Submission of articles

Complete articles (text, tables and figures) must be submitted electronically as email attachments form to Editor-in-chief or deputy editor in accordance with the Guidelinesd for authors. For initial consideration a single pdf file is preferred. 

On receipt of submissions, authors will receive a letter acknowledging receipt and outlining the review process (see below) and the terms and conditions under which articles are accepted for publication.

Review process

After submission an article is reviewed as follows.
If the article is not declined immediately, the Executive editors (editor-in-chief or deputy-editor) and Editorial board assess the article and decide whether it should be declined or sent to specialist referees who are asked to return their comments within one month using a standard review form.

Revised and Final Versions of the Manuscript

When submitting a revised manuscript, please include your responses to the reviewers’ comments as part of the cover letter file. When submitting a revised manuscript with figures, include all figures, even if they have not changed since the previous version.
The final version of your manuscript must be submitted in Word (.doc) because your keystrokes will be used in copyediting and typesetting; a PDF does not contain usable character data and is thus not adequate. To ensure that special characters are typeset correctly, it is helpful if you also submit your own PDF of the final version manuscript, in addition to the Word file.
