The journal applies a double-blind review procedure (both reviewers and authors’ identities remain anonymous). Manuscripts submitted to the journal are initially reviewed by the editor, who determines whether the manuscript will be sent to outside reviewers.
The editors have the right to reject manuscripts at the pre-review stage; manuscripts rejected by the editors at the pre-review stage are not subject to further consideration, and the author cannot re-submit the article for consideration.
If the article complies with the requirements of the journal, it is sent to reviewers, who are asked to judge the validity, significance, and originality of the submitted work. Reviewers do not possess any information about the authors’ identities and vice versa. The Editor-in-Chief has final decision on the acceptance or rejection of all manuscripts.
The review process may take up to four weeks.
