Articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. Revised articles can be sent through Online Submission Interface. The revised articles returned later than three months will be considered new submissions.

Withdrawal of Articles

The authors are not allowed to withdraw submitted articles in the process of reviewing, because the withdrawal is a waste of valuable resources that editors and reviewers spent a great deal of time processing submitted manuscripts. The withdrawal can be direct requests or without confirmation in which the authors do not send their revised articles. For this circumstance, the authors and their affiliations will be blacklisted for publication in this journal.
