Ethics and Responsibilities of authors

All submitted manuscripts should be original and should not be considered by any other scientific journal for publication at the same time. No part of the accepted manuscript should be duplicated in any other scientific journal without the permission of the Editorial Board.Authors should comply with the ethical standards of an author’s institution and institutional or national guidelines.For the policies on research and publication ethics that are not stated in these instruction, the statement of ethics & responsibilities in the publication of research(http:// can be applied to “Guidelines on Research Ethics” from National Research Foundation of Korea and Korean Federation of Science and Technology Societies.

Editorial and Peer Review Process

The editor selects peer reviewers by the recommendation of the Editorial Board members or from the special database owned by the Editorial Board. Acceptance of the manuscript is decided based on the critiques and recommended decision of the reviewers. A reviewer’s decision is made as “Accept”, “Minor Revision”, “Major Revision” and “Reject.” If there is a marked discrepancy in the decisions between the reviewers and an author after the examination by three reviewers, the Editor may send the manuscript to another reviewer for additional comments and recommended decision. Two repeated decisions of ‘Review after revision’ are regarded as “Rejection.” A final decision on acceptance or rejection for publication is forwarded to the corresponding author from the Editorial Office.
The peer review process takes usually two to three months after the manuscript submission. Failure to resubmit the revised manuscript within six months is regarded as a withdrawal. Revisions are usually requested to take account of criticism and comments made by reviewers. Alterations by the corresponding author must have been made in response to the reviewer’s comments point to point. (Alterations of the corresponding author to the reviewer’s comments must have been responded to point to point.)
Acceptable reasons should be given for noncompliance with any recommendation of the reviewers.
