Attachment Files

In this journal, it is possible to exhibit works related to the arts and sciences as attachment files. Ample attachments are encouraged when it is not possible to sufficiently represent your research results within the PDF file of the paper Body Text.
File formats are not especially defined, however standardized file formats should be used when possible. In particular, device-dependent file formats and those that require specific applications should be avoided, since they hinder not only browsing but also peer review.

10. Review Criteria on Originality

In the case that an original paper has the same content as one already released or in the process of being released in another publication, it cannot be accepted by this journal. Additionally, anything regarded as identical to a written work for which copyrights are owned by a party other than the author cannot be accepted by this journal. However, as an exception, original papers with content similar to written works such as patent publications and proceedings of international conferences, meetings, or seminars may be accepted. Further exceptions may exist for the acceptance of special edition papers.

In order to determine if a paper submitted as an original paper to this societyfs journal satisfies the review criteria on originality, the publications committee will exchange paper information with other academic societies and organizations as needed. Information exchanged by the publications committee will be used only for the judgment of review criteria on originality. In addition, the exchanged information will be returned to the other academic societies and organizations or destroyed, within six months from the exchange. Furthermore, at the time of an exchange, a request will be sent in advance to the other society or organization for the handling of information at a level equal to or less than that of this societyfs publication committee.

11. Author Qualifications

At the least one author of the submitted paper must be a formal member of this society at the time of submission or publication. If none of the authors are formal members at the time of submission, the paper will be received under the premise that the procedure to become a formal member is underway.
