Section Collection Policy

The journal runs a Section Collection program, and a section collection is a research collection of some particular fields. Scholars in this section field will act as Guest Editors and drive this section. Guest Editors should try their best to call for excellent submissions for the section. Outstanding publications accepted after peer review will be included in regular issues if their subject is consistent well with the journal’s scope. 

Scholars could submit proposals on a section collection, and Editor-in-Chief or senior editors will evaluate its scope and interest. Note that a hot area may a good proposal for more attraction and visibility. Editorial Office also rises some proposals, and invite scholars in the section discipline to be Guest Editors.

All the submissions will be processed according to the Peer Review Process of the journal. Guest Editors could not act as reviewers at any stage, and Editor-in-Chief takes charge of all the editorial process for objectivity and fairness.
