OAE provides to scholars seamless professional publishing services and operates with short manuscript processing time, guaranteed by professional editors who act in strict compliance with standard editorial regulations. Manuscripts submitted to OAE journals are usually published within 6-10 weeks, provided that no major revisions are required. Compared to traditional printed journals, the online availability of OAE journals allows more-rapid publication with an average processing time of 16 days from acceptance to publication.
All manuscripts accepted for publication in OAE journals are strictly and thoroughly peer-reviewed by experts and evaluated in terms of originality, significance, novelty, integrity, quality of presentation, and scientific soundness, etc. At least two detailed review reports are collected during peer review.
After being officially accepted, manuscripts are processed by a professional production team for language editing, copy editing, typesetting, etc., to ensure the precise and exquisite presentation of our publications.
All publications of OAE journals are archived in Portico to ensure a long-term digital preservation.
Published articles are promoted around the world by editors via various channels, including databases, international conferences, social media, and hard copies of journals, etc. Articles of individual authors would thus be viewed and cited by a greater number of readers.
We charge authors low Article Processing Charges (APCs) to cover the basic costs for editorial handling and the operation of our publishing platform. No extra fees would be charged regardless of the length of article, number of tables and colorized figures. As we offer APC waivers and discounts to selected authors, we also publish a substantial portion of journals without charging APCs. For more information, please refer to Publication Fees.
