Submission Preparation ChecklistAs part of the submission process, authors are required to check off their submission's compliance with all of the following items, and submissions may be returned to authors that do not adhere to these guidelines.
- The manuscript represents original work; it has not been published or is not under consideration for publication elsewhere.
- All authors have seen and approved the manuscript being submitted. Common agreement has been reached before submission. The corresponding author is responsible for the submission, on behalf of all co-authors. No additional authors might be added post submission, unless editors receive detailed explanation.
- Two submission files are prepared for upload: the manuscript (in Microsoft Word file format) and a cover letter (where three preferred reviewers are listed, with contact information).
- The text is written in comprehensible English and adheres to the stylistic and bibliographic requirements outlined in the Author Guidelines.
- Where available, URLs for the references have been provided.
