 Reviewing Process

International Journal of Automotive Science and Technology uses Single-Blind Reviewing process. This means that the reviewer identities are concealed from the authors throughout the review process. Reviewers will not be influenced by the authors because reviewer anonymity allows for impartial decisions.  



The paper should be prepared in two columns. The main text of the manuscript must be written in Times New Roman, font 10, 12-point line spacing.
