Journal of Applied and Natural Science considers publishing special issues in collaboration to cover niche subject areas with well-defined scope and theme that aligns with the journal's scope and focus.
The special issue has one or more guest editors to oversee the special issue. The guest editors have expertise and experience in the theme of the special issue and are responsible for soliciting and reviewing submissions, making editorial decisions, and ensuring the quality of the content.
The special issue follows the same rigorous review process as regular articles published in the journal. The guest editors conduct an initial screening of submissions, followed by a peer-review process to ensure the scientific validity and quality of the articles. The peer review is typically single-blind for special issues. The decision of the Editor-In-Chief is final as the journal reserves the right to not publish any paper if it's found unsuitable.
To ensure timely publication, clear timelines are established for the publication of the special issue, including deadlines for submission, review, and final acceptance. The timelines are also communicated to the guest editors and authors to ensure transparency and accountability.
All articles published under special issues are also completely open-access, and the author(s) retain the copyright as per the journal's open-access and copyright policy.
