Peer Review

The journal uses blind peer-review and manuscripts should be anonymized for this purpose. Authors should submit the full manuscript devoid of authors names, institutional affiliations and acknowledgement. There should also be no headers or footers. This document should be uploaded as the Main document/file.

A second file containing Title, author information and affiliation, running and conflict of interest statement title should be uploaded as Supplementary file.

Manuscripts that do not conform to the requirements of this journal shall be returned to the author(s) within two weeks from the date of submission. Returned manuscripts may be accepted for consideration if they are modified to an acceptable form.

Manuscripts are subject to peer-review and/or editorial revision to clarify them. As a general rule each submission is sent to two experts in the subject area of the manuscript for peer review. Additional reviewers may be used if the peer review decisions are not in agreement. Manuscripts may also be sent to statisticians for the review of that aspect of the study. The Editor-in-Chief makes the final decision on all manuscripts guided by the peer reviewers and the Editors. Where authors disagree with a review decision the Editor-in-Chief will have the decisions reviewed by another expert. The Editor-in-Chef makes the final decision.
