Peer Review Process

Manuscript will be reviewed anonymously by at least two assessors. However, the final decision to accept or reject any manuscript will be made by the Editor-in-chief.

After an article is received, it is documented in the manuscript monitoring form and then sent to two competent reviewers. The reviewers fill a check list of enquiries as it relates to the manuscript and also make free comments and corrections in the hard copy. If two reviewers reject it, it is turned down. However, if one of the reviewers advise that it be approved subject to major modification and the other reject, the editor in chief uses his expertise to either reject or accept subject to major modification
