Peer Review Process

The review process will follow the following steps:
  1. The manuscript is first evaluated by the EIC and can be declined if it lacks strong scientific merit and does not fit into the journal's scope. 
  2. EIC will assign a handling Editor to further examine the manuscript for any indications of plagiarism and study misconduct.
  3. The manuscript will be sent by the Editor to at least two independent reviewers. The review will be conducted in the Double-Blind Review process.
  4. The Editor will decide to accept, accept with revisions, or reject the manuscript based on his/her expertise and recommendations from the reviewers.
The normal turnaround time for evaluation of the manuscript is 3 months from the date of receipt.
