Author Guidelines

Kindly be informed that due to the invasion of Ukraine by the Russian Federation the editors of our Journal have decided not to consider manuscripts submitted by scholars and scientists who work at Russian education and research institutions. The invasion violates international law, jeopardises world peace and human rights of the citizens of Ukraine. All scholars from the Russian Federation are no longer members of the Editorial and Advisory boards unless they personally and openly condemned the aggression of their country against Ukraine.

The Editorial board kindly invites authors to publish a scholarly paper or a review article in the journal. Please submit your manuscripts online.        

Your published articles will be in open access on the journal site: and be deposited both in the DOAJ archive and in the VNU Publishers repository:

All submitted scholarly paper(s) will be peer-reviewed and the editorial board will inform the author(s) about any decision (on peer-review policy see here:

At minimum, your article should report the content addressed by each item of the checklist. Meeting these basic reporting requirements will greatly improve the value of your review and may enhance its chances for eventual publication.
