Peer-review Process 

  1. The journal operates a single anonymized review process and the researcher is committed to taking the comments of the reviewers.

  2. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal.

  3. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper.

  4. The review period is three weeks and the reviewers are informed of that, after which the reviewer must respond either in acceptance, or acceptance of the condition of the modification, or rejection.

  5. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.

  6. Editors are not involved in decisions about papers which they have written themselves or have been written by family members or colleagues or which relate to products or services in which the editor has an interest. Any such submission is subject to all of the journal's usual procedures, with peer review handled independently of the relevant editor and their research groups.
