The peer review process

The Journals aim at rapid publication of research results while maintaining a rigorous peer review process. The editors will provide an initial response to all pre-submission enquiries within a week. In addition, they will make every effort to give authors a decision following peer review within two to four weeks of an article’s submission. If the review process takes longer due to special circumstances, authors will be notified promptly by e-mail. Accepted articles will be published online within two weeks. Suggestions by the editors about revision do not imply that a revised version will necessarily be accepted. If minor revision is required, authors should return a revised version in two weeks. If major revision is required, authors should return a revised version within three months. You must clearly indicate the changes that have been made. Revised manuscripts that are not resubmitted within the indicated time frames will be treated as a newly submitted manuscript. Authors who disagree with Editor’s decisions may contact the Chief Editor for final decision. The Editor and the Publisher are not responsible for the scientific content and statements of the authors of accepted papers.

Please note that after submission we email all authors to ask them to confirm their co-authorship, agree to the submission of the article, and agree that the corresponding author may act on their behalf throughout the review and publication process. If the order of authors changes after submission, or if any authors have been removed or added, all authors will need to confirm they are happy with the change, either by email.

INVITATION TO REVIEW

The Editorial Executive Director will send out review requests to the selected reviewer via email. The request contains the title and abstract of the article for which a review is needed. The question in the form asks the reviewer if he accepts or declines the invitation to review the article within seven days of receiving the invitation. If the reviewer accepts the invitation to review, the complete article will send by email and ask the reviewer to finish the evaluation within 14 days.

DECLINING AN INVITATION TO REVIEW

If the reviewer chooses to decline the invitation to review the article, the editors will be very thankful if the reviewer suggest alternative reviewers in the same field.
