Authors should expect reviewers’ instructions on a submission within three months and resubmit their revised manuscript following the reviewers’ suggestions. Acceptance for publication of the revised manuscript is confirmed after the final checking by the Editorial Board Members. Additionally, the Editorial Board has the discretion to return a manuscript, even before sending it to the reviewers, in cases where a research manuscript is beyond the science field of the journal, or does not meet the submission requirements, or for any other reason.
