Reviewers evaluate the suitability of the manuscript and state justification for publication. The language of JOURNAL  publications is English. The manuscript must be understandable and correct in spelling, grammar, and punctuation. 


Manuscripts that do not meet the formatting requirements (1 to 4) or the appropriate manuscript structure cannot be sent out for peer review and will be sent back to the contact author for formatting concerns.
