                  - Manuscripts must not have been previously published nor under consideration for publishing by other journals or by any conferences.
                  - Manuscripts submitted to JMS must be reviewed by the editorial teams and the experts in the related fields. The reviewers do not know any information about the author and vice versa. A double-blind peer review process is efficiently performed as follows:
                      1. When the manuscript has been submitted to the editorial team, the author will be informed.
                      2. The manuscript will be firstly screened by the editorial team to check for the format as required by the journal. Manuscripts that do not conform to this requirement will be returned to the author for revision before the peer review process is undertaken.
                     3. Then the manuscript will be checked by the editorial team for the scope and the content whether they are conformed to the objectives of the journal or not.
                     4. If the manuscript is initially passed by the editorial team, it will be submitted to two experts of the related field to evaluate the quality of the manuscript using a double-blind reviewing process. However, if the manuscript has not passed the initial check mentioned in No. 3, the author will be informed.
                     5. When the reviewers have completed the review, the editorial team will be further consider the comments from the reviewers and make a decision about the publication.
                     6. The result of the evaluation will be announced to the author. If the manuscript is approved, the author has to adjust the manuscript as suggested by the reviewers (if any) within the period that is specified by the editorial team, as follows:
                         6.1 The first period of manuscript adjustment is not more than 21 days starting from the day that the editorial team has informed the author or the length of time which is specified by the editorial team. If the manuscript adjustment is not done satisfactorily in the first instance, it will be resent to the author for a second revision or the editorial team can reject the manuscript and the manuscript will be considered as not approved to be published in the journal.
                         6.2 The second period of the manuscript adjustment is not more than 14 days starting from the day that the editor has informed the author or the length of time which is specified by the editorial team. If the adjustment is not done satisfactorily, a third revision may be performed or the editorial team can reject the manuscript and the manuscript will be considered as not approved to be published in the journal.
                         6.3 The third period of the manuscript adjustment is not more than 7 days starting from the day that the editor has informed the author or the length of time which is specified by the editorial team. If the adjustment is not done satisfactorily, a fourth revision may be performed or the editorial team can reject the manuscript and the manuscript will be considered as not approved to be published in the journal.
                        6.4 The final period of the manuscript adjustment is not more than 5 days starting from the day that the editor has informed the author or the length of time which is specified by the editorial team. If the adjustment is not done satisfactorily, a fifth revision may be performed or the editorial team can reject the manuscript and the manuscript will be considered as not approved to be published in the journal.
                   7. For each adjustment, the editorial team will check the appropriateness of the title of the manuscript, the abstract, the content, the references, and other details as suggested by the reviewers and the manuscript format as requested by the editorial team. If the author cannot meet the deadline as requested by the editorial team, it will be considered that the author has withdrawn their manuscript from the publication in JMS.
                   8. When the editorial team has edited the revised manuscript and made a final decision that this manuscript is going to be published, the letter of acceptance will be issued to the author.

                  Importantly, the editorial team has the right to adjust the correctness of data and the format as required in order to be consistent. The editorial team has the right to reject or accept the manuscript if necessary.

                  All published manuscripts are considered as JMS’s copyright. However, JMS allows them to be reduplicated, copied, and disseminated academically.
