English Editing

Submissions should be in English. All papers and articles must be language edited before submission in order to allow the reviewers to comfortably read, review and understand the paper. In particular, non-native English speakers are strongly encouraged to have their writing edited before submission. A quality edit will render the work accessible to a wider community of professionals and novice readers.


Peer-Review Process

Submitted papers will be sent to the reviewers or returned to the corresponding author for corrections and re-submission if the submission guidelines are not met. Based on the review guidelines, the reviewers are expected to give feedback and comment on the paper. The decision of the reviewers is considered final.

The Editors reserve the right to decline the submitted manuscript without review, if the works reported are not sufficiently novel or important to merit publication in the journal, or of limited interest to the target audience. The Editor seeks advice from experts in the appropriate field. All manuscripts are refereed by a minimum of two reviewers, or three in case of inconsistent recommendations. The final decision of acceptance will be made by Executive Editor or, in case of conflict, by the Editor-in-Chief.

Manuscript that has been accepted by the reviewers (peer Review) will be sent to author for final revision in the Ms-word document. Author(s) are encouraged to make necessary revision within the word file and indicate where the changes are made. Author(s) are also requested not to format the MS-Word file. After receiving the final revision file from the corresponding author, the paper layout will be sent to the author for final revision for correction of typos or any error during the process of publication. The paper layout will be sent to author in a pdf format where changes within the paper cannot be made, however, author can indicate the error and correction needed which will further be rectified before the publication.

After revision, the manuscript and a scanned copy of a cover letter should be sending via e-mail to: (e-mail).
