The manuscript will be reviewed by a minimum of two independent reviewers. After that, the decision will make by the editor.

  1. Quotes of others (by quoting indirectly) should be well paraphrased by using one’s own words instead of performing copy and paste or typing the source word-by-word. Write down the reading sources according to the rules of scientific writing.
  2. Writing of the direct quotation by quoting the same words as the original copies should apply quotation marks (for writing that less than 40 words), or if the quote consists of over 40 words, paragraphs should be notched, and a different font size applied.
