Guest Editor

The guest editor holds a crucial role in ensuring the intellectual integrity of manuscripts and their subsequent publication. This involves soliciting articles from authors, conducting thorough reviews, collaborating with authors and editorial assistants for necessary revisions, and coordinating the peer-review process to guarantee fairness and timeliness. Selected papers must meet high scientific standards and align with the Journal's thematic focus. Expertise in the field is a prerequisite for guest editors involved in article selection and review. Addressing potential biases or conflicts of interest is paramount, with at least two external reviewers, along with input from the guest editor and editor-in-chief. Adherence to best practices, as guided by the publisher, is essential to prevent the selection of fraudulent peer reviewers. All communications within the Journal should be managed through the electronic submission system, ensuring the protection and confidentiality of submitted materials.
