I copied the questions here and my comments are between lines: Survey Question from ACSE to follow up the case: What sort of difficulties you face while finalizing the Journal’s Policies? It is difficult to make the policy unique because most of the high-quality journal have almost the same policies but they were written in a different way. Do you think a well-documented template will serve the community journals? Especially the Asian regions? Always, well-documented template helps the community as it make it easy to allow for the researcher to follow the template. Which segment is the most confusing for… Read more »
