Peer Review Process
All submissions to the journal are initially reviewed by the editorial board. Manuscripts may be rejected without peer review at this stage if their contents are deemed irrelevant to the scope of the journal or do not meet the standards set by the journal. Manuscripts that are not rejected during the initial review process are sent out to reviewers. The journal adopts a double-blinded review process. Manuscripts are sent to two external reviewers. A third peer reviewer is solicited in the case of a divided decision among the two initial reviewers. The editorial board makes all final decisions regarding manuscripts’ suitability for publication based on reviewers’ comments.
This journal publishes one volume annually in June.
