Manuscript upload takes place in 3 steps.
Each uploaded manuscript is undergone through a general check in terms of the paper’s suitability (such as the manuscript format and length) by the editorial assistant, and if:
i. Not all necessary files have been uploaded / there are missing files,
ii. The total similarity level determined by iThenticate software is over 25%,
iii. If there are major issues with regard to the required format of the submitted manuscript,
either revision and re-submission is requested from the author .
If the manuscript is complete and meets all the format requirements, it is then sent to the area editor. The area editor evaluates the scientific quality of the manuscript. If the manuscript is judged suitable for publication, it is then sent to three independent reviewers, whom are either proposed by the author or selected from the reviewer pool, for double-blind peer review process.
Each reviewer evaluates the manuscript and submits an evaluation form for reviewers including various comments. Based on the reviewer comments and the area editor's suggestion, the editor makes one of the following decisions on the manuscript: accept, request for revision or reject.
