• Referees invited for article evaluation are expected to submit their acceptance or rejection decisions within 15 calendar days. The referee who does not report any decisions at the end of this period is deemed to have rejected the evaluation and the editor may appoint a new referee or send a reminder to the referee.

• The referees who accept the evaluation are expected to express their opinions within 30 (thirty) calendar days from the date of acceptance of the invitation.

• The names of the referees invited for evaluation are not reported to the authors (Single-Blind Peer Review).

• Referees who want to see the corrected article again as a result of their suggestions are expected to respond to the authors' feedback within 15 (fifteen) calendar days. During this period, it is assumed that the referees who do not express comments express a positive opinion.
• All users who referee are deemed to have agreed to act according to the Code of Ethics of our journal.
