Publishing Process

Publishing Process

Receive 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 will send an e-mail confirmation to the author within one or two working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your spam email box or contact the editorial assistant.

Review processes

The editor or editorial assistant determines whether the manuscript fits the journal's focus and scope. Similarity rate checking will be done using software. Any manuscripts out of the journal's scope or containing plagiarism will be rejected. We follow 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 board member along with one to three external reviewers. The review process may take two to four weeks.

Accept/Reject

The decision to accept or reject an article is based on the suggestions of reviewers. If two reviewers have given two different opinions, then the editor-in-chief will weigh all comments and makes a decision based on all comments, or a re-review process may be initiated. The result of review will be sent to the corresponding author and forwarded to other authors.
