Scope and policy
The works that do not adjust to these instructions will be sent back to the authors so that they might resolve the specified problems for a further approval. The fact of sending a certain work for its editorial review does not guarantee its inclusion in a journal edition. The author should deal with the comments and recommendations made by the publishing edition and the valuation of the adviser. For this purpose he or she has 15 days in order to guarantee its publication. Likewise he should revise the work very carefully in order to avoid being corrected by the adviser. After that time if the author has not sent the work with the corrections made, the work will be rejected by the Publishing Board. Later on, the author should correct the specified problems and present two copies of the article.
