Peer Review Process

This journal uses a double-blind review, which means that both the reviewer and author identities are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa, throughout the review process. To facilitate this, authors need to ensure that their manuscripts are prepared in a way that does not give away their identity. Every submitted article is independently reviewed by at least two peer-reviewer. The decision for publication, revision, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendations. After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decisions based on reviewers’ recommendations:

Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. It will require a second round of review, however.
Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.
