General Instructions: Only electronic Word Manuscripts (.doc or .docx) can be submitted by the corresponding author(s) through the online submission or by mailing ([email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]; [email protected]). There is no page limit. The submitting author takes responsibility for the paper during submission and peer review. If for some technical reason submission through the online submission is not possible, the author can contact [email protected] for support.
Papers must be submitted on the understanding that they have not been published elsewhere and are not currently under consideration by any other publisher. The submitting author is responsible for ensuring that the article’s publication has been approved by all the other coauthors. Only an acknowledgment from the editorial office officially establishes the date of receipt. Further correspondence and proofs will be sent to the author(s) before publication unless otherwise indicated. All enquiries concerning the publication of accepted papers should be addressed to [email protected]
Paper Selection and Publication Process:
a) Upon receipt of a submission, the editor sends an e-mail of confirmation to the submission’s author within one to three working days. If you fail to receive this confirmation, your submission e-mail may have been missed.
b) Peer review: We use a double-blind system for peer review; both reviewers’ and author’s identities remain anonymous. The paper will be reviewed by at least two experts: one editorial staff member and at least one external reviewer. The review process may take two to four weeks.
c) Notification of the result of review is by e-mail.
d) If the submission is accepted, the authors revise accordingly and have to pay the Article Processing Charges.
e) A PDF and HTML versions of the journal is available for download on the journal’s webpage free of charge.
a) Language: Please write your text in proper English; American or British usage is accepted, but not a mixture of both. We only accept manuscripts written in English.
b) Length of Paper: Papers between 3 000 and 8 000 words are preferred.
c) Title Page: To ensure the integrity of the peer review process, every effort should be made to prevent the identities of the authors and reviewers from being known to each other. When you upload a submission file, author identities should be removed from it. You should upload the title page as a supplementary file for the editor to review.
d) Title: The title is often used in information-retrieval systems and should be no more than 12 words in length and not contain abbreviations or words that serve no purpose.
e) Authors’ Names and Affiliations:
Authors name should be as:

n) Figure Preparation: Upon submission of an article, authors are supposed to include all figures and tables in the PDF or doc file of the manuscript. Figures and tables should not be submitted in separate files. If the article is accepted, authors will be asked to provide the source files of the figures. Each figure should be supplied in a separate electronic file. All figures should be cited in the paper in a consecutive order. Figures should be supplied in either vector art formats (Illustrator, EPS, WMF, FreeHand, CorelDraw, PowerPoint, Excel, etc.) or bitmap formats (Photoshop, TIFF, GIF, JPEG, etc.). Bitmap images should be of 300 dpi resolution at least unless the resolution is intentionally set to a lower level for scientific reasons. If a bitmap image has labels, the image and labels should be embedded in separate layers.
o) Equations: The text size of equations should be similar to normal text size. The formula should be placed center justified with serial number on the right. For example:
p) Tables: Number tables consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a table’s caption above the table’s body and its description below the body. Avoid vertical rules. Be sparing in the use of tables and ensure that the data presented in tables do not duplicate results described elsewhere in the article.
Table 1: Estimated Distance (cm) for Letter and Digit Stimuli.
Note. CI=confidence; LL=lower limit, UL=upper limit.
You may resize the tables to fit the page size.
q) Figures and Schemes: Number figures consecutively in accordance with their appearance in the text. Place a figure’s caption and description below the figure body. A minimum resolution of 300 DPI is required. You may resize the figures or schemes to fit the page size.
Figure 1: Figure Title
Note. Avoid abbreviating the titles of tables, figures, and equations (i.e., Tab. 1, Fig. 2, Eq. 3) in the caption or in running text. Do not write “the table above/below” or “the figure on page 32,” because the position and page number of a table or figure cannot be determined until the pages are typeset.
