Peer Review Process

The articles submitted are assessed initially by the Joint Editors and a primary decision made regarding further processing.

Once such a decision is made, the article would be reviewed anonymously in a double blind fashion by two reviewers from the Editorial Board and an External Reviewer from the Panel of Reviewers.

When deemed necessary, the article would be sent to a separate Specialist Reviewer.

If and when there is no agreement among the reviewers, the manuscript would be sent to another independent reviewer. 

The reviewers' comments and recommendations are discussed at the monthly Editorial Board Meetings. The final decision regarding acceptance rests with the two Joint Editors.

For a complete description of the processes involved, please refer to the Journal Policies on Publication Ethics and Malpractices under the Research Integrity Section.
