MANUSCRIPT PREPARATION

Authors’ information:

The authors' full names, complete affiliations (name of the laboratory, section, division, department, institution), along with city and country (The journal uses single-blind peer review, which means that author names are disclosed to reviewers but reviewer names are withheld from the authors), should be included. 

No other requirement is needed at this stage.

 

File format

Papers must be submitted in PDF format, or LaTeX saved as PDF (No other format is accepted).

 

Manuscript formatting:

Authors should submit their manuscripts as a single file, with all the key sections (Abstract; Key Words; main text: Introduction, Materials and Methods, Results and Conclusions; Acknowledgements, Funding Information and References,) included. 

No particular format is required at this stage to make the submission process easier for authors.

 

Language

American or British English is accepted as long as it is used consistently throughout the manuscript and conforms to accepted standards of English style and usage.

Papers in poor English will be rejected, hence it is highly recommended that authors have their manuscripts proofread prior to submission.

 

Figures and tables

All figures and tables must be numbered and have descriptive captions.

All figures and tables must be mentioned in the text, numbered consequently and cited in number order. Figures should include graphical material; tables, tabular one. All illustrations, graphs, and diagrams should be considered as figures, with corresponding numbers and captures.

All figures and tables must be placed within the text, not as appendices, near where cited.

 

Reference formatting:

At this stage, no particular format is required.

What it is indeed important is that references mentioned in the Reference List are cited in the text, and vice versa.

 

SUBMISSION

Papers must be submitted online through the Open Journal System (OJS); authors must previously register.

 

PEER REVIEW PROCESS

All papers submitted to JART are peer-reviewed following a single-blind review process. All contributions are initially assessed by the Editor-in-Chief for suitability for the journal; then, they are assigned to an associate editor who oversees the reviewing process. Papers are sent to a minimum of two experts to assess their quality. The Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of papers. The Editor-in-Chief’s decision is final.
