The first issue of each year is published on-line in the last week of June and second issue in the last week of December. The hard version of each issue is published after the soft version.

Peer-review Policy:

Al-azva follows the peer-review process for the publication of any article. Positive reports recommending the publication of script by at least two experts one from technologically advanced counties is compulsory. If the editor finds the script needs to be amended or corrected in the light of the evaluation reports he will send back the script to the author. The paper will only be published after amendments/corrections.

Plagiarism policy:

Al-azva does not publish plagiarized material. A system generated report from turnitin or any other software is a prior to publish requirement. Less than 19% similarity is however bearable according to HEC plagiarism policy.
