Guest Editors


Guest editors play a vital role in acquiring content and leading the review process for special issue publications. The AOCV welcome you as a guest editor in two ways:

1.                  AOCV invite you as an expert in your specific field of research.

2.                  You can submit a resume and a proposal for a special issue to a journal the senior editor will approve or reject it after consulting with the editorial board.

A special issue focuses on a specific area of research that has a broad appeal and falls within the aims and scopes of the journal. It also provides an excellent opportunity to review a particular theme, examine previously unaddressed aspects, propose and develop new approaches, exchange perspectives and encourage new lines of research. The key benefits of special issue are: Increased distribution to a wider audience, Additional content for subscribers, Available electronic format, and Increased citations. Meanwhile, it should be noted that AOCV uses an online submission and review system. The submission and peer review of special issue papers must be managed using this system.
