Information For Authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process. Submissions are welcomed through our online system. We cannot accept submissions by email.

Prior to being considered for suitability for peer review, all articles submitted will be assessed for adherence to our submission guidelines, including adherence to the Publication Manual of the American Psychological Association, 7th ed., and scanned for matching text. Authors are encouraged to have articles professionally copyedited for APA, as well as scanned with text-matching software, such as “Turnitin” or “ithenticate”, prior to submission.

If a submission's topic is considered to fit the mandate of the journal, the Editor will send the manuscript for a set of outside peer reviews. The reviews are then studied by the Editor who will decide to either accept the manuscript, reject the manuscript, or request revisions, which may or may not go out for a second set of peer reviews. The time this takes depends on many things—most importantly the schedules of the editor and the reviewers.

Please submit your manuscript electronically as a Microsoft Word document through the submission feature of this website. Submissions can be made at any time (there are no deadlines). 

AJBE does not charge a fee for publication of an author's article. However, a submitted article may go through a rigorous peer reviewer process. Submitting to AJBE is an investment of time, not money.

All submitted papers will undergo a double-blind peer-review process and be assessed on the basis of originality, significance, technical soundness, and clarity of expression. Hence in initial submission there is no need to include Authors name in the paper. Although final submission after been accepted need complete mailing address indicating designation, e-mail, of the author(s).

Accepted authors will be notified and a final camera-ready version in Docx format will be required by the deadline mentioned in the acceptance email. Authors should mention all these in our “Journal Management System” during initial submission and in camera-ready version. Please Carefully fillup the Metadata form.

The review committee may recommend the rejection of final papers that do not take account of reviewers’ requirements and expectations in an acceptable manner.

Please supply 5 keywords that describe the main subjects discussed in your manuscript (in the online submission, and below the abstract in the manuscript). If the article goes to review, the keywords are used to help find reviewers. If the article is published, the keywords are used on this site to make it easier for readers to find your article in a search.
