The journal Polytehnic and Design was established in 2013 with the aim of publishing scientific and professional papers in the areas of Technical Sciences, Humanistic Sciences, Design, as well as multidisciplinary papers in their boundary areas. The Polytehnic and Design welcomes submissions in any of the following four categories: (i) Original Scientific Papers, (ii) Preliminary Notes, (iii) Subject Reviews, (iv) Expanded Conference Papers, and (v) Professional Papers. The submitted paper should not have been previously published elsewhere in the same or similar form and may not simultaneously be submitted to another journal for publication. The author is held entirely responsible for the contents, data reliability and all the statements in the paper.
The author warrants that the article is original, written by the stated author/s, had not been published before and will not be submitted anywhere else for publication prior to acceptance/rejection by the Polytehnic and Design, contains no unlawful statements, does not infringe the rights of others, and that any necessary written permissions to quote from other sources have been obtained by the author/s.
Papers to be published in the Polytehnic and Design, should be written in US or British English. The metrology and terminology used in the paper have to meet legal regulations, standards and International System of Units (SI) (Quantities and Units: ISO 80 000 - from Part 1 to Part 14).
The author hereby assigns to the Polytehnic and Design the copyright in the above article (for U.S. government employees: to the extent transferable), throughout the world, in any form, in any language, for the full term of copyright, effective upon acceptance for publication.
The manuscript for this Journal should be prepared in line with the submission guidelines of the Polytehnic and Design. Any manuscript submitted to our Journal must not have already been published in another Journal or be under consideration by any other Journal. Thus, all papers submitted to the Journal must be original contributions and should not be under consideration for publication in another Journal simultaneously. The manuscripts of papers presented at conferences can be submitted unless they have been published as part of the conference proceedings in a peer reviewed Journal. The authors are required to ensure that no material submitted as part of the manuscript infringes the existing copyrights, or the rights of a third party. The authors who publish in the Polytehnic and Design need to transfer the copyright of their work to the Polytehnic and Design to make it an open-access paper to global readers.
The Polytehnic and Design follows double blind review with respect to contributors and reviewers; however, it is possible that a reviewer may have seen an earlier version of the research in the form of a conference paper, a paper presented at a research seminar, or a working paper. The Editorial Board is aware of author/s' identity.
Number of Reviewers: Two independent and international reviewers.
Average Time Required for Review: It depends from case to case. As we have already mentioned, most papers will be reviewed by two or more independent reviewers. They may also be read and considered by the members of the Journal's Editorial Board and ultimately by the editor(s) before a decision is rendered. The reviewers are academics or professionals working in the field and also writing papers themselves. They offer their time and their expertise voluntarily in order to assist in the improvement of papers and to encourage new research in their topic of interest. Delays will inevitably occur when reviewers are busy. They may have a number of journals sending them papers to be reviewed. Our Journal may also receive high levels of submissions throughout the year. The Editorial Board of our Journal work tirelessly to ensure that peer review is as timely and rigorous as possible. Waiting times can vary, depending on the subject area.
