Potential contributors are asked to observe the following:
Submissions will undergo a two-stage review process:
- The editors will determine whether a manuscript fits the general scope of the journal (1 month).
- Following the editors’ preliminary review, the submissions undergo blind, peer, external review by 2-3 experts in the discipline (2-3 months).
- The editors will notify the authors of the receipt of their manuscripts and will keep them informed of the status of the review process.
- If the reviewers' response is favorable, authors undertake the necessary revisions and resubmit the manuscript (time frame variable according to authors)
