This journal uses double-blind review, which means that throughout the review process, both the reviewer and author identities are kept a secret from the reviewers, and vice versa.
Only manuscripts that have been approved by all authors and have never been published in or sent to another journal are accepted for review. iThenticate software is used to scan submitted publications for plagiarism if they pass preliminary control. iThenticate is a system that tests the originality of the submitted material and helps detect plagiarism. The eligible ones are evaluated by the editor-in-chief for originality, methodology, the importance of the subject covered, and compliance with the journal scope after they have been checked for plagiarism. The manuscripts that are chosen are sent to at least two referees for review.
