No submission, processing, page, colored figures, or publication charges are received from authors. All articles are freely available as early online and on the day of publication on the journal’s website. JOSAM articles are Open Access (OA) and fully compliant with funder OA mandates; they are free to read without a subscription and copyright remains with the authors.
The language accuracy assessment of manuscripts is provided by American Manuscript Editors (AME) (https://americanmanuscripteditors.com/). The assessment process is free of charge. The language editing service for the manuscripts can be arranged by JOSAM or third-party language editing companies. JOSAM presents the academic language editing service which is provided by AME.
Fast-Track Review Process
Rapid journal publication is important for authors who need urgent publication of articles for many reasons such as graduation and promotions deadlines. JOSAM guarantees that such urgent publication will not compromise quality. It should be clear to all authors that there is absolutely no difference in the acceptance/rejection rate when authors have opted for the Fast-Track Process, and there are no preferences that will be given for the Fast-Track Process.
