About the Journal

All articles shall be critically blind reviewed by at least two independent referees after passing preliminary review by the editors. No reviewer is required to review more than two papers per issue. Reviewers are requested to mentor authors by providing feedback on how to improve the submission and to determine whether or not a paper is fit for publication. Reviewers are provided with reviewer guidelines which must be strictly adhered to.
