Copy-editing

After abstract and manuscript peer review are complete, and editor's decision is submitted as "accepted", all articles go through a copy-editing process.

In the copy-editing, articles are checked and reviewed extensively for conformance to style and format. A limited check on readability, English language, and figure and table readability is undertaken. A sample of articles are checked for possible plagiarism.

If an article requires to be returned to the author, the copy-editors will do so. At that time, authors must respond to the copy-editor's comments within a limited time to ensure that production can be completed in time for publication.
