Peer Review Process

The editorial team carefully reads each manuscript that is submitted before submission. The work is evaluated mostly based on its general interest or scope (if it is appropriate for the journal), its writing style (whether the author followed the instructions supplied), and its ability to pass a plagiarism check. Only manuscripts that satisfy editorial standards are submitted for official peer review. The editors swiftly reject submissions they deem to be of insufficient quality without seeking external evaluation.

Manuscripts that are deemed appropriate for additional assessment are normally sent to two reviewers. The editors then decide based on the recommendations of the reviewers:

  • Accept, with or without small revisions
  • Accept with the suggested major revisions,
  • Reject, or the authors suggested further addiitonal works for resubmisison
