Peer Review Process

Review Process

All submissions are evaluated by a double-blind, peer-review process. Prior to dissemination
to the reviewers, the Editor will conduct a preliminary appraisal for content, substance, and
appropriateness to the journal. Review is carried out by two reviewers from different
affiliates. If the manuscript is clearly inappropriate, the author will be informed and the
manuscript returned. Appropriate manuscripts will be sent to two reviewers for blind
evaluation. Although there is an attempt to match manuscripts and reviewers according to
content, interests, and topical relevance, the broad focus of the journal dictates that papers be
written for applicability to a wide audience. The Editor shall inform you of the results of the review as soon as possible, hopefully in 3 months. The final decision is taken by one of the senior editors based on the information gained through the peer review process.

  • Accepted as it is
  • Accepted with minor revision
