Submission Policy


Submissions must be original. Contributions may not have been published previously nor be pending publication in another journal. Submissions may not be under review by any other forum. We will, however, publish work that has previously been reported in conferences or workshops. If the work has appeared in an "archival" conference we would expect the submission to extend the conference paper in a substantive way. Authors must notify the editor about previous or pending conference publication at the time of submission to JSAT.

You may submit your manuscript to any member of the editorial board. The editor in chief must receive copies of your correspondence. Please send an email explicitly stating title, author(s), corresponding author and having an electronic version of your manuscript attached. At this stage, special style file requirements are not imposed.

After inspection of the file(s) we will send out an acknowledgement of receipt as soon as possible.

It is the policy of JSAT to combine thorough reviewing with fast publication. Normally, you will receive referee reports within a period of three months, together with a decision of the board. After acceptance you are requested to prepare your manuscript using the JSAT style file and to fill in the copyright form, which has to be printed, signed and faxed.
