Peer Review Process

Submitted papers are read by Editors and decision is made whether they qualify for further review. Manuscripts not qualifying are rejected right away and authors are informed of the decision. Qualifying manuscripts are sent to two independent reviewers whose comments are returned within to months. Reviewers’ comments are summarized by the editorial board and sent to the corresponding authors for revision of the manuscripts. Subsequently, the revised manuscripts are returned to the Editor who goes through them before sending them to reviewers for cross checking as to whether the suggested corrections have been incorporated. The reviewers will then send to the Editor their comments and final decision on the fate of the manuscript within two weeks. A final decision is reached by the editorial board and a member of the Editorial Advisory Board specialized in the respective field of the study.
