Author Guidelines

Manuscripts Preparation



Submission Preparation Checklist

As part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.

  1. The submission has not been previously published, nor is it before another journal for consideration (or an explanation has been provided in Comments to the Editor).
  2. Authors must disclose confidentially to the editorial staff of the journal any potentially overlapping materials, whether already published, or currently in peer review. Submissions previously submitted to other journals have to be declared as such to avoid burdening an already labor-intensive peer review process. It is best if the authors attach clearly labeled copies of any such potentially duplicative work, along with their original submission to the journal. They should include either the previous critique, or a cover letter with the new submission that explains how the authors have modified the manuscript to address the previous (outside) critique.
  3. The submission file is in MS-Word format and sent through the online submission system.
  4. The text and references meet the formatting requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines. We strongly suggest that you use the template for preparing your paper.
  5. The authors agree to pay the publication fee of 200USD if the paper is accepted.
