Peer Review Process
All submitted manuscripts will be first evaluated by the editors. Those inappropriate manuscripts to our journal criteria are rejected promptly without external review. Manuscripts estimated to be of potential interest to our readership are sent to double-blind reviewers. The editors then make a decision based on the reviewer’s recommendation from among several possibilities: rejected, require major revision, need minor revision, or accepted.
