To safeguard the authors’ work, the editorial board and referees will keep all information contained in the manuscript confidential until it is published.

Processing/Publication Fees

Moreover, there are also no publication or processing charge/fees required to publish in the journal.

Acceptance Criteria

The paper accepted after peer-review process will be sent for publication. JScE has an online-first policy and the accepted papers will appear online in journal website (jsce.com.np) immediately after acceptance. All accepted papers will then be compiled in the print format.
