Focus and Scope

Introduction:

The "ADBU journal of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (AJEEE)" is an International Peer-reviewed Open-Access Online journal in English language exploring innovative research findings in Electrical and Electronics Engineering & Technology and its allied sciences, published bi-annually (February-March and September-October) by the Department of Electrical and Electronics Engineering, Assam Don Bosco University, Guwahati, India. 

Aim and Scope:

ADBU Journal of Electrical and Electronics Engineering (AJEEE) publishes scientific articles which contribute new novel experimentation and theoretical work in all areas of Electrical and Electronics Engineering and its applications. This Journal will bring together researchers from Academic Institutes, Research organization and Industries, thereby bridging the gap between research and industrial development. Thus, AJEEE contributes to the growth of electrical and electronics engineering science and technology and discusses the recent developments in different areas of this domain of study.  This is an online open access Journal allowing full access to read and download the articles freely.

AJEEE aims at exploring the solutions for all research gaps in electrical and electronics engineering & technology and is trying to enlighten the research area with innovation findings.

Peer Review Process

What is Peer Review?
Peer review is a process of self-regulation by a profession or a process of evaluation involving qualified individuals within the relevant field. Peer review methods are employed to maintain standards, improve performance and provide credibility. In academia, peer review is often used to determine an academic paper's suitability for publication. In case of blind peer review, the identity of the authors would not be revealed to reviewer/referee till the paper is published in the journal.
 
Why Peer Review?
It is difficult for authors and researchers, whether individually or in a team, to spot every mistake or flaw in a complicated piece of work. This is not necessarily a reflection on those concerned, but because with a new and perhaps eclectic subject, an opportunity for improvement may be more obvious to someone with special expertise or who simply looks at it with a fresh eye through a different angle. By reviewing the research of others, experts can identify the possible weaknesses/flaw, thus quality would be improved.
 
AJEEE is devoted to publishing original and high-quality research / technical papers only.

A manuscript, after its submission, is given to the appropriate editor who chooses referee/referees for the paper.  However, if in the judgment of the editors a paper is unsuitable for the Journal, it will be rejected without external review (although, under such a scenario, authors will have the right to appeal). The journal follows a strict policy for peer review, appointing reviewers (excluding members from the Editorial and Advisory Boards of the journal) who are experts in their respective fields. Generally, two reviewers are assigned to each manuscript. In case of any dispute, the opinion of the third reviewer is sought.


Review Guidelines

If the manuscript is eligible, the Editor will send it to two individual Reviewers along with a “Reviewer’s Evaluation Sheet” - in MS Word 2007 format (https://goo.gl/uGz6fe).

 

Reviewers are asked to evaluate the following:

  • The originality of the work
  • The correctness of the methodology used
  • Adherence to ethical guidelines as per the ADBU journal policies
  • Whether the results have been presented well and support the conclusions
  • Complete and correct referencing
  • Does the article qualify for publication? (Reviewers advise the editor, who is responsible for the final decision to accept or reject the article.)

Reviewers do not correct the submissions. They simply add comments in the sections which need corrections.

 

Every Manuscript submitted to AJEEE is subjected rigorous process as follows.

Process Flow:



Step 1: [Author -—› Editor]

Author has to submit his / her manuscript to the Editor through Online Submission.


Step 2: [Editor]
  1. Editor(s) assigns a unique Paper ID to the submitted manuscript. 
  2. Next, Editor(s) determines the quality and originality of the submitted manuscript content by doing Plagiarism check (two times by two independent people). 
  3. Editor(s) gives his / her first opinion on the particular manuscript, whether it is eligible / rejected. 
  • If manuscript is rejected, the Editor regret message to the Author(s). In this case, Author(s) can submit a new article. 
  • If manuscript is eligible, the Editor will send it to two individual Reviewers along with a “Reviewer’s Evaluation Sheet” - in MS Word 2007 format (https://goo.gl/uGz6fe).

Publisher publishes the accepted manuscript in the current issue.


Step 8: [Editor -—› Corresponding Author]

Editor gives the publication information to all the corresponding Authors via E-Mail.
