Peer Review Process

The following is the editorial workflow that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the peer-review process. The entire editorial workflow is performed using the online review system. Once a manuscript is submitted for publication, the manuscript is checked by the journal’s editorial office to ensure the files are complete and that the relevant metadata is in order. Once this is done, the manuscript is assigned to an academic editor based on their subject expertise. The academic editor performs an initial assessment before inviting some potential reviewers to provide a peer-review report. (The academic editor can reject a manuscript before review if not deemed suitable.)
