Full length manuscripts may be published in the International Journal of Arts and Sciences (ISSN 1944-6934) or any of the refereed journals electronically available through IJAS' publishing consortium. The review process for the journals is slower and more demanding in its standards. Although both the proceedings and journals are refereed, research that meets the refereed standards for the conference and the proceedings may not meet the refereed standards for the journals. The selection of a journal, if any, for a particular manuscript is entirely at the discretion of the editorial board members following the reviewers' suggestions.

All the journals and proceedings are in electronic format since this makes it easier to disseminate the articles (click here for a sample article) to international scholars.

Authors will receive complimentary access to the online issue in which their work appears. One's research may not simultaneously appear in both our proceedings and journals.

Authors who prefer a hard copy may download an entire issue on their own computer and publish and order a hard copy of it from or any other online publishing service for their own personal use.

IJAS's articles are indexed/accessed in (i) WorldCat, (ii) Ulrich's serials directory, (iii) Proquest, (iv) EBSCO, (v) Genamics, and (vi) Google Scholar - click here.

There is no page limit on articles. We don't impose a financial penalty on lengthy manuscripts. We don't charge any money to publish in our refereed proceedings or journals. We never did and never will. We also do not accept manuscripts that have been edited by third parties for a fee. 

You may republish any articles you publish with us. You don't need our permission to do so. Third parties, however, cannot republish articles that have been published with us unless they have the authors' written consent.
