Peer Review Process

All submissions are initially assessed by an Editor, who decides whether or not the article fits the scope of the journal and is suitable for peer review. Submissions considered suitable are assigned to one or more independent experts, who assess the article for clarity, validity, and sound methodology.

The journal operates a modified single-blind peer review process. This means that referees remain anonymous unless they recommend acceptance. Referees who recommend acceptance will be identified in the article colophon as “recommending referee” should the article be accepted for publication. 

We encourage referees to review the article as soon as possible, preferably within four weeks. Please let us know if you expect to require more than four weeks.

Reviewers are asked to provide formative feedback, even if an article is not deemed suitable for publication in the journal.

Based on the reviewer reports the editor will make a recommendation for rejection, minor or major revisions, or acceptance. Overall editorial responsibility rests with the journal’s Editor-in-Chief, who is supported by an expert, international team of editors.
