Proofreading and language revision
As an open access journal we do not have the resources to provide copy-editing and language revisions for manuscripts and articles. Authors are therefore required to ensure the quality of the language in their article/manuscript. We encourage authors to have either a native English speaker proofreading the article or that authors (at their own expense) consult a professional proofreading and language revision service.
