Peer Review Process

All manuscripts are reviewed by double-blind reviewers consisting of an editor and members of the Editorial Board or qualified outside/external reviewers. Language used in this journal is English. This is done within the shortest given time. The journal, above all, strives to return reviewers’ comments to authors within 3 weeks. The Editorial Board re-review manuscripts that are accepted until they are revised.

Peer review is designed to assess the contribution, validity, relevance, quality and often the originality of articles for publication. Its ultimate purpose is to maintain the integrity of science by filtering out invalid or poor-quality articles.

From a publisher’s perspective, peer review functions as a filter for content, directing better quality articles to better quality journals and so creating journal brands.

Running articles through the process of peer review adds value to them. For this reason, publishers need to make sure that peer review is robust.
