The manuscript submission and peer review process will be broken down into the following steps:
Step 1. The author submits a manuscript.
Step 2. The Editor-in-Chief assigns an Associate Editor to act as Review Editor for the paper.
Step 3. The Associate Editor assigns Reviewers.
Step 4. The Reviewers review the manuscript and send reports.
Step 5. The Associate Editor makes a decision and the author is contacted.
All SJST papers will go through review in the web-based Journal Submission and Tracking System. The Editor-in-Chief will ensure that all those invited to serve as reviewers gain access to the manuscript. The Editor-in-Chief will email with basic information about the paper including a link to accept the assignment, and a link to decline the assignment to the referees.
