Review and Publication Process
A full double-blind refereeing process is used that comprises the following steps.
- Paper is sent to 3 reviewers for review.
- The reviewers' recommendations determine whether a paper will be accepted subject to change/subject to resubmission with significant changes / rejected.
- For papers which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised paper is acceptable.
- If the paper is accepted by the reviewers, author(s) will be notified to pay the author fee.
- Acceptance letter will be provided after the payment has been made.
- Author/Corresponding Author will be notified about the possible date of publication (online).
- A copy of the article will be published by BSSJ online and another electronic copy of the article will be sent to the author/corresponding author.
The review process takes a maximum two to three weeks.
Copyrights for articles published in BSSJ are retained by BSSJ, with first publication rights granted to the journal. The journal/publisher is not responsible for subsequent uses of the work. It is the author's responsibility to bring an infringement action if so desired by the author.
