JHSS- Publication Processes
The publication process begins with the submission of a manuscript to the editorial office of the journal either through the journal submission platform available at
Peer Review Policy
JHSS employs a rigorous peer review system. All submitted manuscripts undergo a double-blind peer review process before publication.
Authors are issued an Acceptance Letter for manuscripts that have been reviewed and accepted for publication by an editor.
Prior to publication, galley proof of the article is sent to the corresponding author. Authors are advised to read the proof and correct minor typographical or grammatical errors. Authors should promptly return proofs to the editorial office.
Once proofs are received by the editorial office, the manuscripts are usually included in the next issue of the journal. The article will thereafter be published on the journal’s website.
After the article is made available on the journal’s website, a publication notice is sent to the corresponding author with links to the issue and the article.
Payment of Publication Fees
After a manuscript has been peer reviewed and accepted by an editor, authors are guided on how to make payment of the Article Processing Fee as follows:
- Postgraduate students and ESSRAK fully affiliated members: Kshs. 9000/- per article
- Any other person: Kshs. 12000/- per article
