We publish original research articles, reviews and short scientific communications on applied sciences and engineering topics, to inform current research, policy and practice in all areas of common interest to social scientists, engineers, and policy makers.
Journal of Applied Science and Engineering A (JASE-A) covers all applied and fundamental aspects of mathematics, chemistry, physics, and engineering. It has three sections: "Mathematics and Computational science", "Chemical technology and Engineering" and "Physics and Environmental science".
In order to be fair to all submissions, Editorial Board cannot consider in queries about the appropriateness of a manuscript that is submitted by e-mail outside the formal submission system.
The Editorial Board consists of experts in the natural sciences, engineering and an Editor-in-Chief.
All research manuscripts received by the JASE-A undergo a full peer review process. The Editor-in-Chief of JASE-A is responsible for deciding which of the submitted articles will be published in the journal.
This journal uses a double-blinded review process, which means that both the identity of the reviewer and the author are hidden from the reviewers throughout the review process and vice versa. All submitted manuscripts undergo intensive peer review in consultation with members of the journal’s editorial board and independent external reviewers (usually 2-3 reviewers).
Papers must be in English and must not have been published elsewhere. Authors must agree not to submit the same material to another journal for publication. It is in the author's interest to ensure accurate and consistent presentation to avoid delays in publication.
Authors who wish to use figures, tables, or text passages that have been published elsewhere must obtain permission from the copyright holder(s) for both print and online formats and provide proof that such permission has been granted when submitting their articles. Material submitted without such proof will be assumed to originate with the authors.
Reviewers are asked to evaluate a manuscript according to the following criteria:
All manuscripts will be reviewed within a reasonable period of time and the decision will be made by the Editor-in-Chief of the journal based on all peer reviewers’ comments.
Types of papers
The journal publishes several types of manuscripts:
All papers – except editorials, letters to the Editor – are peer-reviewed by at least two experts.
This is the most common form of journal manuscript, publishing full reports of research data. The research article format is suitable for many different fields and different types of studies. It includes abstract, introduction, methods, results and discussion sections.
Short scientific communications
These papers publish short reports of data from research articles that editors believe will be of interest to many researchers and are likely to stimulate further research in the field. Because they are relatively short the format is suitable for researchers whose results are time sensitive (example e.g., in highly competitive or rapidly-changing disciplines). This format often has strict length limitation, so some experimental details may not be published until the authors write a full Research article manuscript.
Review articles provide a comprehensive summary of research on a particular topic, as well as an outlook on the state and development of the field. They are often written by leading scholars in a particular field at the invitation of a journal’s editor. Reviews are widely read (for example, by researchers seeking a comprehensive introduction to a field) and frequently cited. Reviews typically cite about 100 primary research articles.
Submission of an article implies that the work described has not yet been published (except in the form of an abstract, a published paper or an academic paper). The submitting author must ensure that all eligible co-authors have been included in the author list and that they have all read and approved the submitted version of the manuscript. The manuscript may not be published in English or any other language, including electronically, in the same form without the written consent of the copyright holder.
Please follow the “Submit manuscript” (http://icase.mn/online-paper-submission) hyperlink and upload manuscript files following the on–screen instructions.
Please ensure that you provide all relevant editable source files with each submission and revision. Failing to submit a complete set of editable source files will result in your article not being considered for review. Please always submit your manuscript text in common word processing formats such as .docx or LaTeX (with all figures in eps or tiff format).
For authors who are (temporarily) not affiliated, we collect only their place of residence and country but not their e-mail address unless specifically requested.
The abstract should be written in Times New Roman 9pt, fully justified and should not include references, figures, or tables. In the abstract, you should briefly state the purpose of the research, the main results and the main conclusions. Please prepare an abstract of approximately 150 to 250 words.
Provide a maximum of 8 keywords immediately following the summary. Use American spelling and avoid general and plural terms as well as multiple words (e.g., avoid 'and', 'of'). These keywords will be used for indexing. The keywords are written in Times New Roman 9pt. Please do not coincide keywords with article title.
Please download the template file from the homepage of JASE-A (URL: http://icase.mn/online-paper-submission).
Please use the decimal system for headings with no more than three levels. Divide your article into clearly defined and numbered sections. Subsections should be numbered 1.1 (then 1.1.1, 1.1.2, ...), 1.2, etc. (the abstract is not included in the section numbering). Use this numbering also for internal cross-references: Do not simply refer to 'the text'. Each subsection can be given a brief heading. Each heading should be on a separate line. First level headings are in sentence case and bold, 10 points, and aligned to the left.
The text should be at least 12pt spaced and page numbered to facilitate the review process and should be organized as follows:
All manuscripts must be clearly written in English (American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture thereof).
Non-English speaking authors who do not have a good command of scientific English are requested to contact someone whose native language is English or engage a professional language editing service before submission.
Important NOTE: Manuscripts may be rejected by the Editorial Board without review if they exhibit poor English or are unsuitable for the journal because they do not achieve an acceptable level of quality, are outside the scientific aims and scope of the journal or contain evidence of scientific fraud.
Each author must individually declare all sources of funding received for the research submitted to the journal. This information includes the name of granting agencies, grant numbers, and a description of each funder’s role.
Acknowledgments for individuals and others.
References must be numbered as they appear in the manuscript (, [2,3], [4-8] etc.) and should appear in numerical order in the reference section. The list of references should include only papers that are cited in the text and that have been published or accepted for publication. Personal communications and unpublished work should be mentioned only in the text. References should be compiled at the end of the article in the order of citation in the text, not in alphabetical order. References must contain sufficient information to allow a reader to find the referenced publication. With electronic linking of references to the publications themselves now possible, consistent styling of references is especially important. The required format for references is as follows. At least 8 references should be cited.

Ethical Responsibilities of Authors
This journal is committed to upholding the integrity of the scientific record. As a member of the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) the journal will follow the COPE guidelines on how to deal with potential acts of misconduct.
Authors should refrain from misrepresenting research results which could damage confidence in the journal, the professionalism of scientific authorship, and ultimately the entire scientific endeavor. Maintaining the integrity of the research and its presentation is supported by following the rules of good scientific practice, which include:
The manuscript should not be submitted to more than one journal for simultaneous consideration. The submitted work should be original and should not have been published in any other form or language (partially or in full), unless the new work concerns an expansion of previous work. (Please provide transparency on the re-use of material to avoid the concerns about text-recycling (‘self-plagiarism’).
A single study should not be split into multiple parts to increase the number of submissions, and submitted to various journals or to one journal over time (i.e. ‘salami-slicing/publishing’).
Concurrent or secondary publication is sometimes justifiable, provided certain conditions are met. Examples include: translations or a manuscript that is intended for a different group of readers.
Results should be presented clearly, honestly, and without fabrication, falsification or inappropriate data manipulation (including image based manipulation). Authors should adhere to discipline-specific rules for acquiring, selecting and processing data.
No data, text, or theories by others are presented as if they were the author’s own (‘plagiarism’). Proper acknowledgements to other works must be given (this includes material that is closely copied (near verbatim), summarized and/or paraphrased), quotation marks (to indicate words taken from another source) are used for verbatim copying of material, and permissions secured for material that is copyrighted.
Copyright on any research publications in the JASE-A is retained by the author(s). The authors grant the JASE-A a license to publish the publications and identify itself as the original publisher.
