Special Issues

Special Issues

 1. Open Special Issues

At the moment we have no open Special Issue

2. Special Issue Guidelines: Every proposal for special issue must be sent to us and should include the following

The journal for which the Special Issue is intended
* A suggested title for the Special Issue 
* Proposed Aims and Scope
* A list of Guest Editors who will join the Lead Guest Editor in managing the Special Issue, including their names, emails, affiliations, and a short biography (one paragraph) of each of the Guest Editors
* A proposed timeline and schedule which includes:
* Deadline for submission (6 months from the initial Call-for-Papers)
* First round of review (3 months after submission deadline)
* Tentative publication date (3 months after the first round of review)

All proposals are subject to approval by the journal following a discussion of the proposed Special Issue among the journal’s Editorial Board. If approved, a Call-for-Papers for the Special Issue will be issued and posted online.

Each proposal will be evaluated by three independent experts according to the following Criteria
* Relevance to the Journal
* Scientific - Technical Originality, 
* Scientific content And advances beyond the State-Of-The-Art
* Potential Impact and tnterest for the readers

The Guest Editors cannot act as reviewers for the Special Issue’s manuscripts. This is to ensure a high-quality, fair, and unbiased peer-review process of every manuscript submitted to the journal, since any manuscript must be recommended by one or more (usually two or more) external reviewers and the Guest Editor before acceptance for publication.

The name of the Guest Editor recommending the manuscript for publication is published with the manuscript to indicate and acknowledge their invaluable contribution to the peer-review process and the indispensability of their contributions to the running of the journals.

The peer-review process is single blinded; that is, the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer reviewers are. Every journal published by Hindawi has an acknowledgment page for the researchers who have performed the peer-review process for at least one manuscript in the past year. Without the significant contributions made by these researchers, the publication of the journal would not be possible.

Information for Authors

Download as:  [Word] [Pdf] [LaTeX]
It should be noted that papers must be written in exact IARAS format before they are uploaded to the journal, as this contributes to the best appeareance of the volume. If the final version of a paper is considerably different to the desired format, it will not be published even if it is accepted. Frequent mistakes that should be avoided: a) Single column format is not accepted; Only the abstract & keywords should be in a single column, and possibly some large pictures at the end of the paper as an Appendix b) Very narrow or very wide margins are to be avoided c) The title should not be written entirely in capital letters, as opposed to the authors' names that should d) The authors' names should be written as such: {FIRST NAME} {FAMILY NAME} as opposed to vice versa and their titles cannot be included. For instance, JOHN SMITH instead of Professor Smith, John e) The document should be displayed in A4 pages, not Letter or other size f) No page numbers or other Headers or Footers are allowed g) Paragraphs must have single line spacing

Review Process

Review Process

IARAS sends each paper to 3 independent reviewers, experts in the area of the paper. So, each paper will be evaluated by three independent experts according to the following Criteria
1) Relevance to the Journal
2) Scientific - Technical Originality, Potential Impact and Interest for the audience
3) Scientific/Technical Content and Advances beyond The State-Of-The-Art
4) Quality of the Presentation, clarity of the Content
5) Comments for the authors

The reviewers are going to indicate their familiarity with the paper's subject, evaluate the paper along the aforementioned criteria. Finally, the Editor-in-Chief or a Member of the Editorial Board will decide whether a paper will be accepted or not. 
Our Score System will classify the papers as follows
* Publish as it is
* Consider after Minor Changes
* Consider after Major Changes
* Reject

If the Editor recommends “Publish as it is” the manuscript will undergo a final check by the journal’s editorial office in order to ensure that the manuscript and its review process adhere to the journal’s guidelines and policies. Once this is done, the authors will be notified of the manuscript’s acceptance, and the manuscript will appear in the Articles in Press section of the journal’s website.

If the Editor recommends “Consider after Minor Changes,” the authors are notified to prepare and submit a final copy of their manuscript with the required minor changes suggested by the reviewers. The Editor reviews the revised manuscript after the minor changes have been made by the authors. Once the Editor is satisfied with the final manuscript, the manuscript can be accepted.

