FSTA is a completely multidisciplinary research journal with the motto knowledge without boundaries; we welcome submission in all areas of science, technology, applications and policy and related areas. The mode of publication of FSTA is online only.
However, FSTA is a journal in the area of science and technology, and the basic principles of science, viz, objectivity, verifiability and reproducibility are strongly upheld; subjective findings are not accepted as research articles. However, Reports and Correspondences with qualitative and subjective findings with weak objectivity/reproducibility can be considered with due declaration. Preference is for data/evidence-based research; however, strong logic-based analysis can also be considered.
FSTA also aims to be inclusive in its outreach, and Submissions should be prepared in a language communicative to a general science literate audience. Use of jargons should be minimized or accompanied with brief explanation.
FSTA follows a responsive but stringent review process; please visit Review Procedure on the homepage for more details.
