The editorial board consulted the committee and reviewers to ensure that the journal's content was of the highest quality. The reviewers, composed of prominent scientists from different countries, were chosen to represent a wide range of disciplines and areas of expertise. They provided valuable feedback on submitted manuscripts, helping to ensure that only the most relevant and accurate information was published.

The journal's editorial board welcomes original papers in English, and all submitted articles are checked for plagiarism using anti-plagiarism software (i.e., Turnitin).

Peer Review Process

The journal's editorial board is devoted to doing timely, high-caliber scientific research. All contributions go through a thorough screening procedure in order to maintain a high-quality publication. The peer review procedure has the following qualities:

  • The peer review technique for papers used in journals is double-blind.

  • All papers submitted will have their originality checked using a third-party plagiarism detection tool (such as Turnitin, etc.).

  • It is not acceptable to submit the same work simultaneously to multiple publications.

  • Inappropriate content in a manuscript will not be taken into consideration for evaluation.

  • Our peer-reviewing procedure is private, and the reviewers' identities are kept a secret.

  • Every manuscript that is submitted is regarded as a confidential document. We anticipate that the articles will be treated as secret information by our Board of Reviewing Editors, Associate Editors, and reviewers as well.

  • To confirm the originality of papers that have been accepted with revisions, a second plagiarism check may be necessary.
