Guest Editor

The guest editor holds a crucial role in ensuring the intellectual integrity of manuscripts and their publication. Responsibilities include soliciting articles from authors, overseeing the review process, collaborating with authors and editorial assistants for revisions, and managing the overall review arrangement. It is their duty to uphold fairness and timeliness in the peer-review process, emphasizing scientific quality and alignment with the journal's domain. Guest editors, who are experts in the field, select reviewers, evaluate potential conflicts of interest, and may engage at least two external reviewers. To prevent fraudulent peer reviews, guest editors adhere to best practices provided by the publisher. Utilizing the electronic submission system for all journal communications, the guest editor safeguards submitted materials, ensuring their confidentiality.
