Review Procedure

Once your manuscript has been assessed for suitability by the Editor in Chief and Section Editor, it will then be double blind peer reviewed by independent, anonymous expert referees. When a manuscript is received by the Editor he/she will have it reviewed by at least two peers qualified to evaluate the manuscript and he/she normally asks the reviewers to complete the review in 20 days. However, the reviewing process may take longer, depending on the length of the manuscript and reviewer's responses. The editor, if need, may send the manuscript to other reviewers for additional evaluations. After the peer-reviews, revision may be requested, or it may be decided to reject it by explaining the reasons. Revised articles are included in a new evaluation and peer-review process.
