Colour figures

Is there any fee for colour figures?


No. By default, figures appear in colour online, which may be black/white in print. Therefore, a reference to colour coding in both captions and main text should be avoided unless essential for the description of a figure.



Archiving policy

What is the archiving policy?

The plan for electronic backup and preservation of access to the journal's content is indicated. This policy sets out how the authors of JHAP can archive copies of their work on their web pages, corporate web pages, and various other subject repositories. 

JHAP is an open-access license; articles can be made available immediately according to their specific Creative Common license terms. Suppose an author has published an article under an Open Access license. In that case, JHAP will encourage the author to share the version of the record upon publication instead of the accepted manuscript.

Authors may also reuse the Abstract and Citation information (e.g. Title, Author name, Publication dates) of their article anywhere at any time, including social media such as LinkedIn, Facebook, blogs and Twitter, providing that, where possible, a link is included back to the article on the JHAP site. Preferably, the link should include the Digital Object Identifier (DOI), which can be found in the Citation information about the article online. The accepted version may be placed on the author's website and/or the author's company/institutional repository or archive. Self-archiving of the submitted version is not subject to an embargo period.

JHAP is now formally archived at: 

National Library and Archives of Iran (NLAI).





SINAWEB downloads JHAP's backed-up information daily from the JHAP website and stores it in two safe places.




What is the journal language?

Only articles written in English are accepted for submission. The language must be sufficiently clear to allow for the effortless understanding of the scientific content. Otherwise, the manuscript will not be considered further by the editorial board. If an author repeatedly submits the same manuscript without significant improvement in the basic clarity and readability of the presentation, the manuscript may be definitively rejected by the editorial board on these grounds.
