Editorial policies

All papers, including those invited by the Editor, are subject to peer review. Manuscripts is reviewed by at least 2 external experts and editors. Received manuscripts will be peer-reviewed and a primary editorial decision will be sent to the authors within 2 weeks after submission. The Editor is responsible for the final decision whether the manuscript is accepted or rejected. All articles will be published within 2 months after final acceptance by the Editorial Office.

  • The journal uses a single-blind peer review process: the reviewers know the identity of the authors, but not vice versa.
  • Decision letter will be sent to corresponding author via registered e-mail. Reviewers can request authors to revise the content. The corresponding author must indicate the modifications made in their item-by-item response to the reviewers’ comments. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within 4 weeks of the editorial decision is regarded as a withdrawal.
  • The editorial committee has the right to revise the manuscript without the authors’ consent, unless the revision substantially affects the original content.
  • After review, the editorial board determines whether the manuscript is accepted for publication or not. Once rejected, the manuscript does not undergo another round of review.
