Editorial Review Process:

All published journal papers are refereed to by international competent researchers and scientists. The papers are reviewed by industry experts who are in a close contact with the editorial board, so that the practical elements can combine harmoniously with the theoretical aspects.
Manuscripts must be written in appropriate English. Contributions are accepted for review with the understanding that the same paper has not been published anywhere else.
Each submission is blind peer-reviewed. The completion of the blind review takes approximately 1 to 2 months. Once that process is completed, the contact author will receive an email indicating whether the paper has been:

  • accepted for publication without change;
  • provisionally accepted for publication pending certain changes;
  • rejected for publication.

The reviewers will evaluate the submitted articles according to the following criteria: originality, presentation, linguistic quality, scientific significance, and relevance to the journal.

The Editor-in-Chief reserves the right to refuse any typescript, whether on invitation or otherwise, and to make suggestions and/or modifications before publication. Papers are published based on the reviews.
