Peer Review Process

We will have two rounds in the review process. The first round will accept topic and article abstracts and will be reviewed by board editors. After being accepted by board editors based on relevance to the field and scientific soundness, submissions will be asked to submit the full paper for a second round of review. The second round will involve a more in-depth peer review process. Articles will be reviewed and revised by two editorial members and will be accepted based on scientific merit as well as novelty and interest of the research field. In addition, reviewers will also look for clarity of writing and a strong frame within the article.

 

Publication Frequency

Abstract articles will be accepted until mid October every year. Afterwards, articles will be accepted and published on a rolling basis throughout the year and bundled into an annual issue at the end of April.

 

Open Access Policy

This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
