About peer-review process
When authors submit papers electronically to , the editorial staff sends an acknowledgment of the paper's receipt – usually within about one week. Those receiving no acknowledgment within 10 days are requested to contact the editorial office immediately.
All submitted manuscripts are sent to two anonymous referees who evaluate them for originality, validity, novelty, methodology, correct citation of relevant work, and the importance of content and conclusions.
The time required for review depends on referee response – usually within about two months. In rare cases taking a few weeks longer, it may have been difficult to find a second referee.
When reviews are completed, authors receive referee's comments and a decision of acceptance, conditional acceptance with minor revisions, revision and resubmission due to the need for major revisions, or nonacceptance.
Revised manuscripts are returned to initial referees, who may request further revision. Once referees receive and confirm papers, they make a final decision on acceptance or nonacceptance. This decision is then reported to authors.
