Journal of Algebraic Hyperstructures and Logical Algebras (JAHLA) is an international semiannual journal published by University of Hatef founded in 2020 and supported by the International Algebraic Hyperstructures Association and Iranian Fuzzy System Society.

In mathematical logic, algebraic logic is the reasoning obtained by manipulating equations with free variables. What is now usually called classical algebraic logic focuses on the identification and algebraic description of models appropriate for the study of various logics (in the form of classes of algebras that constitute the algebraic semantics for these deductive systems) and connected problems like representation and duality. Well known results like the representation theorem for Boolean algebras and Stone duality fall under the umbrella of classical algebraic logic.

On the other side, Hyperstructures are algebraic structures equipped with at least one multi-valued operation, called a hyperoperation. A hyperoperation on a nonempty set is a mapping from to the nonempty power set. The largest classes of the hyperstructures are the ones called Hν structures.

Given the importance and applications of these two subjects, this journal publishes original high quality research papers and invited research and survey articles mainly in two subjects:

Statement

Journal of Algebraic Hyperstructures and Logical Algebras (JAHLA) is a double blind peer reviewed electronic and print quarterly publication concerned with in logical algebras, ordered algebraic structures and algebraic hyperstructures. JAHLA is a quarterly open access publication, which publishes of original research papers and review papers.

JAHLA is the member of Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE). The coverage begins with JAHLA Journal content published since the 1st issue in winter 2020.

Core Value

JAHLA Journal has the core values as:

- Scientific integrity

- Quality

- Originality

- Clarity

- Innovation

- Knowledge dissemination.

Publishing Schedule

JAHLA is a quarterly publication releasing four seasonal issues each year (winter, spring, summer, autumn).  Exact schedule of publication for each season is as the following:

1. May
2. November

Governing Body

JAHLA has a very strong editorial board, whose members are recognized experts in the subject areas included within the journal’s scope. The full names and affiliations of the journal’s editors are provided on the journal’s Web site

Editor Roles and Responsibilities

Editors of scientific journals have responsibilities toward the authors who provide the contents of the journals, the peer reviewers who comment on the suitability of manuscripts for publication, the journal’s readers and the scientific community, the publishers of the journals, and the public as a whole

Editorial Board Participation

The editor-in-chief should define the terms and roles of the editors and editorial board that are appointed by and report to him or her.  The editor-in-chief or principal editor should ensure that the journal’s editors and editorial board are identified in the journal masthead; receive the necessary training and oversight to adequately perform editorial functions; and actively perform their responsibilities, such as assigning reviewers or reviewing manuscripts and advising on policy considerations.

Editorial Freedom

The JAHLA adopts the editor freedom, which holds that Editors-in-Chief have full authority over the entire content of the selected articles, which are to be published in JAHLA. Some of the privileges are as follows.

• Editors-in-Chief owners should have the power of evaluation, selection, scheduling, or editing of individual articles either directly or by creating an environment that strongly influences decisions.
• Editors should base editorial decisions on the validity of the work and its importance to the journal’s readers, not on the commercial implications for the journal.
• Editors-in-chief should have the responsibility to establish an independent editorial advisory board to help the editor establish and maintain editorial policy.
• Editors should seek input as needed from a broad array of advisers, such as reviewers, editorial staff, an editorial board, and readers, to support editorial decisions and potentially controversial expressions of opinion
• If legal problems arise, the Editor should inform their legal adviser and their owner and/or publisher as soon as possible.
• Editors should defend the confidentiality of authors and peer-reviewers (names and reviewer comments) in accordance with JAHLA policy.
• To secure editorial freedom in practice, the editor should have direct access to the highest level of ownership, not to a delegated manager or administrative officer.

Confidentiality

Manuscripts submitted to journals are privileged communications that are authors’ private, confidential property, and authors may be harmed by premature disclosure of any or all of a manuscript’s details.

• Editors therefore must not share information about manuscripts, including whether they have been received and are under review, their content and status in the review process, criticism by reviewers, and their ultimate fate, to anyone other than the authors and reviewers. JAHLA has some policies on confidentiality as follows.
• Editors and the publication staff should keep all information about a submitted manuscript confidential, sharing it only with those involved in the evaluation, review, and publication processes.
• Editors should consider adding a confidentiality notice to all correspondence, including reviewer forms, to serve as a reminder to authors, editors, and reviewers.
• Journals should have a mechanism such as safely store, archive, and/or destroy paper and electronic manuscript review files and related content. Records and retention schedules, such as how long to keep published manuscripts and associated correspondence or rejected manuscripts and associated correspondence, should be documented in writing and reviewed on a regular basis.
• Confidential information should not be used for an editor’s own purposes, and editors should take reasonable steps to ensure that such information is not used inappropriately for the advantage of others. In cases of breach of confidentiality by those involved in the peer-review process, editors should contact the involved parties and follow up on such cases until they are satisfactorily resolved.
• Requests from third parties to use manuscripts and reviews for legal proceedings should be politely refused, and editors should do their best not to provide such confidential material should it be subpoenaed.
• Editors should not publish or publicize peer reviewers’ comments without permission of the reviewer and author.
• Confidentiality may have to be breached if dishonesty or fraud is alleged, but editors should notify authors or reviewers if they intend to do so and confidentiality must otherwise be honored.

Integrity

Editorial decisions should be based on the relevance of a manuscript to the journal and on the manuscript’s originality, quality, and contribution to evidence about important questions. Those decisions should not be influenced by commercial interests, personal relationships or agendas, or findings that are negative or that credibly challenge accepted wisdom. The JAHLA has very strong ethical policy, which is based on the Committee on Publication Ethics (COPE) guidelines and complies with International Committee of JAHLA Editorial Board codes of conduct. Readers, authors, reviewers and editors should follow these ethical policies once working with JAHLA (http://www.jahla.hatef.ac.ir/journal/process?ethics).

Peer Review

JAHLA is a double blind peer reviewed electronic and print quarterly. JAHLA publishes original research papers and review papers. The publication exercises peer review process in order to quality control by qualified specialists is covered by the database. The Editorial Board will select publications with excellence in content, preferably researchers output not in commercial target.
