Focus and Scope

The Iranian Journal of Numerical Analysis and Optimization (IJNAO) is published twice a year by the Department of Applied Mathematics, Faculty of Mathematical Sciences, Ferdowsi University of Mashhad. Research papers dealing with different aspects of numerical analysis, optimization, and their applications are considered for publication. Manuscripts should be in English, original and should not be under consideration for publication by any other journal.

Peer Review Process

After receiving an article, the editorial committee will assign referees. Refereeing process can be followed via the web site of the Journal. The manuscripts are accepted for review with the understanding that the work has not been published and also it is not under consideration for publication by any other journal. All submissions should be accompanied by a written declaration signed by the author(s) that the paper has not been published before and has not been submitted for consideration elsewhere.

Open Access Policy

Iranian Journal of Numerical Analysis and Optimization (IJNAO) supports global exchange of knowledge on non-commercial basis. As such, all research articles accepted and published by IJNAO are immediately freely available online to read, download and share, without any subscription charges or registration barriers.

Peer Review Process

Manuscripts are considered for publication in IJNAO provided they have not been published or accepted for publication elsewhere and are not being concurrently considered in another journal. Authors will usually be notified of acceptance, rejection, or need for revision within 6 months.

Articles are judged on their contribution to the advancement of the science and/or practice of Numerical Analysis and Optimization. IJNAO editors expect all manuscripts to meet high standards for scholarly work. Manuscripts are judged not only on depth and scope of ideas presented, but also on their clarity, organization, readability, and balanced argumentation.

The author’s name(s) and credentials are removed prior to the review process to maximize objectivity and ensure that the manuscripts are judged solely on the basis of content and contribution to the field.

All submissions to IJNAO are first evaluated by the journal’s Editor-in-Chief or one of the journal’s Associate Editors for their appropriateness to the scope and objectives of IJNAO. If deemed appropriate, the paper is sent out for review using a double blind process. Manuscripts are reviewed simultaneously by reviewers who are experts in their respective fields. The first review of every manuscript is performed by at least two anonymous referees. Upon the receipt of the referee’s reports, the paper is accepted, rejected, or sent back to the author(s) for revision. Revised papers are assigned to an Associate Editor who makes an evaluation of the acceptability of the revision. Based upon the Associate Editor’s evaluation, the paper is accepted, rejected, or returned to the author(s) for another revision. The second revision is then evaluated by the Editor-in-Chief, possibly in consultation with the Associate Editor who handled the original paper and the first revision, for a usually final resolution.

The authors can track their submissions and the process of peer review via: http://ijnao.um.ac.ir.
