The published paper was independently reviewed before by two scientific reviewers and at least one editor. The AIJST publishes original research papers, review papers, technical report and short communication.

Original Research Papers should report the results of original research. The material should not have been previously published elsewhere.

Review Articles can cover either narrow disciplinary subjects or broad issues requiring interdisciplinary discussion. It should provide the objective critical evaluation of a defined subject. Reviews should not consist solely of a summary of published data. Evaluation of the quality of existing data, the status of knowledge, and the research required to advance knowledge of the subject are essential.

Short Communications and Technical Papers are used to communicate results which represent a major breakthrough or startling new discovery and which should, therefore, be published quickly. They should not be used for preliminary results. Papers must contain sufficient data to establish that the research has achieved reliable and significant results. The Technical Papers should present new methods and procedures for either research methodology or culture-related techniques.
