All submitted manuscripts are reviewed by the managing editor to determine whether they are properly prepared and comply with the ethical policy of the journal. Manuscripts that do not comply with the journal's ethical policies or standards are rejected prior to peer review.
After the manuscript has passed the initial review, it is submitted to reviewers for peer review. We use double-blind peer review, meaning the reviewers do not know the names of the authors. The reviewer's comments are confidential and are disclosed only with the express consent of the reviewer.
Reviewers also provide editors with a score that indicates the value of the article. After the completion of the next journal issue this score will be used to identify an outstanding article for which APC amount will be refunded and the author will be paid an $300 honorarium.
Upon completion of the review process, the author will be notified of the journal's decision. The follwing outcomes are possible.
