  • Review Papers - UPDATES 2021

    Scope of Review Papers Review Papers denote an authoritative, balance, and scholarly survey aimed at informing a broader readership of developments in a field in which there have been recent, important advances. The goal of a review article is to provide a comprehensive and objective critical assessment  of  previously  published  literature  on  a  given  topic  as  well  as  to  provide  an overview  of  the  current  literature  on  the  topic.  The  requirements  for  balance  need  not prevent authors from proposing specific viewpoints, but if there are controversies in the field, the author(s) must treat them in an even-handed way. 

    Language should be simple, novel concepts defined and specialist terminology explained.
