Please remember that we are a peer-reviewed journal. At times, this can slow down the “decision making” process, as we must hear back from our experts in the field before we can advise the author of acceptance, rejection, or acceptance upon revision of his or her article. Not only is peer review an important aspect of academic integrity in publishing, but it is also a sine qua non for a multi-disciplinary journal such as ours.
All our texts are printed in English. Unfortunately, we are not in the position to pay authors for their work; we do not translate in-house, and we are unable to subside translation costs. All costs of translation into English are borne by the author.
