Disclaimer on Template Change and Manuscript Adjustments

Please be advised that the ECECSR Journal has recently transitioned its manuscript template from American English to British English standards to better align with our editorial preferences and audience expectations. As a result of this change, manuscripts previously prepared under the American English template have undergone minor grammatical adjustments to ensure consistency with British English conventions.

These adjustments primarily pertain to spelling, punctuation, and certain grammatical structures, with the intent to maintain the original meaning and scientific integrity of each manuscript. Authors whose manuscripts have been affected by these changes have been notified, and we have endeavored to make these transitions as seamless as possible.

We appreciate the understanding and cooperation of our authors and readers during this transition period. Our commitment to publishing high-quality scientific research remains our top priority, and we believe these template adjustments will further enhance the clarity and readability of articles published in the ECECSR Journal.
