Frequently Asked Questions
- Can I submit an abstract?
The journal publishes full research papers. So only full paper
submission should be considered for possible publication. Papers with
insufficient content may be rejected as well, make sure your paper is
sufficient enough to be published.
- Should I revise the paper as your journal
template before submission?
Yes. You’re supposed to format your paper first by following the
paper template before submission. If not, extra charges might be made
for formating paper.
- Does your journal provide English language
support? Will the editors help to revise the paper if my English writing
is not good enough?
Manuscripts that are accepted for publication will be checked by our
editors for spelling and formal style. This may not be sufficient if
English is not your native language and substantial editing would be
required. In that case, you may want to have your manuscript edited by a
native speaker prior to submission. A clear and concise language will
help editors and reviewers concentrate on the scientific content of your
paper and thus smooth the peer review process.
- What is the impact factor of your journal?
The journal impact factor (JIF) normally referred to is the
proprietary journal impact factor from Thomson Reuters calculated based
on the Web of Science (WOS) and published in the Journal Citation
Reports®(JCR). We call this the JCR®JIF. This
journal has no JCR®JIF, but an alternative Google-based
impact factor. Today Science is calculating its own Impact Factor by
applying Thomson Reuters'(TR) algorithm based on Google Scholar's
citation counts. The impact factor of this journal calculated as

This benefits the entire scientific community. Sometimes scientists find
the peer review process intimidating because it can lead to the
rejection of their manuscript. Keep in mind that revisions and
improvement are part of the publication process and actually help raise
the quality of your manuscript.
Peer review is an integral part of scientific publishing that confirms
the validity of the science reported. Peer reviewers are experts who
volunteer their time to help improve the journal manuscripts they
review-they offer authors free advice.
