Question: What the paper version of the journal looks like?  When will I receive them?

Answer: The paper version has a plastic color cover with all the articles in that volume. Your article and others’ ones will appear in the same hard copy.  The paper version will be sent out roughly around 22 days after the online publication via international post.  The receiving time depends on the shipping address.  Authors from North America/European countries usually can receive their package earlier than other authors.  Also, it largely depends on how your local postal service handles international mails. Authors who need to the paper version urgently can also request to use courier service.
