Information for Reviewers
IEEE/CAA Journal of Automatica Sinica (JAS) depends heavily on our reviewers, and we are greatly indebted for maintaining the quality and timeliness of our journal. Thank you for your contribution in assessing manuscripts.
The manuscript submission and peer review process is broken down into the following steps:
1) The Author submits a manuscript.
2) The Editor-in-Chief assigns Deputy-Editor-in-Chief, and the Deputy-Editor-in-Chief assigns an Associate Editor to handle the review of the manuscript.
3) The AE selects reviewers to review the manuscript.
4) The reviewers review the manuscript.
5) The AE makes a recommendation, which is then reviewed by Deputy-in-Chief and Editor-in-Chief.
6) The Author receives the final decision.
