The Reason why the Frequency of the Journal has been Revised:

Initially, IMSTS was published bimonthly. However, the unavailability of the option for “bimonthly” publication in HEC’s RGMS urged the Administration of Rehmat and Maryam Researches to consult with the Research & Innovation Division of Higher Education Commission via And, in accordance with the advice of the concerned officer, the frequency of journal has been converted from bimonthly to monthly.

Later on, editorial and advisory boards of the IMSTS decided to convert the frequency of journal from monthly to quarterly basis. Hence, IMSTS is now going to be published quarterly from November 01, 2023.
