Academic Platform-Journal of Engineering and Science is a peer-reviewed international journal with a focus on all areas of theoterical/applied science and engineering. The journal publishes original research and review articles by aiming at sharing technological innovations and newly updated academic research findings. It is believed, in this sense, that the journal will play an important role to build a world-wide scientific environment by bringing the researchers, academicians, government, and industry stakeholders all over the world.
The language of the Journal is English.
There are two key principles that Academic Platform-Journal of Engineering and Science was founded on: Firstly, to publish the most exciting researches with respect to the subjects of engineering and science. Secondly, to provide a rapid turn-around time possible for reviewing and publishing, and to disseminate the articles freely for research, teaching and reference purposes.
All published articles will be assigned DOI provided by CrossRef. Academic Platform-Journal of Engineering and Science will keep up to date with latest advances in the field and papers published in the journal will reach the readers directly on the web site providing the international scientific community with immediate and permanent access to individual papers.
The publication ethics and malpractice statement is mainly based on the Code of Conduct and Best-Practice Guidelines for Journal Editors (Committee on Publication Ethics, 2011).
The editorial board of APJES decided to focus the scope of the journal to the topics related to smart systems and artificial intelligence. The manuscripts from all engineering and science disciplines which contain artificial intelligent techniques or smart system approach could be submitted to be evaluated for possible publication in APJES.
However, the papers under evaluation by blind peer reviewers will continue to proceed evaluation process. On the other hand, the papers submitted but not taken into the evaluation process yet, will be asked to be withdrawn by the corresponding author or the editor will do that instead.
The journal accepts only the original scientific researches. It is essential that the information created in scientific study needs to be new, suggest new method or give a new dimension to an existing information.
Articles submitted for publication are evaluated by at least two referees in case the editor finds potential scientific merit, and final acceptance and rejection decision are taken by editorial board. The authors are not informed about the name of referees who evaluate the papers. In similar way, the referees are not allowed to see the names of authors. The papers which do not satisfy the scientific level of the journal can be refused with unexplained reason.
Any information about a submitted manuscript cannot be disclosed by the editor and any other editorial staff to anyone other than the corresponding author, reviewers, potential reviewers, other editorial advisers, and the publisher. No confidential information or ideas obtained through peer review can be used for personal advantage.
