The editors evaluate manuscripts for intellectual content without regard to race, gender, sexual orientation, religious belief, ethnic origin, citizenship, or political philosophy of the authors.

Duties of Reviewers
The journal uses double-blind review process. A peer review assists the editor-in-chief in making an editorial decision and editorial communications with the authors.

Any manuscript received for review must be treated as a confidential document.
Reviews should be conducted objectively. Personal criticism of the authors is inappropriate. Referees should express their views clearly with supporting arguments. Any statement that an observation, derivation, or argument had been previously reported should be accompanied by relevant citations. A reviewer should also call to the editor-in-chief's attention any substantial similarity or overlap between the manuscript under consideration and any other published paper of which he/she has personal knowledge. Unpublished materials disclosed in a submitted manuscript must not be used in a reviewers own research without an expressed written consent of the authors. Privileged information or ideas obtained through a peer review must be kept confidential and not utilized for personal advantages.

The authors should ensure that they have written entirely original works, and if the authors have used the work and/or words of others that this has been appropriately cited or quoted. Papers found with such problems are automatically rejected and authors are so advised.
When a paper is submitted for possible publication, the submitting author makes a written statement that the paper has not been published not it is currently under publication with any other journal. Simultaneous submission is considered unethical and is therefore unacceptable.
Proper acknowledgment of the work of others is required. Authors must cite publications that have led to the authors current research.
