Authors are asked to submit two versions of the article: a full version, and an anonymized version.

The article must include an abstract, the format of which is free. The standard format for an article is 20,000 to 40,000 characters. The journal does not impose a limit on the size of submissions but will apply stricter criteria to longer submissions.

If so, it will then be sent to reviewers. Authors are asked to wait a minimum of one month to be informed of the outcome of the first reading, and six months for the review process itself.
