  • They need to submit:
    • A PDF file or a Word file
    • An abstract and 5 keywords
    • An archive containing the original files (latex, figures, etc..)

Non-blind peer review process where each manuscript is reviewed by at least two referees. The review process can take up to 2 months, depending on the availability of reviewers.


Four decisions are available after a round of review:

  • Reject
  • Major revision (will undergo another round of review)
  • Minor revision (will be reviewed only by SAE and EIC)
  • Accept


  • Once the paper is accepted for publication in the system, the authors will have to sign the copyright electronically.
  • Finally Production will contact authors to proof read the article before publication.
