Guide for Authors


The publication of articles plays a fundamental role in the development of a coherent network of knowledge. For this reason it is essential that all publishers, editors, authors, and reviewers, in the process of publishing in a peer-reviewed journal conduct themselves according to the highest level of professional ethics and standards.

Publishing Ethics


The journal employs a ''double blind'' review process. In this process information which identifies the authors is removed from the paper. The paper is sent to at least two reviewers who are academic referees and subject area specialists. Reviewers do not know whose manuscripts they are reviewing, and the authors do not know who the reviewers of their manuscripts are.


The articles will be published when the issue is concluded. This periodicity in publication occurs each quarter of the year.


This journal provides immediate open access to its content on the principle that making research freely available to the public supports a greater global exchange of knowledge.
