In general, a manuscript submitted to our journal will go through the double-blind peer review process as follows:

1. Appraisal by the Editor-in-Chief (EIC)

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.

3. Response to Invitations

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.

4. Review is Conducted

Two reviewers of the same expertise conduct their review on the manuscript.

5. Journal Evaluates the Reviews

Once the reviewers complete their review and send the results to the chief editor, the chief editor evaluates the results of the review.

6. The Decision is Communicated

The chief editor sends a decision email to the author notifying about the decision for their manuscript, including any relevant comments from the reviewers for revisions. The comments are anonymous

7. Author's Revision

If accepted, the manuscript is sent to copyeditor. If the manuscript is rejected, it will be archived. If the manuscript is sent back for either major or minor revision, the chief editor will include constructive comments from the reviewers to help the author improve his/her manuscript.


The reviewers also receive an email letting them know the outcome of their review on the manuscript. If the paper is sent back for revision, the reviewers should expect to receive a new version, unless they have opted out of further participation.


When only minor changes are requested from the author, this follow-up review is taken care of by the chief editor.
