    It is our goal to include authors from as many countries as possible. We encourage both scholars and practitioners to submit articles containing research related to their practices. We ask our editors to adopt a mentoring approach which assists authors to get submissions ready for publication. Our goal is to build a reputation for working with authors and supporting their writing skills. The review process for a typical article could take 4 months and some take longer.
