Having received the manuscript, an Acknowledgement Letter is sent to the corresponding author, including the manuscript number to be used for further communications. One of the editors assigns manuscripts to experts (two reviewers). Authors are encouraged to give names and addresses of persons outside their own institutions who might be considered as reviewers for their manuscript. Authors can also request to exclude particular reviewers. The review process is intended to be finished within 30 days. Four levels of evaluation are used for manuscripts: accepted; acceptable with minor revision; acceptable with major revision; rejected.

Revised manuscripts should be submitted with one original and the electronic version, including figures, within 3 months (otherwise the manuscript will be treated as a new submission). Revised manuscripts must be accompanied by a letter in which the authors respond to each issue raised by the reviewers (either indicating revision or responding to the reviewers' comments). Changes should be marked on one copy in red ink.

It is encouraged to submit the manuscripts in electronic format (on CD or by E-mail). Text and table(s) must be in MSWord. Electronic illustration (computer-generated figures) is also required (in MS.ppt or in common graphic format using high resolution). Submit illustrations in separate file(s). Preferred graphic softwares are: Adobe Illustrator; Aldus Freehand. To avoid heterogeneity, the preferred character font is Times. On the CD, indicate the title and authors as well as the operating system and word processing program need to generate the file. (The file name is the last name of the first author, followed by a period plus the three letter extension, POR). It is essential that CD(s) be accompanied by hard copy printout. The CD and the paper copy must be identical.
