SAA publishes papers reporting results of original research on any aspects of mites and ticks. Submission of a manuscript implies that the results have not been published and are not being considered for publication elsewhere. The journal assumes that all authors of a multi-authored manuscript agree to its submission. All papers are peer-reviewed before acceptance for publication.

All submitted papers will be peer-reviewed before
acceptance. Rejected papers may be re-submitted once.
During the online submission process, the author is encouraged to
indicate to the Chief editor that (1) which of the editors listed
above this manuscript is intended if they have a preference and
(2) a list of potential reviewers. During the review
process, the figures may be inserted into ms word file if the size
of the file is not too big. If there are many plates, please
upload them as supplementary files.
Due to the increased number of submissions from 2015, editors
will be more selective in manuscript evaluation, (1) encouraging
more high quality non-taxonomic papers to address the balance
between taxonomic and non-taxonomic papers, and (2) discouraging
single species description while giving priority to high quality
systematic papers on comparative treatments and revisions of
multiple taxa. In addition to review papers and research articles
(over 4 printed pages), we welcome short correspondence (up to 4
printed pages) for condensed version of small papers (e.g.
mini-paper such as single experiment/table/image paper), comments
on other papers, and short reviews or opinion pieces. The
correspondence format will save space by omitting the abstract,
key words, and major headings such as Introduction.
Here are some
information for authors who need instruction on using the
manuscript submission system (Open Journal System).
