Peer Review Process

All submissions are initially assessed by the Editor-in-Chief or an Editor, who decides whether or not the article is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable for peer review are assigned to a member of the Editorial Board and at least one more independent expert, who assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology.

The journal operates a double-blind peer review process, meaning that authors and reviewers remain anonymous for the review process. The review period is expected to take around four to eight to twelve weeks, although this can vary depending on reviewer availability. Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports the Editor-in-chief or an Editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, who is supported by an expert Editorial Board and Advisory Board.
