If you have already submitted a paper to the ISJ you should have received an acknowledgement and a reference number. If you have not received such an acknowledgement, please contact the ISJ Office.
We undertake pre-refereeing scope and quality checks before sending a paper out to reviewers. So if we feel that your paper is out of scope or more relevant to another journal you should hear within two weeks. Once your paper has been sent to reviewers our target for turnaround of reviews is three months, although the average is slightly longer.
If you submitted your paper via Manuscript Central then you are able to check your paper progress and status via this system. Please login at http://mc.manuscriptcentral.com/isj and use the password you received when you submitted (if you have forgotten your password the system will mail you a new one). For other queries please contact the ISJ Office.
