journal paper



When you submit your article to the Journal of Science and Security (JSS), you’re confirming that it hasn’t been previously published elsewhere, except possibly in the form of an academic thesis or dissertation, and that it’s not under consideration for publication elsewhere. Additionally, by submitting your article, you assert that there are no conflicts of interest involved.

All research articles undergo blind review by at least two anonymous reviewers chosen by the Editor. JSS employs a rapid review system to minimize the time between submission and publication. The Editor reserves the right to make necessary changes to submitted articles during the editing stage.

While authors retain the copyrights to their published works, JSS is granted first publication rights. Authors also bear complete liability in the event of any plagiarism issues.

As an Open Access journal, the Journal of Science and Security (JSS, KENYA) provides free access to all its content without any charges to readers. The journal operates without receiving any grants or aid. To cover operational expenses such as proofreading and layout design, JSS levies a nominal article processing fee. This fee, which remains consistent regardless of the number of authors or pages, is only required to be paid after an article has been accepted for publication.
