Peer Review Process

The Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Technology is a formally peer-reviewed journal. All publications in the journal undergo a double-blind peer review process where reviewers don't know the identity of the author and vice versa.

  1. Editor-in-Chief first reviews the submitted manuscript, called the initial review. It will be evaluated whether the submitted manuscript is suitable for the Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Technology based on scope, similarity score by using Crosscheck-iThenticate, readability of the articles, and adhering to the submitted paper template.
  2. Furthermorethe manuscript will be sent to Associate Editors who will invite at least 2 anonymous reviewers. Once the Associate Editors submit their recommendation and the reviews, the Editor-in-Chief will review the recommendation and make a final decision.
  3. The accepted manuscript then continued the copyediting and layout editing processes to prepare the camera-ready paper.

Review Decisions

Editor-in-Chief is permitted to take the following actions in the stage of initial review:

  1. Return the paper without review because the paper is outside the scope of the journal.
  2. Return the paper without review because the lack of readability of the article.
  3. Return the paper without review because the technical content is insufficient.
  4. Return the paper without review because the paper grossly exceeds the length limitations.

Editor-in-Chief reviews the comments made by reviewers and is allowed to make following decisions:

  1. Accept
  2. Revise
  3. Reject

After submitting revisions to the journal, authors are required to submit a rebuttal to the reviewer's comments. Authors should fully address all reviewer comments; if an author does not agree with the change requested, the author should explain the reason in the rebuttal. If the Editor-in-Chief feels that reviewer comments have been ignored, the Editor-in-Chief may reject the revised article.

The final decision on whether a submission is accepted for publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief, since the Editor-in-Chief is responsible for the content of the entire journal, including all special issues.



Plagiarism Detection

Reuse of words must be kept to a minimum, credited, or quoted in the text, and all sources must be cited when they are used.

The Journal of Artificial Intelligence and Technology uses the Similarity Check service provided by Crossref and powered by iThenticate to provide editors with a user-friendly tool to help detect plagiarism. Results returned by the software may be used as a criterion for the analysis of the manuscript by the editorial board and may eventually result in a rejection due to plagiarism and/or duplicate publication.

The CrossRef Similarity Check uses iThenticate originality detection software to identify text similarities which may indicate plagiarism. It does this by comparing manuscripts with both a web repository and the CrossRef database.
