Peer-review process is usually acknowledged as fundamental part of scientific publication. Upon submission, articles are reviewed by the editorial board members to make sure whether they fit within the aims and scope of the journal and are also checked for plagiarism. All proper submissions are then subject to a comprehensive double-blind peer review. We appreciate the time that referees devote to assessing the manuscripts we send them, which helps to ensure that righteous journals publish only material of the highest quality. Reviewers are selected based on their relevant expertise and publication history in the meticulous subject area. The journal has an wide-ranging team of editorial and advisory board members who have been selected to assist with peer review based on the aforesaid criteria. All significant information will be forwarded to the author(s). There are several types of decision possible for each article.
Accept manuscript without revision Accept after minor or major revision Submit elsewhere, if the manuscript is better suited for another journal in our group Reject manuscript, if the manuscript is substandard
At least two extensive reviews are mandatory to compose the editorial decision. Where reviewer recommendations are conflicted, the editorial board will be contacted for further advice and a presiding decision. Manuscripts are then either accepted, rejected or authors are required to make major or minor revisions (both reviewer comments and editorial comments may need to be addressed). Once a revised manuscript is re-submitted, it is assessed along with the responses to reviewer comments and if it has been adequately revised it will be accepted for publication. Accepted manuscripts are then copyedited and typeset by the production team before online publication. Articles may be rejected directly by the Chief Editor if judged to be out of scope or if scientifically or formally sub-standard. Appeals against decisions following peer review are considered on a case by case basis and should be sent to the journal editor.
