Proposals to launch new special issue should be submitted by the Guest Editors and should include the following:
Once a proposal has been approved in principle by Editorial Office, it is the responsibility of the Guest Editor(s) to deliver the soft copy of entire issue to IJAIS within the agreed time-scale. Guest Editors must organize a double-blind reviewing process for all papers submitted for inclusion in the special issue, so as to:
The editors of IJAIS require copies of all correspondence between reviewers and Guest Editors at the time that the completed draft of the special issue is submitted to IJAIS. Guest Editors should keep the IJAIS Editorial Office informed by e-mail of progress in preparing the special issue and in particular alert them in advance if agreed deadlines are likely to slip.
Once the final selection of papers has been made and final CRC (Camera-Ready Copy) versions (as per IJAIS format guidelines) of all the accepted papers are received, the Guest Editors should submit the papers to the IJAIS Editorial Office.
The IJAIS Editorial Office will then check the quality of the issue with the help of IJAIS Quality Audit teams before forwarding it for publication. The Editorial Office reserve the right to request a third review of papers and, if necessary, request modifications to an issue before approving it for publication. However, the procedures set out above are designed to minimize the need for such measures.
