Guidelines for the Editorial board
The Editorial board plays a key role in defining the compass and direction of a journal. The aims and goals of a journal depend as much on board members' experience and expertise as they do on the content it publishes. Hence, it is significant that a proper team structure is set in place to match the journal's vision and mission. Decisions made by the board to accept or reject a manuscript should be based on the reviewers' recommendation and the paper's clarity, novelty, and relevance to the journal. No decision is permitted to be subjective by the race, religion, nationality, sex, or sexual point of reference of the author or any additional aspect not linked to the merit of the manuscript.
