2. Appropriateness and creativity of research methods
3. Effective communication of the research report
Evaluation Process of Articles
1. Only drafts that meet KASBA's contribution guidelines are reviewed. Therefore, if a draft does not meet the contribution guidelines, the editor in chief can request an improved draft from the contributor.
