Peer Review Process

This journal uses double-blind review. All contributions will be initially assessed by the editor for suitability for the journal. Papers deemed suitable are then typically sent to a minimum of two independent expert reviewers to assess the scientific quality of the paper. It means that the identities of the authors are concealed from the reviewers, and vice versa. To facilitate this, please include the following separately: Title page (with author details): This should include the title, authors' names, affiliations, a complete address for the corresponding author including an e-mail address, running title, conflicts of interest, funding, acknowledgement, and author contribution. Blinded manuscript (no author details): The main body of the paper (including the references, figures, tables and any acknowledgements) should not include any identifying information, such as the authors' names or affiliations. The Editor is responsible for the final decision regarding acceptance or rejection of articles. The Editor's decision is final.
