Peer Review Process
The journal implements a rigorous independent peer review process for all submitted manuscripts. All submissions will be screened by the chief editor for suitability for the journal. Manuscripts that meet the journal requirements in term of scientific and ethical standards will be then assigned to an editor. The assigned editor will invite expert reviewers to review the manuscript. A minimum of two independent reviews are necessary to have a final decision on a manuscript. The assigned Editor will then recommend to the chief editor to accept, reject or ask for revision of the manuscript based on the reviewers’ reports. The chief editor will have the final decision to be communicated to the authors. Manuscripts that are accepted then will progress to the editorial process and publication. The manuscripts that undergo reviews take around 16 weeks for the first decision. The accepted articles will take around 16 weeks after the final decision to be published on the journal website.
