Submission for Review:

Unpublished papers and extended versions of papers presented at conferences may be submitted for possible publication (extended version should not exceed 25% of similarity respect to the original version). Responsibility for the content of a paper lays on the Authors and not on the Editors or the Publisher. Surveys or tutorial papers are particularly welcome.
Articles submitted to the Review should be original contributions and should not be under consideration for any other publication at the same time. Authors who submit articles for publication have to warrant that their work does not infringe any existing copyright and they have to indemnify the publisher against any breach of such warranty.
The submitting author is responsible for obtaining agreement of all coauthors as well as any sponsors' required consent before submitting a paper. We strongly discourages courtesy authorship.

Authors are obliged to cite relevant prior work and they should consider the following points:

1) Technical papers submitted for publication must advance the state of knowledge and must cite relevant prior work.
2) The length of a submitted paper should suit its importance, or it should be appropriate to the complexity of the work.
3) Authors must convince both peer reviewers and the editors about the scientific and technical merit of a paper; knowing that, the standards of proof are higher when extraordinary or unexpected results are reported.
4) As any scientific progress requires replication, papers submitted for publication must provide sufficient information to allow readers to perform similar experiments or calculations and as well as to use the reported results. Although not everything is needed to be disclosed, a paper must contain new, useable, and fully described information.
5) Unintelligible English is a valid reason for rejection.
6) Please be aware that all submissions to Praise Worthy Prize Journals will now go through Ithenticate’s CrossCheck software, which is a multi-publisher initiative to screen published and submitted content for originality. We use CrossCheck to detect instances of overlapping and similar text in submitted manuscripts. Click here to find out more about CrossCheck for Researchers.

Every paper and contribution will become the legal copyright of the publisher unless it is otherwise agreed, in order to have an easily dissemination and to ensure proper policing of use.
