Peer Review

Successful manuscripts are then sent to a minimum of two independent assessors for peer review in a blinded manner. Two assessors’ reports must agree for the Board to make a decision concerning acceptance or rejection of a manuscript. The review process takes between 4 to 6 weeks for completion.
