FOR AUTHORS




Editorial Workflow

The JATI peer-review process is single blinded, i.e., 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. The following is the editorial workflow that every manuscript submitted to the JATI journal undergoes during the course of the peer-review process.

1. A manuscript is submitted to the journal by the corresponding author.

2. The Editor-in-Chief reads the manuscript and determines if it is appropriate and worthy of review. The Editor-in-Chief, also invites, one of the Associate Editors based on the subject of the manuscript, to inspect the paper.

3. The Editor-in-Chief assigns the manuscript to an Associate Editor, who oversees the review process.

4. The Associate Editor assigns the manuscript to a number (at least 2) of external reviewers, provided that no conflict of interests exists between the reviewers and the manuscript’s authors.

5. The manuscript is reviewed in accordance with the journal publication standards and requirements.

6. Based on the reviews report, the Associate Editor makes a recommendation to the Editor-in-Chief.

7. After careful consideration of the reviewers’ report and Associate Editor’s recommendation, one of the following decisions will be taken by the Editor-in-Chief:

Publish unchanged: The manuscript is accepted for publication

Consider after Minor/Major Changes: The corresponding author(s) are notified to submit, within a specified time period, a revised copy of the manuscript with the required changes suggested by the reviewers and/or the Associate Editor. The author(s) should also submit 'authors response' detailing all changes made to the manuscript. In the event of minor changes, the Associate Editor will review the revised manuscript; and in the event of major changes, the revised manuscript may be returned to the original reviewers. The revised manuscript may be rejected, accepted as re-submitted or accepted after further changes.

Reject: In most cases, methodological and scientific concerns are the main origins of rejection. Causes of rejection will be sent to the authors to provide more chance for them for publication in other journals.

8. Only the Editor-in-Chief can approve a manuscript for publication, whereas Associate Editors recommend manuscripts for acceptance to the Editor-in-Chief.


Preparing a Manuscript

Title and Authorship Information
The following information should be included
Paper title
Full author names
Full institutional mailing addresses
Email addresses


Abstract
The manuscript should contain an abstract. The abstract should be self-contained and citation-free and should not exceed 250 words.

Introduction
This section should be succinct, with no subheadings.

Materials and Methods
This part should contain sufficient detail so that all procedures can be repeated. It can be divided into subsections if several methods are described.

This should clearly explain the main conclusions of the work highlighting its importance and relevance.

Acknowledgments
All acknowledgments (if any) should be included at the very end of the paper before the references and may include supporting grants, presentations, and so forth.

References
Authors are responsible for ensuring that the information in each reference is complete and accurate. All references must be numbered consecutively and citations of references in text should be identified using numbers in square brackets (e.g., “as discussed by Veeraiyah [9]”; “as discussed in [9,10] or [9-12]”). All references should be cited within the text. The IEEE referencing convention is a requirement for publication in JATI. A full and clear guide can be found at https://www.ieee.org/documents/ieeecitationref.pdf.

Figures
All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order. Figures should be in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons.

Tables
Tables should be cited consecutively in the text. Every table must have a descriptive title and if numerical measurements are given, the units should be included in the column heading.

Units of Measurement
Units of measurement should be presented simply and concisely using System International (SI) units.


Manuscript Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript through the email jati.editor@apu.edu.my. Only Word (.doc, .docx) files can be submitted. There is no page limit.

PUBLICATION ETHICS




Ethics for Authors

1. Authors should present an objective discussion of the significance of research work as well as sufficient details and references.

2. Authors should maintain accurate records of data associated with their submitted manuscript, and supply or provide access to these data, on reasonable request. Authors guarantee that all data used in the article are real and authentic. Where appropriate and where allowed by employer, funding body and others who might have an interest, authors should deposit data in a suitable repository or storage location, for sharing and further use by others.

3. Fraudulent or knowingly inaccurate statements constitute unethical behaviour and are unacceptable.

4. The authors should ensure that their work is entirely original, and if the work and/or words of others have been used, this fact has been appropriately acknowledged. Plagiarism in all its forms constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. Authors should not submit articles describing essentially the same research to more than one journal.

5. Authors should acknowledge the financial support and help/guidance of others if appropriate.

6. All co-authors should significantly contribute to the research. The corresponding author should ensure that there is a full consensus of all co-authors in approving the final version of the paper and its submission for publication.

7. Authors are obliged to participate in peer review process.

8. Authors should notify promptly the Editors if a significant error in their publication is identified, and cooperate with the Editors to publish an erratum, addendum, corrigendum notice, or to retract the paper, where it is deemed necessary.



Ethics for Editors

1. Editors have complete responsibility and authority to accept/reject a manuscript.

2. Editors should evaluate manuscripts exclusively on the basis of their academic merit. Editors act in a balanced, objective and fair way while carrying out their expected duties, without discrimination on grounds of gender, sexual orientation, religious or political beliefs, ethnic or geographical origin of the authors.

3. Editors must not use unpublished information in the editor's own research without the express written consent of the author.

4. Editors preserve anonymity of reviewers.

5. When errors are found, editors promote publication of correction or retraction.

6. Editors should take reasonable responsive measures when ethical complaints have been presented concerning a submitted manuscript or published article.



Ethics for Reviewers

1. Any manuscripts received for review must be treated as confidential documents. Privileged information or ideas obtained through peer review must be kept confidential and not used for personal advantage.

2. Reports should be conducted objectively, and observations should be formulated clearly with supporting arguments, so that authors can use them for improving the paper. Any relevant published work which is not yet cited should be pointed out.

3. Any selected reviewer who feels unqualified to review the research reported in a manuscript or knows that its prompt review will be impossible should notify the editor and excuse himself from the review process.

4. Reviewers should not consider manuscripts in which they have conflicts of interest resulting from competitive, collaborative, or other relationships or connections with any of the authors, companies, or institutions connected to the papers.
