Change of Frequency (IMPORTANT)

Since 2019, JSMS has been included in Scopus. Since then, we received a lot of quality submissions from all over the world. In 2020 and 2023, the average acceptance rate of JSMS is under 30%. There is a long backlog (it will take at least 9 months from submission to publication) of submissions in JSMS.

Thus we will change the publishing frequency from 6 times per year to 12 times per year from 2024. Namely, JSMS will publish monthly. For each issue, we will publish less than 35 papers per issue (usually we publish 30 papers per issue to maintain consistency).
