Peer Review Process

Each paper is reviewed by the Editor-in-Chief and, if it is judged suitable for this publication, it is then sent to two independent referees for double blind peer review. Based on their recommendation, as well as consultation between relevant Editorial Board Members, the Editor-in-Chief then decides whether the paper should be accepted as is, revised or rejected.
