Information For Authors

Interested in submitting to this journal? We recommend that you review the About the Journal page for the journal's section policies, as well as the Author Guidelines. Authors need to register with the journal prior to submitting or, if already registered, can simply log in and begin the five-step process.

All articles accepted first undergo a plagiarism check, following which they are subject to double-blind peer review. An article may be rejected by the editor upon receipt for one of the following reasons: its similarity index exceeds 15%; it is written in poor language; it is beyond the remit of the journal; it does not reach what the editorial board considers to be the appropriate academic standards of excellence. If it meets the preliminary conditions, a paper is sent to two reviewers, during which time both the author and the reviewers remain anonymous. The reviewers may suggest changes, but they are not responsible for the proofreading of the manuscript. The final decision to reject or to accept a manuscript belongs ultimately to the editorial board.

The article will be returned to the author together with the reviewers’ comments if any changes are necessary. When the manuscript is accepted, it will be proofread by a language consultant and any further suggestions for amendment will be sent to the author.
