Peer Review Process

Each submitted paper will be reviewed through a blind peer-review process for its contributions, originality, and presentations (including abstract and keyword, conformity with the journal style, systematics of writing and discussion, accuracy of language usage, and references used).
The final decision of manuscript acceptance is solely made by the Editor in Chief (together with Editorial Board, if required for consideration) according to reviewers' critical comments. The final decision of the manuscript is solely based on the Editor and Editorial Board's final review which considers peer-reviewers comments (but not solely by the Reviewer).
