Guest Editor

The guest editor assumes a crucial role in ensuring the intellectual integrity of manuscripts and publications. This encompasses tasks such as soliciting articles from authors, conducting reviews, collaborating with authors and editorial assistants for necessary revisions, and organizing the peer-review process. The guest editor plays a pivotal role in maintaining fairness and timeliness throughout the peer-review process, emphasizing scientific quality and alignment with the journal's domain. They must be experts in the field, diligently review potential conflicts of interest among reviewers, and engage at least two external reviewers, seeking input from both the guest editor and editor-in-chief. Adhering to best practices, the guest editor utilizes an electronic submission system for all journal communications, safeguarding the confidentiality of submitted materials.
