  • Review Policy

Initial Screening
All submitted and invited papers should go through an initial screening process to screen papers which are not suitable or has have different focus, papers which are marginal, weak papers, etc. Only relevant and of high quality papers should be processed and sent to referees (we do not want to waste the time of the referees by sending poor or marginal papers to them). Send every paper which passes the initial screening process to be refereed by three experts.


  • Refereeing Process
  1. If two referees accept the paper, the paper is then considered for selection. However, if they accept the paper BUT the paper only scored marginal or just acceptable for Originality, Quality, Relevance, Presentation and Recommendation then the paper is not up to the standard of the journal and the editor should reject it.
  2. If two referees reject the paper, the paper is rejected and the authors are informed.
  3. If two referees disagree, then the third referee’s decision is final. Chairperson of the Editorial Board may reject papers which have been rejected by referees but cannot send acceptance letters to authors until the selected papers for the special issue and their refereeing reports have all been reviewed by the Chairperson of the Editorial Board.


  • Publication Process
  1. Title of the paper, names of authors, their affiliations, complete addresses and e mail addresses.
  2. The name, address, email address and fax number of the corresponding author to whom the proof of the typeset paper should go to for checking.
  3. A brief abstract.
  4. Brief biographical notes about authors.
  5. High quality and high resolution figures suitable for printing high quality figures in black and white.

If papers have been refereed and accepted and sent for typesetting, the authors have to abide by what they have written; no further changes are acceptable in:

  • Author‘s details (e.g. adding more names or deleting names) or in their sequence
  • The content of the paper (except for typesetting corrections) If authors wish to make changes to content, then the paper has to be withdrawn and must go back to be refereed as a new paper.

If there is any dispute about authorship or intellectual property, the paper must be withdrawn completely from publication until the authors settle their legal claims. It is not the publisher’s responsibility to solve or interfere in any intellectual property dispute.


  • Typesetting
  1. When the papers for the special issue are accepted by the final review process, the papers are processed for typesetting and all the succeeding publication processes will be conducted by the publisher.
  2. The corresponding author of each paper will receive by email the proof of his/her paper to check. He/she must return the corrected proofs within seven days in order to avoid any delays in publishing the special issue. If the research society has not received a response by then, the research society will contact Guest Editors to help chase the author for a reply.

After having their corrections incorporated by the typesetter, the proofs will again be sent to authors to check and to ensure that all their corrections are included. It is the responsibility of authors to check and correct the proofs of their papers. Papers cannot be published until they are checked and approved by authors. And papers cannot be amended once they are published, except in very exceptional circumstances, so authors should take great care in approving the final version for publication.
