The International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration (IJAV) is the refereed journal of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV). The IIAV is a non-profit international scientific society founded in 1995. The primary objective of the Institute is to advance the science of acoustics and vibration by creating an international organization that is responsive to the needs of scientists and engineers concerned with acoustics and vibration problems all around the world.
Manuscripts of articles, technical notes and letters-to-the-editor should be submitted to the Editor-in-Chief via the on-line submission system. Authors wishing to submit an article need to log in on the IJAV website first. Users logged into the website are able to submit new articles, track the status of their articles already submitted, upload revised articles, responses and/or rebuttals to reviewers, figures, biographies, photographs, copyright transfer agreements, and send comments to the editor. Each time the status of an article submitted changes, the author will also be notified automatically by email.
IIAV members can publish in IJAV free of charge and their papers will be displayed on-line immediately after they have been edited and page layout has been performed. (This is only applicable to IIAV members who have been in good standing for at least six months prior to the submission date.) Non-IIAV members will be required to pay a voluntary fixed fee of $500 USD per paper. Authors who pay the voluntary fixed fee of $500 USD will be granted expedited publication in the IJAV Journal and can be displayed on the Internet after acceptance, but prior to publication. If the publication charges are not honored, then the paper will be put in a waiting list for publication. Authors who do not pay the voluntary fixed fee will have their papers published but there may be a considerable delay. The English text of the papers must be of high quality. If the text submitted is of low quality, the authors will be informed and be offered the possibility of paying for English editing to bring the paper up to publication standards.
We believe that authors, reviewers and guests will find the new updated IJAV website easy to use and helpful.
