Peer Review Process
The submission are peer reviewed by using standard review procedure.
Single Blind Review Process: The reviewers will have access to submitted files and provide feedback within the assigned time.
Editors will email selected Reviewers the title and abstract of the submission, as well as an invitation to log into the journal web site to complete the review. Reviewers enter the journal web site to agree to do the review, to download submissions, submit their comments, and select a recommendation.
Average time from submission to first decision is 4-6 weeks.
Currently, the journal publishes four issues per year with continuous processing and publication of submissions (by As We Go model).
Journal publishes four issues per year volume.
Continuous publishing: The articles are published on 'As we go' process, means as and when article is ready for publication after due processing (reviewing+copyediting+layout+galley proofing), the article would be published with assigning to ongoing/current issue.
Open Access Policy
This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge. The article processing fee details have been mentioned on the APC page.
This journal utilizes the LOCKSS system to create a distributed archiving system among participating libraries and permits those libraries to create permanent archives of the journal for purposes of preservation and restoration. More...
The Journal of Integrated Science and Technology is a multidisciplinary venue for discoveries in materials science, pharmaceutical science, nanoscience, sciences, environmental science, and engineering & technology. The JIST:
- would get high Impact by wide circulation and indexing in different scientific content databases.
- provides open access to all of its research articles (Gold open access),
- would deposit published research articles in different databases.
- is an ideal home for authors seeking the broadest audience for their most important work.
The journal is led by Editor and an Editorial Board of peer scientists whose depth and experience ensure fair and competent peer review.
Sending your work to the JIST
The journal considers research submissions in several categories. The JIST receives submissions only through its website; submissions by mail or e-mail will be returned.
Do you have a question about a manuscript you've already submitted?
- When a manuscript is received and confirmed by the JIST, an acknowledgment is sent via e-mail to the corresponding author. For any communication with us, please reference the tracking number assigned by the JIST noted in the acknowledgment.
- In order to avoid confusion regarding correspondence, inquiries, and decisions, the JIST will typically communicate only with those who are designated as corresponding authors during the submission process.
Copyright/Content Access: The Journal publishes articles with 'Gold Open Access' with content copyright retained by authors and reproduction copyright assigned to publisher ScienceIN Publishing.
Unique IDs for Articles: The journal is currently using URN number for the published articles (however, this is currently meant for internal use by journal). The journal will process the assigning of DOI (Digital Object Indentifier) to articles (including previously published ones) once the journal is indexed in Web of Science (Clarivate) as it help in providing the correct citations records for the published articles.
Manuscript submitted and processed for reviewing can't be withdrawn. If authors donot respond to emails for the reviewed and accepted manuscript, then the article will be published by the journal in as such format with a retraction note 'withdrawn by authors' by no response.
Publication Ethics and Publication Malpractice Statement

The manuscript processing involves following stages
In addition, general instructions and help pages on for Authors, Reviewers and Editors should be referred for brief general conduct
Each authors who submit (and willing to publish in the journal) the manuscript, should read the ethical guidelines for submission and publication of work in scientific and medical journal (listed on above links). Particularly, manuscript must be plagiarism free. Any Animal study reported should have been performed with approval of respective institutional ethical committee and statement thereof should be included in manuscript.
Author Guidelines for manuscript preparation and submission details are provided under Author Guidelines (See submission link).
The authors should refer the publishing ethics or 'Code of conduct' and 'conflict on interest' guidelines on the link: https://pubs.thesciencein.org/authors-code-of-conduct/
The journal uses ‘Single Blind Review’ of the manuscripts, the reviewers must maintain the confidentiality during reviewing and post review of manuscript. The manuscript work should be evaluated in respective field of expertise and detailed feedback and recommendation should be provided to editors. The general code of conduct defined in links below should be referred and followed while reviewing and providing feedback.
The ethics guidelines/code of conduct details for reviewers can be referred at https://pubs.thesciencein.org/reviewers-code-of-conduct/
All the editors should handle the assigned manuscripts by observing fair processing of submissions, editorial independence, confidentiality, and rational decision making within stipulated time framework with the feedback obtained from independent reviewer/experts in the field of work covered in respective manuscript. A detailed code of conduct mentioned in COPE reference documents and ScienceIn page https://pubs.thesciencein.org/editors-code-of-conduct/ should be adhered to.
The Publisher ‘ScienceIn’ handles the unethical publishing cases. In cases of alleged or proven scientific misconduct, fraudulent publication or plagiarism, the publisher, in close collaboration with the editors, will take all appropriate measures to clarify the situation and to amend the article in question. This includes the prompt publication of an erratum, clarification or, in the most severe case, the retraction of the affected work. The publisher, together with the editors, shall take reasonable steps to identify and prevent the publication of papers where research misconduct has occurred, and under no circumstances encourage such misconduct or knowingly allow such misconduct to take place.
Retraction policy: The journal contents are peer reviewed and evaluated for quality before publication. Still, in case any issue is brought to the notice of the journal about any falsified claims about the results reported, any case of redundant (salami) publication, or any other mischievous behaviour in published articles, then Publisher/Editor reserve the right to re-evaluate the published article contents (in coordination with editorial board/reviewers) and on confirmation of any such behaviour, the article will be retracted from the journal.
