Firstly, all manuscripts will be checked by Docol©c​, a plagiarism finding tool. The received papers with plagiarism rate of more than 30% will be rejected. Manuscripts that are judged to be of insufficient quality or unlikely to be competitive enough for publication will be returned to the authors at the initial stage. The remaining manuscripts go through a single-blind review process by external reviewers selected by section editor of JAAS, who are research workers specializing in the relevant field of study. One unfavourable review means that the paper will not be published and possible decisions are: accept as is, minor revision, major revision, or reject. The corresponding authors should submit back their revisions within 14 days in the case of minor revision, or 30 days in the case of major revision. Manuscripts with significant results are typically published at the highest priority. The editor who received the final revisions from the corresponding authors shall not be hold responsible for any mistakes shown in the final publication.

There is an instant policy towards plagiarism (including self-plagiarism) in our journals. Manuscripts are screened for plagiarism by ​Docol©c, before or during publication, and if found they will be rejected at any stage of processing. If we discovered accidental duplicates of published article(s) that are determined to violate our journal publishing ethics guidelines (such as multiple submission, bogus claims of authorship, plagiarism, fraudulent use of data or the like), the article will be “Withdrawn” from SCIENCELINE database. Withdrawn means that the article content (HTML and PDF) is removed and replaced with a HTML page and PDF simply stating that the article has been withdrawn according to the Scienceline Policy on Published Article Withdrawal.
