What is e-Version FirstTM

e-Version First is a feature offered through our journal platform. It allows PDF versions of manuscripts that have been peer reviewed and accepted, to be hosted online prior to their inclusion in a final printed journal. Readers can freely access or cite the article. We aim to publish accepted manuscripts in e-Version First two week after the final draft has been completed.


Paper Selection and Publication Process

a) Upon receipt of paper submission, the Editor sends an E-mail of confirmation to the corresponding author within 1-3 working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission/e-mail may be missed. Please contact the Editor in time for that.

b) Peer review. We use double-blind system for peer-review; both reviewers' and authors' identities remain anonymous. The paper will be peer-reviewed by three experts; two external reviewers and one editor from the journal are typically involved in reviewing a submission. The review process normally takes 2-4 weeks.

c) Notification of the result of review by E-mail.

d) The authors revise paper and pay publication fee (300.00 USD).

e) After publication, the corresponding author will receive the copy of printed journal, free of charge.

f) E-journal in PDF is available on the journal’s webpage, free of charge for download.


The publisher and journal have a policy of “Zero Tolerance on Plagiarism”. We check the plagiarism issue through two methods: reviewer check and plagiarism prevention tool (

All submissions will be checked by iThenticate before being sent to reviewers.
