All submitted manuscripts undergo an initial careful examination by the Editorial Executive Committee to ensure authors’ submissions conform to best practice. Qualifying scholarly research-based articles are blindly reviewed by at least two peer reviewers, who would typically be members of the International Editorial Board of the Journal. Peer reviewers have proven scholarly and/or professional expertise in the subject matter of a manuscript. Reviewer reports are assessed by the Editorial Executive Committee and form the basis of any decision by the Committee on how to proceed with a manuscript.
