Peer Review PoliciesThe Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the studies reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal. Manuscripts deemed unsuitable (insufficient originality or of limited interest to the target audience) are returned to the author(s) without review. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. Research articles are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers. The journal uses double-blind peer review model. Authors are requested to suggest two persons competent to review their manuscript. However, please note that this will be treated only as a suggestion, and the final selection of reviewers is exclusively the Editor’s decision. The final decision of acceptance is made by the Editor-in-Chief.
If article has been accepted for publications, each author must sign a Copyright agreement form and send the signed form, in electronic format, to the Editor, together with the final version of the article. This enable us (The Journal) to have the rights to the paper in order to ensure copyright protection against infringerment, and to disseminate your article, and our journal, as wide as possible.
Authors should prepare their manuscripts submitted to the journal exactly according to the instructions given here. Manuscripts which do not follow the format and style of the journal may be returned to the authors for revision, or to choose the professional manuscript formatting.
Note that since 2019 we require that all authors/coauthors to have an ORCID (a unique researcher identifier) at the time of publication. Application for an ORCID is free of charge and only takes a few minutes - please go to ORCID.org to apply for one. We also recommend that the corresponding author contacts all of his coauthors and encourages them to obtain an ORCID during the manuscript preparation process. While they can be added after submission, ORCIDs are required in case of acceptance.
