Author Guidelines

We are grateful to anyone who considers publishing a paper in our journal, and we encourage you to submit it, whether it meets the requirements of a call for papers or deals with a newsworthy topic that should not remain unnoticed by the academic community. Feel free to contact the editors at any time if you need further information.
