Editorial Policy:

Reviewers evaluate manuscripts using several criteria including: originality of the works, scholarly relevance, professional/industrial relevance, completeness of the works, acknowledgement of the works of others by references, organisation of the manuscripts, clarity in writing, tables, graphs and illustrations.

Decisions regarding publication of submitted manuscripts are based on the recommendations of members of the editorial review board. Reviewers’ comments are made available to authors. Manuscripts submitted for possible publication will be judged primarily on their substantive content, but writing style, structure, and length are also considered (see submission guidelines).
