Submit to Vol. VIII


We are in the process of publishing Edition 7. Authors of the selected journal articles have been contacted.

Why Submit?

Having your paper published in the journal has multiple benefits. It acts as both a valuable resume-builder and a way to differentiate yourself from applicants in your field. More importantly, the process allows you to share your research internationally and it provides an opportunity to have your work peer-reviewed.
