  • Journal of Advances in Technology and Engineering Research (JATER) published by TAF Publishing. JATER is a double-blind peer-reviewed journal dedicated to advancing the field of engineering and technology. In contrast to other journals in engineering and technology, the JATER is unique in a sense that the journal highly encourages interdisciplinary studies. We invite original submissions from all fields of engineering and technology.

  • Information for Contributors

    All submissions should be made using a Word Processing file from which title page (including author name, affiliation, any acknowledgment or author notes) must be removed. After removing the author(s) details, go to the web site here and follow the directions. Each article usually has two part:
    i. Main Manuscript
    ii. Title Page not for Review. The manuscript should include everything
    (i.e. Title, Abstract, Key Words, Introduction, Literature Review, Methods, Results, Findings References, Tables And Graphs) except for the authors, names, affiliation, addresses, acknowledgements, and any other information that may be used to identify the author(s). All acknowledgements of others’ help in research should be included in the ‘Title Page not for Review’ that is featured as part of web- based submission process.

    Criteria for Publication

    To be published in JATER, a manuscript must make strong theoretical and empirical contributions to the field of engineering and technology. Authors interested in publishing with JATER should strive to produce original, interesting, valuable, insightful, and important research. The acceptance of article for publication in JATER highly depends upon the originality, value, importance, and significance of your research. Submissions that do not offer strong theoretical or empirical contribution will not be reviewed.
    Each submitted manuscript would be assigned to action editor for evaluation. The action editor will decide whether to forward the manuscript to the reviewers. Typically, papers should be no longer than 40 double-spaced pages (using one-inch margins, left aligned, and Times New Roman 12- point font) including references, tables, figures, and appendixes.

    Submission Requirements

    Before submitting a manuscript to JATER, the authors must make sure and confirm that
    i- Their manuscript has not already been published elsewhere, is not under review for publication elsewhere and will not be submitted to any other journal during the review period at JATER. Articles presented and published in the proceedings of any academic conferences or workshops will be considered for publication in JATER.
    ii- Their manuscript has not previously been submitted to JATER for review.
    iii- The working papers or prior drafts of submitted manuscript that are posted on a website (e.g., Personal, Departmental, University, Organizational) or a database will be taken down during the review process.

    Peer Review Process and Time

    Journal of Technology and Engineering Research (JATER) operates a strictly anonymous peer- review process in which the reviewers’ names are withheld from the author(s) and, the authors’ name from the reviewer.

    Desk Review: On receiving a manuscript, the editor conducts a preliminary screening to assess the degree to which the manuscript fits the criteria in JATER’s ‘Aims’ and ‘Mission statement. Submissions that fail to satisfy our criteria may be returned to the authors either as a desk reject or desk edit. In case of desk edit, the authors are asked to edit the manuscript and then resubmit.

    Review process: For each manuscript that passes the desk review, the editor assigns an action editor (either him- or herself or an associate editor or a guest editor) and two reviewers. The manuscript’s action editor sends the manuscript for review to two reviewers who are specialists in their fields. After receiving the reviewers’ comments on the manuscript, the action editor makes publication decisions about it. However, these decisions are made in conjunction with recommendations provided by the reviewers. All submission are blind reviewed; manuscripts prepared in a way that compromises blind review may be returned for revision prior to being submitted to the reviewers.

    Review Time: The journal strives to provide developmental and constructive feedback to authors within approximately five weeks. The peer-review process usually takes four weeks depending upon the manuscript size and availability of the editorial members. However, the initial quality of the manuscript can dramatically influence both the efficiency and effectiveness of review process. The better developed a manuscript and the ideas it contains, the easier it will be to review, and provide timely feedback to authors. We therefore encourage authors to ask scholarly colleagues to review their work prior to submission to the JATER. The submission made to the conferences organized by Taf Publications generally do not go through peer-review process because the submission made to Taf Publications conferences already go through a rigorous review process. For manuscripts already presented at Taf Publications conferences, the action editor usually makes a decision for possible acceptance, rejection or revision.


    The in-text Citations, Tables, Figures/Images, References, and Appendixes. Manuscripts that do not commensurate with the formatting guidelines may be returned by the action editor to the authors for revision prior to submission to the full review process.
    All submission are required to be formatted according to the guidelines available here.

    Language Editing-Author Services

    For authors who are non-native English speakers writing in English as a second language, Taf Publications offers language editing, or ‘polishing’ of academic papers, including manuscripts, journal articles, abstracts, and dissertations. Your manuscript will be checked for correct grammar, spelling, style, sentence structure, and readability. Improvement in the language of a manuscript enhances its chances of being accepted for publication. The charges for language editing are USD 5 per page. Alternatively the authors may want to use other professional proofreading services provided by other service providers such as EDITAGE
