Peer Review Process

All manuscripts submitted to the Journal of Student Science and Technology are subjected to a two-level peer review process.

Initially academic papers are considered by the International Student Editorial Board (ISEB). Its editors analyze submissions for plagiarism and collect multiple opinions on the quality of research ideas and work from across the board. ISEB forms a shortlist of the papers recommended for publication. For every selected article the ISEB appoints its member to work with an author or authors to prepare an introduction of the author(s) and their research as well as translation of the abstract into French/English matching the language of submission.

Papers selected by the ISEB go for PhD reviews. According to our journal editorial policy PhD reviews are published along with original research paper. The Journal openly publishes reviews along with scientific papers. We believe that this way of publishing science serves more than just the purpose of displaying scientific ideas and thoughts; the Journal also functions as an educative resource.

Authors will be informed (by e-mail) of any recommendations made as a result of peer review. It is the responsibility of the author to review and respond to recommendations, addressing each of the reviewer's comments separately. In point form, the author must quote the reviewer's comment and follow with his/her response.

The Editorial Board reserves the right to edit manuscripts to ensure they confirm to the requirements of the journal. No major changes will be made without consulting the author. 

 

Publication Frequency

Regular issues are published twice per year in May and November. A special Coop issue is published in September.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
