Author Guidelines

  • Publishing Policies: All published articles are double-blind peer-reviewed by at least two reviewers selected from senior scientists. The reviewers should not have published with the author/editor or any of the co-authors of the article/book in the last five years and should not be currently working or collaborating with the institute of the author or any of the co-authors of the submitted manuscript. For the "Article" section only, which is subject to a Call for Papers, Double-Bind Peer Review is used.
  • Article-processing charges (APCs): Since the publication costs of the journal are borne by the sponsoring universities, authors do not incur any costs for submission (Article-Submission-Charges ASC) or publication of their articles (Article-Processing-Charges, APC). There are no grants for the publication of articles (waivers).
