About the Journal
The production and dristribution of the journal is fully sponsored by the National Bioproducts Institute (NBI) of South Africa.
On receipt of a manuscript, the Editor-in-Chief (E-i-C) or the French editor makes a general appraisal to establish relevance of subject and compliance with contribution guidelines. The manuscript is then sent to two appropriate members of Editorial Committee for peer review. The reviewer is instructed to recommend either rejection or major or minor amendment or acceptance. E-i-C sends back manuscript to corresponding author with reviewers' suggestions. Upon resubmission, E-i-C confirms that amendments have been effected and decides that manuscript be accepted. If the two reviewers recommended rejection, the E-i-C rejects manuscript and informs author.
