This Journal is published quarterly. Accepted articles are assembled as an Issue of the Journal and released at the same time.
Open Access Policy
This journal provides open access to all of it content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. Such access is associated with increased readership and increased citation of an author's work. For more information on this approach, see the Public Knowledge Project, which has designed this system to improve the scholarly and public quality of research, and which freely distributes the journal system as well as other software to support the open access publishing of scholarly resources.
