In any case, the author may question the editorial decision and communicate with the editorial team to receive the appropriate clarifications. It is the intention of the editorial committee to motivate the editorial decision and guide the author in the opportunity of his research.

A first editorial decision (acceptance or rejection) will be made in the first 3 months, and final acceptance will be made between 6-8 months after receipt. Always depending on the volume of submissions that is managed at any time.
