Paper Selection and Publishing Process

When you submit a manuscript online, you will receive a submission acknowledgement letter sent by the online system automatically.

If you fail to receive this confirmation, please check your bulk email box or contact the editorial assistant by email: firstname.lastname@example.org.

d) 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 a second round of peer review may be initiated.
e) Notification of the Result of Review
The result of review will be sent to the corresponding author and forwarded to other authors.
