 Authors: Only papers that have not been published elsewhere are considered.Authors must follow the “The Journal Engineering Science (JES) … Guidelines for Authors” when submitting papers. Only individual persons but not company or organization can be author(s). As JES consists mainly of personal members, authors are required to submit their papers in their personal names. Once the paper is submitted, the name of authors cannot be changed, added or deleted.

 Deadline: No deadline for paper submission is specified.

 Papers Submission: The manuscript of the paper (3 copies) should be submitted to the Chief/Executive Editor of the Journal JES. Online submission in the E-mail addresses to the Chief/Executive Editor is also highly encouraged and accepted.

 Purpose of Reviewing: The submitted paper is peer-reviewed to judge its quality for the journal JES. The Editorial Bored may ask authors to make revisions of the paper to satisfy the requirement. It should be noted, however, that the author is inherently responsible for the quality of the published paper.

Reviewer: The Editorial Board assigns three reviewers expertise in the relevant areas for each paper based on the contents.

Judgment by Reviewer: Based on the evaluation and comparison with past published papers in elsewhere, the reviewer judges whether the paper is to be accepted or rejected. The reviewer should try to be accepted a paper that can contribute to the future academic/ technological development, even if it has some drawbacks. When the reviewer recommends rejection, reasons should be given according to the items mentioned in the prescribed format of Paper Review Report. The results of review are to be described and communicated to the author(s) in detail regardless of its acceptance or rejection.

Decision by Editorial Board: The Editorial Board judges if paper is to be accepted based on the reports by three reviewers. In principle, if two or more of the three reviewers recommend the acceptance, the paper will be accepted. If any reviewer requires a revision on the paper, the Editorial Board may request author to revise the paper. Editorial Board will review the revised paper to judge whether the author has given satisfactory revision and response to the comments by reviewer. The reviewer may be requested to re-review the paper for this purpose. The Editorial Board has responsibility in its final judgment, and notifies the decision promptly to the concerned.