If the Editor recommends “Consider after Major Changes,” the recommendation is communicated to the authors. The authors are expected to revise their manuscripts in accordance with the changes recommended by the reviewers and to submit their revised manuscript in a timely manner. Once the revised manuscript is submitted, the Editor can then make an editorial recommendation which can be “Publish Unaltered,” “Consider after Minor Changes,” or “Reject.”

If the Editor recommends rejecting the manuscript, the rejection is immediate. Also, if the majority of the reviewers recommend rejecting the manuscript, the rejection is immediate.

All journals published by IARAS are committed to publishing only original material, i.e., material that has neither been published elsewhere, nor is under review elsewhere. IARAS as a participant of CrossCheck uses the iThenticate software to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Manuscripts that are found to have been plagiarized from a manuscript by other authors, whether published or unpublished, will incur plagiarism sanctions.

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement


IARAS is committed to maintaining high standards through a rigorous peer-review together with strict ethical policies. Any infringements of professional ethical codes, such as plagiarism, fraudulent use of data, bogus claims of authorship, should be taken very seriously by the editors with zero tolerance. IARAS follows the Code of Conduct of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE), and follows the COPE Flowcharts for Resolving Cases of Suspected Misconduct. ΙARAS follows strictly these GUIDELINES ON GOOD PUBLICATION PRACTICE (from COPE):

The submitted manuscript should not have been previously published in any form and must not be currently under consideration for publication elsewhere. Please find further information on Publication Ethics at "Editorial Workflow" (Menu item "Editorial Workflow")


Terms of Collaboration

1). COPYRIGHT: By submitting a paper the author understands that its copyright is transferred to IARAS. IARAS may publish it at their discretion and the author may not resubmit it anywhere else, and that includes other IARAS publications. Based on this copyright transfer of the paper, IARAS is entitled to publish the paper to its journals.

2). After the Review process is completed by the Assoc. Editor and the Reviewers, it is no longer allowed for the authors to withdraw their paper.

3). PEER REVIEW: All submitted papers are subject to strict peer-review process by at least three international reviewers that are experts in the area of the particular paper. The factors that are taken into account in review are relevance, soundness, significance, originality, readability and language. The possible decisions include acceptance, acceptance with revisions, or rejection.

4). If authors are encouraged to revise and resubmit a submission, there is no guarantee that the revised submission will be accepted.

5). Rejected articles will not be re-reviewed.

6). Articles may be rejected without review if they are obviously not suitable for publication.

7). The paper acceptance is constrained by such legal requirements as shall then be in force regarding libel, copyright infringement and plagiarism.

8). The reviewers evaluate manuscripts for their intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

9). The staff must not disclose any information about a submitted manuscript to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher, as appropriate.

10). Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the author is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments.

11). Peer review assists the publisher in making editorial decisions and through the editorial communications with the experts form the scientific board ant the author may also assist the author in improving the paper.

12). Manuscripts received for review are treated as confidential documents and are reviewed by anonymous staff.

13). A reviewer should also call to the publisher's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which they have personal knowledge.

14). Authors of contributions and studies research should present an accurate account of the work performed as well as an objective discussion of its significance.

15). A paper should contain sufficient detail and references to permit others to replicate the work. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behavior and are unacceptable.

16). The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted.

17). Submitting the same manuscript to more than one publication concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable.

18). Authorship should be limited to those who have made a significant contribution to the conception, design, execution, or interpretation of the reported study.

19). All sources of financial support for the project should be disclosed.

20). Authors should make themselves aware of the paper processing charges and registration fees of the publication they submit a paper to by reading the respective sections.

21). The IARAS Open Access Journals do not require from the authors to submit any copyright form. An author can withdraw a paper until 30 days after the paper submission. After these 30 days no withdrawal is allowed. It is the discretion to the Publisher to publish a paper with or without fees..
