Journal Policy

Papers are accepted on the understanding that they have not been and will not be published elsewhere. Authors are encouraged to check their papers for plagiarism before submission. It is because any paper with more than 30% plagiarism (based on Turnitin) will be immediately rejected without an editorial/peer-review process. JoA applies a double-blind review process. Each paper is assessed by the editor and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to at least two independent referees for peer review. Based on their recommendations, the editor then decides whether the paper should be accepted in its current form, revised or rejected. Papers on acceptance become the copyright of the journal. However, the authors retain publishing rights with respect to Creative Commons Attribution 4.0 International License.

Digital Archive

All published work in JoA will be archived Universiti Teknologi MARA Institutional Repository.
