The International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration (IJAV) is the refereed open-access journal of the International Institute of Acoustics and Vibration (IIAV). The IJAV includes refereed articles, technical notes, letters-to-the-editor, book reviews, author biographies, and announcements of general interest to readers.

The International Journal of Acoustics and Vibration (IJAV) is indexed and abstracted in several databases including WoS ©, Science Citation Index Expanded, Current Contents - Engineering, Computing & Technology, and Scopus ©

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 Mandatory Article Processing Charge (APC) of $200 USD if the manuscript is accepted for publication after review. The APC fee allows IIAV to make your research freely available to all readers using the Open Access model. If the $200 USD (APC) publication fee is not honored, papers will not be published.

In addition, Non-IIAV members who pay an extra voluntary publication fee (EVPF) of $500 USD will be granted expedited publication in the IJAV Journal and their papers can be displayed on the Internet after acceptance. If the voluntary fee of $500 USD is not paid, 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 manuscript will be more than likely rejected. For authors whose first language is not English, we recommend having their manuscripts reviewed and edited prior to submission by a native English speaker with scientific expertise. There are many commercial editing services which can provide this service at a cost to the authors.

Authors choosing to submit their manuscripts for publication consideration in the IJAV agree to follow formatting and style guidelines, which can be displayed or downloaded using the link below. If they do not, the editorial staff reserves the right to delay processing a manuscript until authors comply.
