Author Guidelines

Suggestions for Authors

Please try to complete all requested documents and writing rules for delivering an article. This helps you both by speeding up the evaluation process of the article and provides convenience for publication. Every evaluation process (secretariat, editor, field editor) of the article please do not hesitate to contact. You can contact with the corresponding person by his/her JEST e-mail address.

If you do not get any feedback from the Editor about your article within six weeks, you can contact immediately.

We kindly suggest to the experienced authors to read all the directives carefully and applying them as it is stated. You have right of defense to reply the comments coming from Editor or Referee and the comments are groundless/unnecessary.

Debates between author and editor (through the opinions of Referee) can be sustained at most two years and is ended based on the debates. Authors as long as following the scientific methods and providing scientific proofs are free to put forward every kind of idea.

Even in the smallest indication of plagiarism, JEST indefinitely stops all the connection with the author and rejects any article that has the name of the author(s) even in the Secretariat stage.
