Submitted manuscripts are reviewed for originality, significance, adequacy of documentation, reader interest and composition. Manuscript not submitted according to instructions will be returned to the author for correction prior to the beginning the peer review. The review process is double blind. The Editor chooses two reviewers, who remain anonymous. Reviewers provide comments for the editor and for the authors. Revised manuscripts are judged on the adequacy of responses to suggestions and criticisms made during the initial review. The peer-review process takes about 2 months to complete.
Judgments of the reviewer should be objective and should have no conflict of interest with respect to the research, the authors and/or the research funders. Whenever possible, reviewers should point out relevant published work which is not yet cited. Reviewed articles should be treated confidentially.
After reviewing, all accepted manuscripts are subject to editing for scientific accuracy and clarity by the office of the Editor.
