"The kind effort by Geng-Long Liu of the editorial office for helping us in the various processes of publication is greatly acknowledged. One point for possible improvement is on the “English Language Certificate” for non-English speaking authors. It is helpful if it is also acceptable to send the proofread manuscript with comments by proofreader instead of “English Language Certificate”. In this case, the language editor of WJGP can easily check how the original English is correctly revised by the proofreader."
