Peer-review Process 

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

  2. The editor will initially assess all contributions for suitability for the journal.

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

  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 the acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.

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