Editorial policy and general information

Journal of Innovation in Applied Research (JIAR) is a multidisciplinary, a peer-reviewed journal that publishes "innovative and applied research" in the field of Biotechnology, Genetic Engineering, Genetics, Microbiology, Microbial Technology, Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Pharmaceutical Sciences and biotechnology, Industrial processing, and biotechnology, Agriculture biotechnology and microbiology, Nanotechnology applications in biological and pharmaceutical sciences, Biomedical engineering, Food and Dairy Microbiology, Environmental biotechnology and Data science applications. JIAR seeks to publish high-quality papers that describe significant and novel findings, advance knowledge in a diversity of scientific fields in the form of original articles, short communications, reviews, case reports, or letters to the editor. JIAR generally accepts 33-35% of papers for publication that are submitted

Review process

Manuscripts will be evaluated on the basis that they present new approaches into the investigated topic and are probable to contribute to a research progress or a change in clinical practice. It is understood that all authors listed on a manuscript have agreed to its submission. The signature of the corresponding author on the letter of submission signifies that these conditions have been fulfilled. Received manuscripts will initially be examined by the JIAR editorial office and those thought to have insufficient grounds for publication may be rejected without external evaluation. Manuscripts not prepared in the recommended style described in Research Review Article Template will be sent back to authors for correction. The authors will be notified with the reference number, once the manuscript has been assigned to an Associate Editor. The assigned manuscripts will be sent to 2-3 independent experts for scientific assessment. The assessment process commonly takes an average of 1-3 months.


Authors wishing to include figures, tables, or text that have already been published elsewhere will be required to obtain permission from the copyright owner(s) for both the print and online format and to include evidence that such permission has been granted when submitting their papers. Any received material lacking such evidence will be assumed to originate from the authors.


Every effort may be made by the publisher and editorial board to ensure that no inaccurate or misleading data or statements appear in the JIAR. However, they wish to make it clear that the data and opinions appearing in the articles herein are the responsibility of the authors concerned. Accordingly, the publisher and the editorial board accept no liability whatsoever for the consequences of any inaccurate or misleading data or statements, intentional or not.

Articles types

JIAR seeks to publish experimental and theoretical research results of outstanding significance in the form of original articles, short communications, reviews, case reports, or letters to the editor. Original articles: Articles that represent in-depth research in various scientific disciplines. Short communications: Should be complete manuscripts of significant importance. However, their length and/or depth do not justify a full-length paper. The total number of figures should not exceed 6 whereas a total number of tables should not exceed 2. The number of words should be = 3,000 Review articles: Should normally comprise less than 10,000 words; contain unstructured abstract and includes up-to-date references. Meta-analyses are considered as reviews. Special attention will be paid to the teaching value of review papers. Mini-reviews: These are reviews of important and recent topics that are presented in a concise and well-focused manner. The number of words is limited to 5,000 words. Case reports: A detailed report of the symptoms, signs, diagnosis, treatment, and follow-up of an individual patient (i.e., clinically important information on common and rare conditions). Letter to the editor for comments on recently published articles. Special reports: Papers may be accepted on the basis that they provide a systematic, critical, and up-to-date overview of literature pertaining to research or clinical topics.
