Editorial and Publishing Policies

The IJMSA publishes four issues per year. The volume number is incremented once a year. Articles are identified by volume, issue, and a six-digit number, for instance, Int. J. Microgravity Sci. Appl. 39(1) 390102 (2022).

A manuscript sent to the International Journal of Microgravity Application (IJMSA) should not be simultaneously considered for publication by another journal. A manuscript that has been published or has been submitted for publication to another journal should not be submitted to the International Journal of Microgravity Application (IJMSA) as original articles.
