Manuscripts that conform to the journal style will be reviewed by peers.

The final decision on accepting a manuscript is made entirely by the editor based on the reviewers' comments.



Plagiarism and self-plagiarism are not allowed. The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. An author also should not, in general, publish manuscripts describing essentially the same research in more than one journal or primary publication. Submitting the same manuscript to more than one journal concurrently constitutes unethical publishing behaviour and is unacceptable. It is also emphasized that proper acknowledgment of the work of others must always be given. Authors should cite publications that have been influential in determining the nature of the reported work.
