The author can also suggest the names of potential qualified reviewers, but it is up to the editor to accept recommendations. The final decision of the Editors will be notified to the author(s).

Intentionally falsifying information for suggested reviewers such as a false name or email address, will result in rejection of the manuscript.

(c) Plagiarism is the appropriation of another person's ideas, processes, results, or words without giving appropriate credit.

(d) Research misconduct does not include honest errors or differences of opinion.



Any form of plagiarism will not be tolerated. If serious evidence of plagiarism was detected by the editorial team or reviewers in any stage of the article process it be can lead to the rejection of the article.
