Peer Review Process

Manuscripts are submitted to the Editor-in-chief through e-mail. The Editor-in-chief assigns the manuscript to Associate Editors. The Associate Editors perform preliminary screening and sends to three anonymous reviewers. Reviewers will be given one month for review if they do not respond in one month a reminder is sent to them. If they do not reply, the manuscript is sent to another reviewer.  The reviewers send their comments to the Editor-in-chief who will eventually send them to the authors. Authors will be given up to one month to incorporate their comments and send the revised manuscript to the Editor-in-chief. If a manuscript returned to an author for revision is not returned within two months it will be considered rejected. The Editor-in-chief sends the revised manuscript to the Associate Editors, who will eventually check if the comments are incorporated or not.  Then if comments are incorporated the Associate Editor sends the manuscript to the Editor-in-chief. 

If the two reviewers recommend acceptance, the paper is accepted directly. If only one reviewer accept the manuscript, it will be sent to another reviewer. If the reviewers recommend a manuscript for publication without change and the Associate Editor agrees, the manuscript and the reviewer report are sent to the Editor-in chief for decision. Decision shall be made in meeting of the editorial Board. The author of an accepted manuscript will be notified by the Editorial Assistant.
