IJOKS supports open access policy, so that every article published online can be accessed without any restriction or subscription worldwide. Open access is based on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
IJOKS accepts mansucripts, book reviews or translation texts for publication. As soon as the editorial team receives the submissions, two experts are assigned as reviewers.
