For authors

Review Process

All materials submitted are initially screened by the Editors to determine if they are suitable for the publication. Suitable materials proceed to the next step.

For the main review, two reviewers are selected from external reviewers. This process maintains a double blind review in which the author(s) and the reviewers remain anonymous to each other.

The authors are informed of the decision within 12 weeks after submission. In case of delay, the Editors contact the authors, and explain the reason and the expected schedule.
