Manuscript submission and the first evaluation
Manuscripts must be submitted through the Online Manuscript Submission and Tracking System (OMSTS). The editorial office evaluates the manuscript against the aims and scope of the journal. It will then be forwarded to at least 3 peer reviewers.
Peer reviewer and peer review process
The objective of the journal is to speed up the decision process without compromising on quality.
To achieve this objective the peer reviewers may be members of the editorial board or external reviewers. The selection of peer reviewers depends on their availability and the subject of the manuscript.
The manuscript will be accepted, if all peer reviewers recommend the manuscript be accepted.
The manuscript will be rejected, if more than half of peer reviewers recommend the manuscript be rejected.
In all other cases the reviewers’ comments will be sent back to the submitting author to revise the manuscript.
