Publishing Process
This journal uses Open Journal System 3.1.2, which is an open-source journal management and publishing software developed, supported, and freely distributed by the Public Knowledge Project under the GNU General Public Licence.
All articles are Open Access and are immediately available online at no cost to read, distribute, and/or reuse.
Expert reviewers will evaluate the articles submitted to the journal.  While the objective of the peer review process is to ensure high-quality science, peer reviewers do not make the final decision to accept or reject papers for publication. The decision-making authority rests solely with the journal editor and the journal’s editorial board. The journal decision-making process includes the following steps:

  1. Registration on the Journal’s website by the corresponding author and providing the full affiliation of all authors. Submission of the paper in the proper format is required.
  2. After a paper is submitted to the journal, the Journal’s editor and/or a member of the editorial board will screen the manuscript and decide whether or not to send it for full peer review. At this stage, the paper may also be returned to the author for reformatting or other corrections to meet the minimum requirements of the Journal.
  3. After clearing the initial screening up to three peer reviewers are allocated to review the manuscript. The editor or editorial board member may also review the manuscript.
  4. The peer review is a double-blind process, which means that both the reviewers and authors identities are concealed throughout the review process.
  5. The Journal’s editor considers the peer reviewers’ reports, along with the evaluation form (completed by the reviewers), and makes a final decision as follows:

a.If at least two reviewers recommend rejection, the editor may reject the paper at this stage.                 
b. If at least one reviewer requests a major correction, the paper is sent back to the author to provide corrections and/or appropriate responses to the reviewer’s               comments.
c. If any of the reviewers decline to review the paper, or do not send their response about the paper within the predefined period of time, then another reviewer will be assigned by the editor.

         6. As soon as the corrected version of the paper along with the responses to the reviewers’ comments are submitted to the journal (normally within 2 weeks), they will be checked by the editor and sent to one of the reviewers for final consideration and recommendation.

           7. Based on the full peer review process outlined above the final decision is made by the editorial board.

             8. A formal letter of acceptance is issued by the Journal’s office for the accepted papers.

             9. The papers are published in the journal based on a “first come, first served” policy.
