Submission Preparation Checklist
As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
Please make sure that authors understand and follow these terms before proceeding with the next step in article submission.
The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor). Articles published in conferences will need to be altered prior to submission with at least 30% differences to the original paper, and pass our similarity check.
Authors are bound to our Plagiarism Policy, thus careful considerations should be done prior to submitting the article. In any circumstances that JOSI found article has or is being published elsewhere which is identical to the one published in JOSI, we will retract the article following COPE's guidelines on retracting articles and notify the author.
The submission file must be in Microsoft Word file format, following the author guidelines. Please make sure that you use Mendeley to help in referencing. A guide to using Mendeley as a reference manager is provided.
Failure to follow the guidelines will cost you time and perhaps rejection of your manuscripts.
- Where available, URLs or DOIs for the references must be provided, and use the most up-to-date primary references. It means that JOSI prefers international journal articles, and conference proceedings as the main references.
Authors are discouraged from withdrawing submitted manuscripts after it is in the publication process (review, copyedit, layout, etc.,). During the time, JOSI had spent valuable resources besides time spent in the process. Should under any circumstances that the author(s) still request for a withdrawal, author(s) have to send an email to JOSI's editor using the same email address used in correspondence.
