Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are subject to peer review and editorial approval. Articles will be sent to at least three reviewers. The reviewers are masked as to the identity of the authors and their affiliation. Authors are usually notified within few weeks to few months about the evaluation of their manuscript. Reviewers are selected based on their expertise within the topic area of the submission, either from our long reviewer list or from those who are proposed by authors. On receiving reviewers comments, authors are requested to send the revised article, and a copy of their reply to the reviewers, including the comment and explaining the replies to questions and changes made to the revised version typed in red. Communication regarding a specific manuscript will take place between the journal and the designated corresponding author only.)
