Peer-review Process

Submitted manuscripts are subjected to initial checks to assess their suitability for review (e.g. completeness and relevance). After that, the manuscript proceeds to the reviewers. The double-blind peer review is applied, which means that the reviewers of the paper will not be able to know the identity of the author(s), and the author(s) will not be able to know the identity of the reviewer. The reviewers comment on the quality of the work, as well as on its originality and its importance. The turn-around time for the peer review process is a maximum of two months.
