An initial decision will normally be made within 3 weeks of receipt of a manuscript, and the reviewers’ comments are sent to the corresponding author by e-mail. The corresponding author must indicate the alterations that have been made in response to the reviewers’ comments item by item. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscripts within eight weeks is regarded as withdrawal from the publication by author(s). If further revision period is required, author should contact editorial office.
