Peer Review Process
All manuscripts submitted to this journal must follow the author's focus, scope, and guidelines. Manuscripts submitted must discuss scientific benefits or novelty by the focus and scope. Manuscripts may be returned to authors without informed judgment if they do not meet all submission requirements, are not in the correct format, or cannot be downloaded reliably.
Submissions must represent the original and independent work of the author. We will reject manuscripts without review if they are insufficient, exceeds our word limit, or the format is incorrect; it was poorly presented and unclear. The Editor in Chief or Associate Editor will handle manuscripts that pass the initial assessment to oversee the review process for contribution, originality, relevance, and presentation.
Once a manuscript has passed the initial screening, it will be submitted to at least two independent experts for peer review. A double-blind review was applied, in which the author's identity is unknown to the reviewer. Peer review comments are confidential and will not be disclosed to the authors. All manuscripts are subject to peer review. If a revision is invited, the appropriate author must submit the revised manuscript within the time specified in the email. The review process for articles by reviewers is 2—16 weeks (for regular article submissions). We ensure that reviewed manuscripts are treated confidentially prior to publication, as described in publication ethics. The editor will decide on the acceptance of the article based on the reviewer's comments.
Once the review process is complete, you will receive information via email from the Editor. We will determine whether your manuscript is eligible or not, by giving a decision: resubmit, revision (with minor or major revision), declined, or accepted. These types of decisions can be found in the Author Guidelines.
