About the process
• The editorial process will be done in the original language and on the basis of the original journal up to the point of acceptance.
• Once accepted it will be offered to enter the translation and production process of the parallel journal. This option will be announced from the beginning but this step would be offered once the manuscript is accepted.
• Authors will decide whether publishing the translation or not. Accepting means agree with the rules and policies of both journals.
• Authors will transfer the translated articles themselves.
• The manuscript’s content will automatically be accepted to be published in the second journal.
• The translated manuscript will be transferred to the second journal and there edited and reviewed using the usual tools of this journal. The writing will be reviewed again and a linguistic check will always be made.
