  • Publishing Decisions: Editors shall ensure that all manuscripts submitted for publication are subjected for reviewing by at least two reviewers who are experts in the field of manuscript. The editor-in-chief is responsible for determining which of the research papers will be published, after verifying their relevance to researchers and readers, and the comments of the reviewers.
