The EIC checks the paper’s composition and arrangement against the journal’s Author Guidelines to make sure it includes the required sections and stylizations and is appropriate for the journal as well as sufficiently original and interesting. If not, the paper may be rejected without being reviewed any further.

2. Invitation to Reviewers

The chief editor sends invitations to two reviewers. The reviewers are selected based on their expertise in accordance with the topic of the manuscript.

Potential reviewers consider the invitation against their own expertise, conflicts of interest and availability. They then accept or decline. If possible, when declining, they might also suggest alternative reviewers.
