What is e-Version FirstTM

e-Version First is a feature offered through our journal platform. It allows PDF versions of manuscripts that have been peer reviewed and accepted, to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final printed journal. Readers can freely access or cite the article. We aim to publish accepted manuscripts in e-Version First two week after the final draft has been completed.


Paper Selection and Publication Process

a) Upon receipt of paper submission, the Editor sends an E-mail of confirmation to the corresponding author within 1-3 working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission/e-mail may be missed. Please contact the Editor in time for that.

The review process normally takes 2-4 weeks.
