Paper Selection and Publishing Process

  1. There is no submission fee.
  2. Submission Acknowledgement: When you submit a manuscript online, you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter sent by the online system automatically. For email submission, the editor or editorial assistant sends an e-mail confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant.
  3. Basic Review: The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the journal’s focus and scope. Next a check for the similarity rate.
  4. Peer Review: We use a double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous. The submitted manuscript will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member as well as one to three external reviewers. The review process may take two to four weeks.
  5. The decision is Made: The decision to accept or reject an article is based on the suggestions of reviewers. If differences of opinion occur between reviewers, the editor-in-chief will weigh all comments and arrive at a balanced decision based on all comments, or the second round of peer review may be initiated.
  6. Notification of the Result of Review: The result of the review will be sent to the corresponding author and forwarded to other authors.
  7. Publication Fee is Paid: In an open-access model, we promise that readers don't pay for a subscription fee to access online published articles.
