Peer Review Process

A full double-blind refereeing process is applied in which papers are sent to 3-4 experts for their peer review. The opinions of up to three experts are sought to evaluate the manuscript fully with respect to its significance, relevance, quality, and clarity. On receipt of all reviewer comments, and potentially further consultation with Managing Editors, a decision is made by the Managing Editors and the Editor-in-Chief, who will send the decision to the corresponding author. The whole process may take 2-3 months.

Possible decisions include:

  • Accepted
  • Accepted with Minor Revision
  • Accepted with Major Revision
  • Rejected

For papers which require changes, the same reviewers will be used to ensure that the quality of the revised paper is acceptable.
