Information For Authors

Are you interested in submitting a manuscript? We recommend that you review the specific policies of the Journal in About the journal as well as in the Guidelines for the author. Authors must register here in the Journal before submitting a manuscript or, if they are already registered, they can simply sign in and start the submission process with five steps.

No submission fee is required for manuscripts. In the event that your manuscript is not accepted by the Editorial Committee or by the peer reviewers, no fee would be charged from the authors. Publication fee is required only when the Editorial Committee accepts your manuscript for publication in the Journal. Payment of the publication fee is a necessary requirement to proceed with correction of the style and layout of your manuscript and to assign it to the volume/issue on the Journal website.
