Review Policies

This journal has adopted a double blind reviewing policy, where both the referee and author remain anonymous throughout the process. Please remove all identifying features from the paper itself, ensuring that Authors’ identity is not revealed. However, this does not preclude Authors from citing their own works. However, Authors must cite their works in a manner that does not make explicit their identity. Editors will email selected Reviewers the submission. Reviewers who agree to review the paper submit their comments, and select a recommendation. After the refereeing process is complete, a section editor will make a decision for acceptance or rejection. There are two types of revisions: major or minor. For a major revision, original referees will be invited to review the manuscript again. For a minor revision, no more reviews are required, the editor will make the final decision of acceptance if both the content and format are acceptable.
