Editorial Flow

The following is the editorial workflow that every manuscript submitted to the journal undergoes during the course of the peer-review process. Once a manuscript is submitted for publication, the manuscript is technically checked by the journal's editorial office to ensure the basic formatting and language. Once this is done, the manuscript is sent to an appropriate Subject Editor based on the subject of the manuscript. If the Subject Editor finds that the manuscript may not be of sufficient quality to go through the normal peer review process, or that the subject of the manuscript may not be appropriate for the journal's scope, the manuscript shall be rejected with no further processing. If the Editor finds that the submitted manuscript is of sufficient quality and falls within the scope of the journal, they should assign the manuscript to a number of external reviewers, provided that no conflict of interests exists between these reviewers and the manuscript's authors. The reviewers will then submit their reports on the manuscripts along with their recommendation of one of the following actions to the Editor:

The peer-review process is single blinded; that is, the reviewers know who the authors of the manuscript are, but the authors do not have access to the information of who the peer reviewers are.
