Peer Review

The Journal uses a double-blind system for peer reviews. The submitted manuscript is given a number and the identity of the authors removed from it. The paper, evaluation form and reviewer guide will then be sent for peer-review to at least two experts. The review process may take up to 5 weeks. Based on the reviewers comments, the editor in chief will inform the corresponding author of the final decision. The final decision on whether a manuscript is to be accepted for publication is taken by the editor in chief in consultation with the subject editor. This is based solely on the reviewer comments on the evaluation form. The reviewers comments on the manuscript and the evaluation forms are also sent to the corresponding author whether the manuscript is accepted or not. Accepted manuscripts are revised by the authors and sent back to the editor in chief.
