Submission Guidelines

Guidelines for authors: Submitted articles must be original, not published partially or completely in another paper-based or online academic journal. Responsibility for the originality and contents of published papers rests totally upon the authors.
All papers are assessed based on an evaluation grid set designed by the reviewers.
Articles submitted after the deadline will not be published in the issue to be printed in December 2020. Authors are notified of the receipt of their article in 10 working days. Reviewers will highlight all the corrections in red. In the article’s revised version the reviewers’ comments will be deleted.
If the researcher does not want to make all the required changes, the article will not be accepted for publication. The same rule applies both to the external collaborators and to the editorial board.
