Editing: We will proofread your article, and may edit it lightly before publication. If we feel that it needs a lot of work before it could be published, we’ll get back to you. If we feel that your article is not suitable for publication, we will let you know the reasons why.
Timing: the website group are busy volunteers so a response/uploading may not occur immediately.
Please note: these guidelines may be updated from time to time.
