Paper Submission

All papers should be submitted via e-mail to

The electronic manuscript shall be prepared in accordance with the “Manuscript Preparation”.  Submission of an article implies that the work described has not been published previously (except in the form of an abstract or as part of a published lecture or academic thesis), it is not under consideration for publication elsewhere, its publication is approved by all authors and that, if accepted, will not be published elsewhere in the same form, in English or in any other language, without the written consent of the Publisher.

All submitted manuscripts will undergo peer review. The peer-reviewed original research manuscripts and research review manuscripts of substance will be published online. The Editors reserve the right to edit or otherwise make necessary amendments deemed fit, but authors will receive proofs for approval before publication.

Paper Selection and Publication Process

  1. Upon receipt of paper submission, the Editor will send an e-mail of confirmation to the corresponding within 7 working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission/e-mail may be missed.
  2. We use a single-blind system for peer-review; reviewers’ identities remain anonymous to authors. The paper will be peer-reviewed by two experts; one is an editorial staff and the other is an external reviewer. The review process may take 3-4 weeks.
  3. Notification of the result of the review will be sent by e-mail.


Page proofs will be sent to the corresponding author for final checking. Corrections to the proofs must be restricted to printer’s errors: any other changes to the text, in equations or grammar, may be charged to the author. Proofs should be returned to the editors within three days of receipt to minimize the risk of the author’s contribution having to be held over to a later issue. The editors do not accept responsibility for the correctness of published contents. It is the author’s responsibility to check the content at proof stage.

Plagiarism Checking

A policy of screening for plagiarism shall be performed using platform. Authors shall attach the Turnitin report with each submission.

Cost of Publication
