Manuscript Submission:

Your submission implies the work is original and unpublished elsewhere (excluding academic dissertations or theses by the same author), and not under consideration by other periodicals. An ethics declaration form, available on our website, must be signed upon submission.

We utilize Turnitin for conducting plagiarism checks, ensuring the originality of submitted manuscripts. Our standards dictate that the acceptable similarity limit is below 20%, with a stricter threshold of less than 5% when employing AI tools. Manuscripts falling below these benchmarks undergo thorough review to ascertain their originality and integrity. If AI has been incorporated as a component of the work, it should be acknowledged and referenced accordingly.


Submission Process:

Submissions should be carried out through our website from “Make a Submission” icon. You are required to submit two files: (i) The manuscript in Microsoft Word format that is laid out according to our Template; and (ii) Signed Declaration Form in JPG or PDF format. The forms can be found in our website. If you’ve had any problems with submission process, please contact the journal through:



Reference Format:

Please use IEEE style for your references. We highly recommend using reference management softwares (such as: Mendeley, EndNote, RefWorks) to avoid errors. Here are some examples for IEEE style:

Review Process

Once a manuscript passes the initial checks (plagiarism check and associate editor primary check), it will be assigned to at least two independent experts for peer-review. A single-blind review is applied, where authors' identities are known to reviewers. Peer review comments are confidential and will only be discussed with authors.

Reviewers may also include Editorial Board Members of the journal. Reviewers should not have published with any of the co-authors during the past five years and should not currently work or collaborate with any of the institutions of the co-authors of the submitted manuscript.
