In obtaining publication for my article, I received excellent service from the EPOJ Editorial Office; it can only be described as exemplary. Every time there was any correspondence or a query, the Editorial Office assistants were helpful, polite, attentive and friendly. I also liked the procedure of EPOJ in obtaining opinions regarding the article; it was sent to three reviewers, anonymously, and their comments relayed (anonymously) to me, and when I had made corrections or incorporated those views, the process was repeated. I thought this was fair, even-handed and without bias. I would certainly recommend EPOJ to any colleagues or if I have another article I wish to have published. Thank you again EPOJ Editorial Office.

We really had a nice experience. The flexibility of submission of manuscripts via e-mail was very convenient especially from countries with poor internet service. The peer review process was speedy and efficient. The overall process from submission to decision is one of the fastest.
