Fast-Track Review Fee (FTF)

Authors sometimes have to meet publication deadlines, e.g. for promotion & tenure or thesis defense, grant proposals, the spending of research funds before a certain deadline, publication of follow-up papers, or because the findings are deemed important. To facilitate a speedy turn-around when a rapid decision is required, JRMS offers a review model in which selected peer reviewers may be paid to deliver high-quality and speedy peer-review reports. This is entirely optional - if you do not wish to pay for a fast-track peer review process, just submit your paper normally as described before in the instruction for authors. If you opt for fast-track review, you are guaranteed: a rapid editorial decision and peer-review comments within 4 weeks (from submission to acceptance) after submission and payment of the fee.

In order to take advantage of this, authors must pay a non-refundable fast-track fee (FTF). This should be done within 24 hours after submission. Authors should send their submission confirmation email to for initiation of review process.

The fast-track fee for the first review process is US$ 100 (for overseas authors) and 4000000 Rials (for Iranian authors). The review fee is not refundable if we reject the paper (with or without peer-reviews) in the time period stipulated above.
