Author Guidelines

SAMPLE TEMPLATE (For Preparation of Manuscript)

Submission

Manuscripts should be submitted by one of the authors of the manuscript through the email and one hard copy (soft copy in CD of the same) with an undertaking to the associate editor. Regardless of the source of the word-processing tool, only electronic PDF (.pdf) or Word (.doc, .docx, .rtf) files can be submitted through email. There is no page limit. Only email submissions are accepted to facilitate rapid publication and minimize administrative costs. Submissions by anyone other than one of the authors will not be accepted. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. The author may contact info@isst.org.in for support.

Terms of Submission

Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture, review, or thesis) and are not currently under consideration by another journal published by ISST or any other publisher. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article's publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. It is also the authors' responsibility to ensure that the articles emanating from a particular institution are submitted with the approval of the necessary institution. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the principal author before publication unless otherwise indicated. It is a condition of submission of a paper that the authors permit editing of the paper for readability. All enquiries concerning the publication of accepted papers should be addressed to info@isst.org.in.

Peer Review

All manuscripts are subject to peer review and are expected to meet standards of academic excellence. Submissions will be considered by an associate editor and—if not rejected right away—by peer-reviewers, whose identities will remain anonymous to the authors.

Article Processing charges

ISST is a non-profit making society; nominal printing charges allow Society to make the published material available to all interested.

Paper Acceptance:

The final decision on publication is made by the Editor-in-Chief upon recommendation of the Editorial Board Members. If the manuscript is accepted for publication, it must not be published in any periodicals elsewhere without the permission of the editorial board
