After blind peer review, you will receive the notification letter with the review result of your paper. If your paper gets accepted, then you may have your paper published by following the instructions in the notification letter and paying the publication fee.
2.Can I submit an abstract?
The journal publishes full research papers. So only full paper submission should be considered for possible publication. Papers with insufficient content may be rejected as well, make sure your paper is sufficient enough to be published.
3. Should I revise the paper as your journal template before submission?
Yes. You’re supposed to format your paper first by following the template paper before submission. Submitted papers which are obviously not in accordance with the template of the journal will not be considered for possible publication.
4. Is there a submission deadline for the upcoming issue?
Technically, the submission deadline should be three months before the publishing date of the upcoming issue. And the accurate publishing date depends on the current publishing schedule and boils down to the time you have been waiting for.
5. Does your journal provide English language support? Will the editors help to revise the paper if my English writing is not good enough?
Manuscripts that are accepted for publication will be checked by our editors for spelling and formal style. This may not be sufficient if English is not your native language and substantial editing would be required. In that case, you may want to have your manuscript edited by a native speaker prior to submission. A clear and concise language will help editors and reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your paper and thus smooth the peer review process.
6. How long will the review process take?
The journal performs peer blind review, which also has an efficient peer review and production process to facilitate rapid publication. Normally, submitted manuscripts will be reviewed within two months of submission. You’ll be informed of the review result once the review process is over.
