To: IJE\'S Authors; A Progress report
From: Editor in Chief of International Journal of Engineering (IJE)
To: IJE’S Authors
Dear IJE’s Respectful Readers, Reviewers and Authors
IJE is successfully published since 1988; started with 2-4 issues per year. From 2007, IJE published 6 issues in 2 Transactions A. Basics & B. Applications per year. In 2008, the number of issues has increased to 8. Since 2012 IJE has 3 Transactions A. Basics, B. Applications and C. Aspects with 12 issues per year. Recently, many authors are faced with their rejected papers; that had caused the authors to be unhappy as numbers of academic staff have complained about IJE’s high rejection rate. Therefore, I am pleased to share with you about the progress of IJE’s published issues in past 8 years with necessary statistics about acceptance and rejection of submitted papers (Please see the following illustrated data in column graph).
The total number of online submitted manuscript since 2006: 2435 articles
Total accepted papers are 753 while total number of published papers: 690
The accumulated rate of rejection through electronic submission: 69%
Recent rate of rejection is: 72%
In addition the number of submitted manuscript is rapidly growing. In past 9 months; we received more than 1000 papers. Since, we cannot publish more than 12 issues with 216 articles in one year. Therefore, editorial boards have the best opportunity to select the best papers for publication among thousands of submitted papers. Based on recent policy, IJE normal paper size is 8 journal pages. IJE never publish any papers with more than 10 journal pages. If the editors and board of reviewers find even any part of submitted papers having self plagiarisms; we shall automatically reject that paper. Any author who has submitted a paper with solid evidence of plagiarisms, IJE would put all authors in black list; then they are not able to submit any papers to IJE. We shall eliminate papers with too many equations without explanations; our policy is not to publish papers with set up of problem solutions. The originality and novelty of submitted papers will be evaluated. Finally, I wish to thank and acknowledge all IJE’s board of reviewers and board of editors for their strong support and hard work to give IJE a definite and distinguished brand with high impact factors.
