Publication Policies

Article Review and Selection Process
Each submitted article will undergo the following general process:.

  • The editor will first determine whether the submission fits the journal’s aim and scope. A check for the similarity rate is also done. Any submission that is deemed to be out of the journal’s scope or containing plagiarism, including self-plagiarism, will be rejected.
  • The editor will decide whether the screened submission needs to be re-submitted with better English language editing before it is passed to the review process. The publisher also provides language editing service for a fee.
  • At least two reviewers will review every submitted paper. Reviewers are unaware of the authors' identity and authors are also unaware of the identity of reviewers (double-blind peer-review method). The reviewing process will consider novelty, objectivity, method, scientific impact, conclusion, and references. The reviewers will suggest to the editor whether to accept or reject the submission.
  • Reviewers' comments are then sent to the corresponding author of accepted papers for necessary actions and responses. The revised submission is then uploaded to the system by the corresponding author.
  • Based on the revised submission, the editor will send the final decision to the corresponding author. For accepted papers, once the author has paid the APC charge, it will be passed to the final publication process.
