Submission

The journal will gradually develop the system for the online submission of a manuscript. Kindly submit a complete blinded paper in MS Word file here. The blinded manuscript must contain the title, abstract, and main text. No affiliation should be entered in the blinded manuscript. The title page will include only the title and affiliations of all the authors.

Figures should be sent as a separate file (doc/jpeg). Tables should be inserted in the text just after when it is mentioned in the manuscript. Make a zip folder of all the files and upload the zip file only. After acceptance, the corresponding author will be asked to submit a signed copyright transfer form.
