Paper Selection and Publication Process

Step 1: Submission Acknowledgement: If you submit your manuscript online or through the journal email, you will receive an email of confirmation from the editorial assistants within 1-2 working days.

Step 2: Basic Review: The editor or editorial assistant determines whether a manuscript fits the journal’s aim and scope. Then, the manuscript is checked for its similarity index by CrossCheck, powered by iThenticate.

Step 4: Acceptance/Rejection Decision: The decision to accept or reject a manuscript is based on 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 a second round of peer review may be initiated.

Step 5: Notification of the result of review to the corresponding authors by E-mail.
