Full papers should be between 5.000 and 8.000 words, including notes and references. A short paper of around 3.000 words can be also considered. An abstract of about 300 words with up to five keywords is mandatory with the submission.

A double blind peer review process, based on a distinguished board of editors and editorial advisors, will ensure the quality and high standards of research papers. Each paper will be assessed by two reviewers and any identifying information in relation to the author will be removed during the review process.
Reviewers follow an evaluation framework and recommendation guidelines to ensure objectivity and fairness.
Submitted articles should not have been previously published. If publication or dissemination through presentation has occurred, then the article should acknowledge this and pay due credit to the original source.
