Guidelines for Authors: Please follow this template (DOCX) when writing your papers.

Peer review process
Journal of Sustainable Technologies and Materials (JST&M) applies double-blind peer-review. Reviewer selection for each submitted article is decided by section editors, and reviewers who are experts in the area of the particular paper. Every submitted paper is read by section editor, at least, for an initial review. If the paper reaches minimum quality criteria, follows the scope and aims of the journal and fulfills editorial policies, it is sent to two reviewers for evaluation. The reviewers evaluate the paper according to the Review Guidelines set by editorial board members and return it to the section editors who inform the author of the reviewers’ anonymous comments. After the double-blind peer review of a manuscript, the corresponding author receive an email in which s/he is informed of the status of the manuscript. The possible decisions include acceptance, acceptance with major or minor revisions, or rejection. Anonymity is strictly maintained.

They also declare that data, findings and materials taken from other sources are properly documented and cited, that their work does not violate privacy rights and intellectual property rights, and that the data is true and not manipulated.
