Editorial Process (peer review)
Peer Review Process
Every submitted article is independently reviewed by at least double blind review (two peer-reviewers). The decision for publication, amendment, or rejection is based upon their reports/recommendation. After being reviewed, there will be four kinds of editor decision based on reviewers’ recommendation:
- Accept Submission: The submission will be accepted without revisions.
- Revisions Required: The submission will be accepted after minor changes have been made.
- Resubmit for Review: The submission needs to be re-worked, but with significant changes, may be accepted. It will require a second round of review, however.
- Decline Submission: The submission will not be published in the journal.
The articles sent back to the authors for revision should be returned to the editor without delay. The revised article returned later than 10 days will be considered as new submissions. The revised article can be sent to editorial through the Online Submission Interface.
