Blind Peer Review Process

All submitted manuscripts are read by the members of editorial office. To save time for authors and reviewers, only those papers that seem most likely to meet our editorial criteria are sent for formal blind peer review. Those papers judged by the editors to be of insufficient general interest or otherwise inappropriate are rejected promptly without external review.

Manuscripts judged to be of potential interest to our readership are sent for formal review, typically to two or three reviewers. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewers' advice, from among several possibilities:

  • Accept as it is
  • Accept with minor changes
  • Accept with major changes, inviting the authors to revise their manuscript to address specific concerns before a final decision is reached
  • Reject
