Peer Review Process

After submission, manuscripts are first reviewed by secretariat. Manuscripts with incorrect formatting or unacceptable language or style will be returned to authors for correction before transmission to the Editor-in-Chief. A common reason for return at this point is unacceptable quality of English, and so authors who are not fluent in English are encouraged to seek help with writing prior to submission. Acceptable manuscripts will be examined by the Editor-in-Chief and either accepted without review, rejected without review, or assigned to a Section Editor. Section Editors elicit reviews from qualified experts. Reviews are considered by Section Editors and the Editor-in-Chief, a decision is made, and authors are notified of review decisions as promptly as possible.
