A. Manuscript Submission

Submit your manuscript through the submission system https://eajse.tiu.edu.iq/submit/. Then the corresponding/submitter author will receive an automatic email including your paper details and a specific manuscript number within 24 hours. The manuscript must be submitted in MS-WORD or LaTeX file format. Before submitting your manuscript, authors are advised to follow the Author Guidelines. Manuscripts not conforming to these guidelines will be returned to the author(s).

B. Paper Selection and Publishing Process

Submission Acknowledgement: When you submit a manuscript, the editor or editorial assistant sends a confirmation e-mail to the submitter author within one to two working days and a manuscript number will be mailed to the corresponding author. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant.

Basic Review: The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the journal’s focus and scope. Next, a check for the similarity rate is done using Cross-check, powered by authenticating. Any manuscripts out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, are rejected. Manuscripts out of the journal’s scope are rejected. Articles published fully or partly in other publications/websites are not reviewed or accepted.

Peer Review: We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least three experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take four to 6 weeks.

The decision is Made: The decision to accept an article is based on the reports written by the reviewers as well as the average score in the referee evaluation form filled by reviewers. The reviewers grade a submitted manuscript on a scale of 1 to 5. To be accepted for publication, the manuscript must obtain an average score of not less than 2.5. If differences of opinion occur between reviewers, the editor or editorial assistant will weigh all comments and arrive at a balanced decision based on all comments, or a second round of peer review may be initiated.

Notification of the Result of Review: The result of the reviewers will be sent to the corresponding author. Based on a minor or major revision, the author will be given a limited time to send a feedback report according to the reviewer’s comments and some comments of the editorial board. Then the editorial board will work on it to make the final decision.

Submission is Accepted: If the submission is accepted, the authors revise the paper according to the editorial board’s notifications. If English proofreading is required, journal management may ask to send the paper to the proofreading service of the journal.
